Please refer below Demo：
1. Laser has positive pole and negative pole after the upgrade of rectification circuit inside laser module. When you connect positive pole and negative pole inversely, laser module will not produce laser. In this case, you should exchange the wire connectors.
2. The rectification circuit becomes smaller after the upgrade. In order to reduce changes and maintain previous appearance, there is only wiring parts inside power source.
3. DO NOT use laser in full power for a long time. It is suggested to use laser under 90% of the full power so as to extend the life of laser module.
