Default Recommend me a laser?

Hi,
Please can someone recommend me a laser pointer that can light matches, pop balloons etc. Any colour. I live in the UK
I have some safety glasses, and I am aware it can destroy your eyes if you are not careful.
$60 MAX !!!!
Thanks

Default Re: Should I get this laser?

Nope, that laser is going to be junk. If all you want is something that can burn matches and pop balloons then ill go through my lasers and see what I have that I can sell. is Green laser okay or do you need red?

First do you know what happens if a laser of that power hits your retinas? It could be disastrous. Start with something fairly low power

You could also try O-like... but I still recommend that you save up money and buy a quality laser. Everyone wants to burn things, but no one realizes and respects the power of a laser and its dangers

No harm in trying. O-like is a decent company, sometimes not so great but sometimes pretty good. Contact susie if you do by from them
