Replacing a laser diode?

So i have this really crappy ebay laser pointer and it runs at <5mw and at 650nm. It is similar to this one

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Laser-Pointer-3in1-LED-Flashlight-Torch-1mW-Silver-P1-/280735356598?pt=AU_Sport_Camping_Hiking_Lamps_Torches&hash=item415d2196b6#ht_3083wt_1139

I was wondering if it would be possible to replace the diode with this one

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Laser-Pointer-3in1-LED-Flashlight-Torch-1mW-Silver-P1-/280735356598?pt=AU_Sport_Camping_Hiking_Lamps_Torches&hash=item415d2196b6#ht_3083wt_1139

whilst still using the same case.
Also could someone tell me what a driver and module is and if they are relevant to replacing the diode.
Thanks

Answer:

To be perfectly honest it isn't worth the time or the money to try to replace a laser diode in a cheap pointer. Just buy a decent pointer instead.

If you're dead set on trying to trade out the diodes, the only way to find out is to crack them both open, and even then I seriously doubt they would be interchangable.

Also, I think you meant to link to two different lasers, but you provided the same link twice.
