A true 100mW focusable green laser, will light a black match, and will pop a balloon.

Obviously with a higher powered laser it's easier/faster.

If you're going to be burning with a laser, you need a pair of safety goggles...

I'd rather go 200. Anyway, for burning alone, red will have more reliable output and will be cheaper. Red also have no infrared component. Green has far more visible beam though.
