Question just got into lasers.

So i kinda just got into lasers and i keep seeing all these really expensive and high end laser sites but are there any sites that offer weaker lasers like around 10~25mW for under 30 dollars? I don't want to start my new hobby with a death cannon.


And also:I ordered a 10mW green laser form laserpoint.com a couple of weeks ago and it STILL hasn't shipped. maybe my mom didn't order it correctly (Yes my mother ordered it) but I'm not sure. any one ever had a bad experience with this site?

Default Re: just got into lasers.

You should always start with low power laser. Just to get used of it.
Try Ebay for penlasers, http://laserpointerforums.com/f46/4-...see-77135.html
For 4-5 dollars shipped you can't hurt at all. The green lasers are around 30mW and the 405nm 50-100mW.

Default Re: just got into lasers.

Laseglow, Optotronics, Jetlasers, Lazerer, and skylasers sell good lasers. My suggestion is look into O-like, Rayfoss, and Lazerer; they tend to be less expensive. Ebay and Amazon pens are usually over spec, its actually hard to find one thats not over spec in my experiences. Chances are your 5mW pen is actually +10 times the rated power.

Default Re: just got into lasers.

No one has mentioned the WL core? Aside from the feedback, the core seems to be on spec for 5mW. People here tend to like the core the best haha.

Edit: A 5mW 405 would not be bright at allll. thats the reason the ebay pens are so over spec. so they are somewhat visible.

Default Re: just got into lasers.

For reference I have a 75mW 405nm pen and only in a completely dark room is the beam visible.

Note: WL core are overpriced, unless your really in love with the host, which is very nice.

Default Re: just got into lasers.

I have a "5mw" 405 pen, I can see it very well in a dimly lit area; my guess: your laser is >100mW, depending on the width of your beam. If it heats up your hand w/ a fairly wide beam it's probably >130mW.
