Default Lighting Cigs with IR laser?

I was wondering how much power would you need to light cigs easily with an IR laser.

I know from the lasers I used to own

a 200mW red can light a cig easily

100mW+ greenie can light one in a few seconds

100mW+ blu-ray can light one too

so ?mW IR can light one in a few seconds? (also needs to be handheld achievable power) and what it would cost to aquire one (by making or otherwise)

I'm thinking 200mW+ would be needed but I think 500mW would be overkill?

Default Re: Lighting Cigs with IR laser?

If you say that a 200mw can light a cigarette than i am almost sure that a ir does it to.

In that case i think that this laser is great to do the job.

lol that was the laser I was looking at, was wondering if that could, in fact, light up a cig. just something cool for parties or whatever. I have a big list of wants but a short supply of cash to fill those wants >_<

Default Re: Lighting Cigs with IR laser?

I usually have the laser pointed at the cig away from my face (held in hand and not puffing on it), or from the side and slightly down... how else would you light it? up and possible into your eyes?

My 2W 808nm handheld (1 x 18650) will easily light a cigarette or cigar. The more power you have, the quicker it will light. At the 2W level, the user and any bystanders need goggles, so this is definitely not for parties.
