Talking Looking to BUY green laser

Hey all, I'm looking to buy a relatviely cheap green laser (5mW but if I can get anythign shipped to the US an is higher i dont mind) pointer under 15 bucks. I mostly want a good battery life but i dont really mind if its short. Anyways I don't know where to buy one and i live in Boston, MA. So i was wondering if there are any places say Chinatown if they sell them there or maybe online?

THANKS!!!

I do believe that it is Illegal to import lasers but I dont think you will get in trouble just your laser might get taken by customs. Yes their is a way to get around it. Most sites will label/mark your laser as a small gift such as a flashlight or something of that sort. Also they will ship batteries and the laser separate to avoid customs testing it. Rayfoss puts a sticker on the lasers that says 1mW to avoid customs. Also faona from rayfoss is a very nice lady and will help you with anything that you need.
Hope I helped,
Cameron

You can buy an O-like module thats green. 5mW+ i got a 100mW module and its GREAT!!! Those aren't illegal because they are "electronical components" You can easily buy a housing for the module. DX sells flashlight Housings. Just drill a hole in the place where they put the led and glue it on.
