But when you take the 'star lens' off it has a great little beam with a nice focusable spot for burning.

The one I bought isn't available any more but this one below is similar:

405nm Blue Violet Purple Laser Pointer Pen Burning Adjustable Focus Charger | eBay

Not sure if that helps you or if you want something like that but thought I'd share it anyway.

I also have a 445nm version of this laser a "G303" in my sig.

Mine has a halo defect (looks like a ring with the spot the diamond) but it burns (I use it to trim dead leaves from house plants). For the cost it can't be beat.

Also, if you still have the dead host I would take it apart for "educational" value.

I'm 33 and basically just past that point myself. Today I got a 14500 and 18650 powered flashlights. I am tearing them apart and hope to use them for hosts.
