Most any green diode you get you'll be able to see a beam in a dark room.
Check out DTR's sale page on here to get a good idea of some commonly accessible diodes available.
Thanks for the help on the diodes I think I'll stick with green then.

That unstable dot and beam unfortunatly is typical of that type of cheaper pointers. Its hit or miss that you might get a good one. Putting more power to it like has been said is a temporary fix and it will kill it soon. You don't have to pay a fortune for a good green one with the beam and dot that you will be happy with. It might be cheaper than you think.
I don't know the UK laws but maby some will chime in.
Check out Sta "Guide to begineers and which companys are good and bad.

This should give you a start.

And in that case, buying a pointer with a regulator will still be far cheaper than buying NiZn cells with a charger.

Spending $11 to partially repair a $2 device is just goofy. Just get a half-decent $8 pointer instead.
