nvm i realised that it is a reading laser so it would be very weak. im planning on buying that $20 red laser diod from StoneTek. i'll probably need some help though... I want it to be able to light matches, pop balloons, and cut electrical tape.

Yeah, open can diodes are better. But be careful extracting them.

Click on the banner above that says Laser Pointers Forums. Then scroll down and look for the board that says, &quot;Group Buys&quot; on it. Click on the &quot;Group Buys&quot; title

Voila!

Peace,
Dave
