I have been playing with the Pyfa tool today and I was looking through the different lasers I could fit to my catalyst that i use for mining, uptill now i have been mining with 3x miner I, I can actually fit 4x dual diode mining laser I's

now it says they go through common ore faster (im guessing veldspar/scordite)
but the wiki article states that the cycle is the same as the miner I with a 4m3 increase per cycle is that the bonus 4m3 or is there something im missing?

The text it says, irritatingly, is quite nonesense. Those mining lasers eat every rock equally.
But you're right, your Dual Diode ones a) mine more per cycle and b) use less CPU (=easier to fit).
Be sure to boost your mining skills, too.

Though, if you're into mining, you best train for the Caldari cruiser Osprey (never hurts) and after that, go for Mining Barges such as the Retriever, then Covetor and eventually the Hulk.

Have fun!

Thanks very much for that, I have been training towards the retriever but still 9 days away, I had never noticed the osprey I think I will swap to that.

For serious mining, barges and exhumers are better than Ospreys. But if you want to mine casually while also flying PVP or PVE, train for Osprey so that you can use all Caldari frigates.
