Default Shipping issue & reviews of lasers!

Hi

I am considering purchasing a laser from O-Like, this :-
200mW Transformable focusable green laser£*>5~200mw green laser pointer£*>Laser&lighting products£*>www.0-like.com
or this
150mW pocket green laser£*>5~200mw green laser pointer£*>Laser&lighting products£*>www.0-like.com

& i'm wondering if there is any customs issues when entering UK & will it be definately sent (O-like reliability etc)?
also, where can i find reviews of these if there are any & if there are customs issues, are they available in the UK?

I'm also looking at this:-
PowerCheck Laser: Focusing 100-150mW Green Laser - Class 3B Laser - Detailed item view - OdicForce Lasers Online Shop

& this:-

PowerCheck Laser: Green Power 70-150mW+ Laser - Class 3B Laser - Detailed item view - OdicForce Lasers Online Shop

& this when they have more powerful version:-

PowerCheck Laser: TOPLASER 301 ~50mW Laser - Class 3B Laser - Detailed item view - OdicForce Lasers Online Shop

I'm wondering if 100mW is powerful enough to see the beam in daylight & do all the matchstick tricks etc & is it better to get a focusable one & which of the above is best do you think!

Many Thanks

wf

I would get the focusable one from O-like. They are very reliable.

Yes, i was thinking that, its a looker too!! Are the lithium batteries rechargeable as it don't say so on the site?

So is customs ok into UK?

I heard Rayfoss are similar & have similar products & can deliver successfully to UK.

In the sticky about '1st green lase', it says that O-Like are below spec etc! I guess people have used them with success!! & what is the method of shipping to UK should i us?

Thanks

I've heard great things of o-like and Suzie is VERY sweet and helpful. I'm ordering like 200$ of stuff from there today!

Also, 100mW is (correct me if I'm wrong here, guys) JUST enough to start stinging your skin, you CAN pop a balloon with it, but it may take longer, and as far as lighting a match with 100mW (again, I may be wrong, as I've never had a 100mW), either it's not possible or you'll be waiting a loooong time.

The power is very important as to what you can/can't do with your laser, and focus is also paramount, focusability can REALLY make a difference, not only to how good you burn stuff up close, but also gives you ability to burn at distance. The ~200mW red "dilda" that many members, and myself, posess is a great example, it has been in videos by styropyro popping a balloon at like 20 feet. So ya, focus is key for burning stuff.

-hope I helped!

Sorry, I didn't think of this the first post, here's proof of purchase, as far as focusing, the laser shown is the "Dilda" from DX, but trust me, they are SLOW and very unreliable. The same one from o-like is a bit more, but Susie does what she can to help ya get it through customs.

Do you mean the 'dilda' is the same as this:-

200mW Transformable focusable green laser£*>5~200mw green laser pointer£*>Laser&lighting products£*>www.0-like.com
i couldn't see this in green on Dealextreme & do i need a battery charger with this?

It is very nice & the fact that it can be focused is a must i think!

Did you mean that DealExtreme are slow & unreliable whereas O-Like aren't ?
& also will get through customs?

I initially thought you couldn't get stuff through customs above 5mW or is that just usa?

I added the link in O-like to messenger, i assume thats the reason so can ask about things to Susie!!

thanks
