Default Re: What should I get for my first laser?

Ok, leaving burning out of the equation completely, what is a nice green laser pointer where I can see the beam in day and night. Something affordable and compact. Keep in mind that this is my first laser ever and I don't want to spend too much and lose interest later.

LaserGlow sells "True 5mW 532nm" lasers, those are pretty good.

Default Re: What should I get for my first laser?

Oh and I read the product description. I was a bit confused when it said "Don't keep the laser on continuously for more than 20 secconds or it will get burnt from inside easily" Is that a bad sign or are all lasers like that? Not to mention seconds was spelled wrong.

Default Re: What should I get for my first laser?

Lol yeah they have misspelled many a description . And that is the lasers duty cycle. I've left mine on for much longer. They just want to make sure you don't overheat it. If it feels warm turn it off. And if you leave it on for a several min. The lens will melt. But normally you don't want to have it on for more then around a min anyways.

To show you how much quality the builders here work with. My 3595m laser has a three min duty cycle.
My 3000mw doesnt get too warm after two min.

You will get what you pay for.

You can get it from sci-fi lasers website

If your willing to spend more you could go with a Ti-B 100mw green from jetlasers

TI B LASERS - 532NM GREEN. Titanium lasers by JETLASERS

They are more expensive but they look just amazing and they are made of titanium. check these threads out for the Ti-B laser as well

As everyone said (almost) every laser has a duty cycle. If you got the sci-fi laser I wouldn't leave it one for more than a minute or two. The Ti-B laser from JL has a duty cycle of about 3 minutes. You get what you pay for. Sci-Fi lasers is a reputable company so you are in good hands if you go with them.
