That 50mW black/aluminum pointer from FocalPrice looks pretty sweet. I just read the review a few minutes ago. Might pick one up myself.

Remember to always practice good safety habits when using any laser. And never point it at a plane and/or any flying object. You're just asking to go to jail if you do that.

I can surely wait.

Edit: Oh, I was so confident to get the DX focusable laser. But if this one is good, the 100mw one that is very similar to it might be good too.
But I don't know. I'm tempted to go with the DX one or the FocalPrice 100mw one. But.. I don't know !
I don't have any review of them !

OBS: Focalprice 100mw nonfocusable = $20
DX 50mw focusable = $33

Hey guys,
I think I'll get the DX one, but I have one more doubt. (what a surprise!)
These 2 lasers look very similar. Which one do you think is the best ? Which one should I pick?

DealExtreme: $31.90 Focusable 50mW Green Laser Pointer with Safety Key Lock (1*18650 Included)
DealExtreme: $33.49 Focusable 50mW Green Laser Pointer with Safety Key Lock (1*18650 Included)

Edit: There's one more ! Ranged suggested me this one.

Gabriel, I trust DX more than I trust FP. If you want a reliable laser you could go with this one: DealExtreme: $21.33 L-030 30mW Mini Flashlight Style Green Laser (CR123A)

I know it's 30mW but some do over that power (I've ordered batches of 20 to resell here in Argentina, 7 were underpowered, 8 were much brighter than the 30mW Newwish (True Pen) I own). Maybe you should start with that power and then move on to 100-150mW (o-like has great modules).

If not, you can also try Rayfoss--home and see if one of their lasers is of your interest.

EDIT: As you can see, I'm from Argentina thus I have some experience with latin shipping times. DX orders take from 3 weeks to 90 days (max. I had to wait = 93 days). Same should be with FP. The only order I had from O-Like took only 10 business days. So you might want to consider that.

although cr2, cr123, and 18650 batterie's are inconvenient and hard to find, they have a greater performance then AAA's or AA's.

Siqueirah: Look up "Sanyo Eneloops". They are 1.5V rechargables that work longer than alkalines.
