I wanted to add a laser to this replica, so I put in a laser housing.
The laser module is a 5mw 650nm - www.aixiz.net
We purchased our phaser from shop.com
and received some
cash back too. I believe we found it for $34.99 with a dollar
something cash back savings, a good price.
You can sign up for a free shop.com
account and when you
purchase you get cash back from alot of different stores. Check
out the stores link and see the cash back savings. I buy alot of my replicas and electronic
gadgets through this site.
I wanted to use the existing switch on the phaser so all i added
was a 3volt battery pack and laser housing with some modifications
to the insides.
The laser housing can be replaced with up too a 200mw or so
which is capable of popping balloons but i wanted to keep it
safe, just in case one of the grand kids got hold of it.
