  • Hi,.. I just tested this little Laser and it works great at 2.5V @ 15mA. Can I keep it powered ON for a long period of time (like 10 hours) without affecting performances ? Could that affect the 3000 hours duration indicated in the specs ? I want to setup a cheap and focused portable TripWire system with a phototransistor facing the laser. It works as expected for the moment. I’m just anxious about long term operation and I don’t have time to test it for so long before looking for a more robust laser. Thx for any comment that could help me take the best decision.

No public wish lists :(
