Okay basically anything from 50-150mw should be focused if you want to burn, if its >150mw and is not focused you should be fine for burning, it just speeds up the process if you want something to light fast, like a match. Yes a 300mw can burn without focus, but it would burn better with focus.

Hey, It's better to start small, then the other way around!

Wear appropriate laser goggles for your wavelength laser. NO EXCUSES!
