Default Burning barrier for green laser + magnifying glass

Hello, what is the minimum mW required for a green laser pointer to light matches with a magnifying glass?

A 50-75mW should do the trick with magnifying glass. However, you'd need safety goggles, as the dot would be to bright to make an estimate of the focal point. Good luck !
There are some cheap stuff on the internet that does >50mW regardless of the build quality.
__________________
95mW infiniti - TO OLD !!! Hardly burns anything without good batteries. But nice as a pointer. Looking at NOVA lasers currently for a fresh new one.
125mW pulsar - Piece of 54!T, doesn't do anything. No burning power at all. But very beautiful as a laser pointer.
191mW ++ IgorT Romisen/CREE laser - This really kills your eyes (without goggles).
170-180mW LikeItBright Ultrafire laser - Works like a flashlight, but a beast up close.
200mW + LCC in police host By Moh. Nice red, and very cheap.
550mW Yobresal "Tiny Laser" - Incredible beam. This specific wavelength isn't really comfortable for the eyes though.
NOIR laser goggles OD 7+ for 180-534 nm Oemlasersystems

Other lasers not worth mentioning
TOTAL AMOUNT SPENT ON LASERS = 1065 $ AT LEAST (not much compared to some other people here...)
Always look on the bright side of lasers ------------------- not literally

I live in the United States. It is illegal to import anything > 5 mW into the US unless it is FDA approved.

Where can I buy a 50 mW green laser pointer that is FDA approved and under $200?

Otherwise, where can I buy a 50 mW green laser from a company that is located inside the United States?
