Default Looking for a 50mw-100mw 405 or 450 nm laser that's reasonably priced

Hello guys, new member here first time poster but I've been lurking for a bit.

Here is what I'm interested in purchasing. A laser between 50-100mw in either 405nm or 450nm. My first "real" laser I bought was a 532nm 100mw laser from scifi lasers and I absolutely love it. Great price and exactly what I was looking for. Ideally I'd love to get something of the same quality level but I really don't feel like venturing above the 100mw range(anything over 100mw kinda scares me and is more powerful then anything I'd want it for).

Unfortunately it doesn't seem like there are much out there in terms of what I'm looking for. Originally I was going to go for a lazerer and then after reading around these forums decided against it. Currently I'm looking at these options offered at laserbtb and am looking for advice. If anyone knows of some better options I'm all ears.

Thanks for reading this and taking your time to answer my question.

Hey,

It's not the high quality you're looking for, but I recently bought a 405nm from DX (this one, if I remember correctly: Cheap 200281 5mW 405nm Blue-Violet Laser Pointer Pen - Black (3 x AAA)) and when I measured it it put out about 64mW, which would fall inside your range. For a few dollars, I don't think you can go wrong there!

EDIT: Of course, this one was 64mW, there'll be quite some spread probably.

So strange that it's that much more powerful then it says it is. Seems almost dangerous or irresponsible.

But a good find. I have a couple "cheap" pen like lasers in the 5mw range I've bought over the years. But they all seem to break fairly quickly. I'm hoping to find something a tad sturdier. I like to take my lasers with me when I go on camping trips so something that can be a tad on the sturdy side would be nice to get.
