(1) It is strictly prohibited to direct the human eye and please take precautions to avoid static electricity releasing
(2) The output power is figured out by testing multiple mode optical fiber in 23°C±3°C
(3) The testing range will be different in different fibers
(4) The battery life is figured out by testing two new AAA battery in 23°C±3°C.The battery life will be a little different by using different AAA battery.
