Initially, I had thought (as was previously replied) that I'd opt for dealing with Amazon. But, the prices seem to be better, on Ebay.

I see that these are the 1500mW varieties. So, you are using these in your 1000mW engraver, with no issues? I think I remember someone else stating that they COULD be used in my machine, but I just want to make sure I am remembering that, correctly.

the 1500 and 1000 can be switched out. I'm using the 1500 on mine. if you don't feel comfortable then get the 1000.

I have an NEJE clone per say - Meterk.. they are all the same guts..

There's no uncomfortability, at all. Seeing as how you are using a bit stronger laser diode on your 1000mW machine, I can be sure that it will work just as well on mine.

Will be ordering that 1500mW diode (possibly a couple). And, thanks.

Booooh, huuuuuuuuh. Yup my laser diode died today after many, many images burned. Guess that I will join the club and get a replacement like others before me. No regrets whatsoever with the NEJE little laser machine. It died on me as I was engraving a Christian style cross on a leather pen case. Ironic don't you think? Died on the cross.

When you installed the 1500 did you see any change in burn time, aka you had to use lower values for the 50% stronger beam?
