Default Newbie: high visibility and burning laser

Hi to all.
What is the best compromise about visibility of the beam and burning capabilty?
I am not searching great power, because I want to put diode and battery into a small package

Anyone? may someone suggest me a good pointer (not red) with the best compromise about beam visibility and a little buring capability?

What's the best compromise of higher visibility of the beam and burning capabilities? Well, the greater the power, the better the both.

But if you mean you want the lowest output laser that you can both visibly see the beam and burn stuff, I'd go with a 50mW green focusable laser, or a 100mW ordinary green laser. For other colors, you'll need slightly more power to see the beam more clearly.

well, you dont need to compromise between visibility and burning ability, since they're proportional to each other (via power). unless you mean about how blu-ray tends to burn some stuff better. green is best visibility anyway. i'd recommend o-like or rayfoss for a starting laser. anything from around 100mW will burn with green. they tend to be focused at infinity so if you want a laser just for burning then a focusable red/violet would be best, unless you wanna spend a bit more for a 445nm build.

This, Green Laser Pointer from Wicked Lasers - Spyder III Pro may be the right one?

Never been a fan of wicked lasers, and that laser you link to there is, in my opinion, severely overpriced.

I would buy a 100mw from O-Like. Same quality, slightly less cool host, <1/2 the price.

Remember too that before power even increases to levels capable of burning, you need glasses to safely use the thing. Safety glasses in turn reduce the visibility. Dreadful catch 22.
Some of it depends on where you live too. Here in Louisiana with 1 billion % humidity even a 5mw green can be seen outside at night.

Best compromise in that situation I would say woudl be a 532nm green at about 100mW; Plenty of visibility and enough to burn when focused. I wouldn't go below 100mW though if you want to burn.
