    There is no power supply. Those aren't always easy to find. The seller is a member at candlepowerforums. Maybe here too. I had one but I don't think I got 60mW out of it.

    60 mw is pretty damn hot for one of those tubes. I've got 3 of them, and the best I've ever gotten is around 40 mw. 60 mw would mean the thing is brand-spankin' new.

    Of course, it's only single line at 488nm, and you still need a PSU to drive it. Plus it will generate about 1200 watts of heat... But the price is right.

    Yea mine used to heat the small room I had it in nicely. It's like adding an extra appliance to the power bill. Cost me $50 a month to run is 3 to 4 hours a day.

    I've had bad experiences with him. He does not have an accurate meter. He has one designed for 808nm and reads everything with that. I would be 99.99% sure that laser makes less then 40mW unless way overdriven.

    Ahhh... Just noticed that it's one of Chris Leubner's listings. Yeah, that figures. He's pulled a few stunts in the past. (He knows better, but will often claim things are "untested" when they're really broken.) Ben, you're not the only one that has been burned by this guy.

    Yep, he lies a LOT! I bought a diode off him and he claimed it had a DOA warranty, but would not refund/replace when it didn't work. I was using a professional driver and he said it must have been my fault.
