Class 3R Laser
| | Warnlaser tiger series GX limited review
So, My friend bought a tiger 120mW from these guys, it was his first laser. Now this review is limited because I was only able to use it for about 3 minutes at school, and I have what he told me. I know you guys mostly hate warnlaser but it seemed OK. First off, let's get to shipping. It shipped from china to the US no problems with customs, there was a little hitch in a US warehouse that took a couple days but nothing major.
This laser is pretty small, it's barely thicker than the battery. I worry a little about fragility. The button feels sturdy right now, but is one of those clicky ones that might just break soon. the laser in general feels OK. Pretty good quality. It seems the laser is focused at about 10 inches away from the laser itself, and will make the black box it came in smoke instantly at that range. It can light red or blue matches just fine (yes, I have blue matches). My friend says it can pop (included) balloons from about 10 feet no problem, but the dot gets big relatively fast. No real problem for most stargazing/burning. This thing is pretty bright, but I have no LPM so I'd have to put it at a bit below rated power, but I have nothing in this range to compare it to. Also, his laser was silver, which is only shown in one of the pics.
Anyway, It seems fine, but after being active on this forum for a bit I see there are much cheaper alternatives, but this is an OK laser nonetheless. 6/10 for this one.
