Default Cheap 200mW vs Rayfoss/O-like 100mW

Hello
I bought a very crappy 200mW $40 laser pen from a site called yotang.com a while ago. I didn't know a thing about lasers when i bought it, but now i know that it was most likely nowhere near 200mW. When i first got it, it could light matches, cut electrical tape, and shine an amazing distance, but it broke after a few days. I'm interested in buying a slightly better quality laser with similar burning power and visibility level that my old laser had originally. I have seen on this site that o-like and Rayfoss are pretty good places to buy. So, my question is, would any of the lasers that i am going to link being 100 and 150mW be the equivalent in power to the lesser in quality old laser? If so, which of them would you recommend? Thanks so much for your help!

1. Silver chrome green laser 100mW/good finish [OLSGL100] - $62.99 : Zen Cart!, The Art of E-commerce

2. www.rayfoss.com

3. www.rayfoss.com

hopefully the links work
Thanks Again!!

no If you want real quality go to jetlaser, optotronics, or laserglow if you want pretty good cheap quality go to lazerer.com rafosses rep has gone way down and o-like is also not as good as it used to be.

So would you recommend one of these instead?

LZCB - 532nm 100mW Focusable Green Laser Pointer

LZMN - 532nm 100mW Focusable Green Laser Pointer

Do you think they would match the power of a crappy "200"mW?
Thanks for your help!

^^^Either of those will do better than the pen you had.
