First off are you onlu looking at 532s or are you open to 445, 405 or 650? If you are set on 532 then why are do you need above 150mW? Are you just looking for it to light match pop balloons and cut tape? If so you can get a 100mW and save money. I would say no on lazerpoint and also aliexpress but thats just me. Havent heard much on the other two places. Lazerer is a trusted placed for a bunch of members here including me. Do you have proper safety glasses and if not you better plan on getting some, actually NEED to get some. Alright ones will cost ~10 and good ones wil be $45.

Any lazerer is fine. Thats a 100mW "big head". If you want over 150 then youll havr to get a 200mW lazere r. I like lazerer since you can get a power cert and know for a fact what the power is

I heard Lazerpoint's laser aren't up to spec. Lazerer is a good site. Also I would see at laserbtb. If you want a high powered laser which is amazingly overspec I would recommend you this one -> http://=http://www.laserbtb.com/prod...L 532nm 50-300.
This guy had an overspec of 107mW!!! Notice it's just the 100mW version. -> http://="http://laserpointerforums.c...ser-72930.html. Another guy reached 169mw, which is also amazing overspec! I will order next days the 150mW one, because between 100mW and 150mW the price is just $10. The host is great, very high quality. You will also have 6 months of warranty! Don't forget goggles.

Hope I could help you.

Hello Valendro, sorry to go off-topic here (although not really since I'm sure RedCarrot will want to know this as well.) Are sky lasers a good supplier? I'm wanting to buy a lab laser of my own and they seem to have some for pretty good prices. I just want to know if you've had any experience with them.

Thanks,
Gun

Hey Gun,

well, I never had experience with them, but I just heard they are a solid company, which is definitely up to spec and often, really really often overspec.
They allow PayPal which is very comfortable if you haven't a credit card or don't want to spend a lot of taxes with western union.
You'll have 6 months of warranty time which is pretty nice, because not every site offer that.

I would say laserbtb (skylasers) has better quality than Lazerer and less than high end company's like Laserglow, CNI, Optronics...

You can't do wrong with laserbtb. Anyway I would recommend you to mail Kevin (he sells the lasers of laserbtb, you can get their E-mail on their site). He response very quickly.

Hope you'll find your perfect Lab-Laser. Hope I could help you. Feel free to ask.

Well, let's see.

LZSK 100mW - Very bright laser, one of the most bought laser from Lazerer, very solid host, looks nice, high quality host, focusing well, burns matches with ease, pop balloons, cut black tape, nice on/off button (click-on-click-off), but maybe a bit dangerous, because it's on the bottom of the laser (you can't react fast like the LZBH), no key (safety), beam visible

LZBH 100mW - this would be my 2rd choise instead of HL532 from laserbtb, very bright laser, not really famous, easy focusing, big host, LED (looks great I think, but for some annoying at dark place, because it's so bright), solid host, cuts black tape, light matches with ease, pop balloons, on/off button maybe annoying, because you have to keep your thumb on it, key (safety), beam visible

High Power Laser 100mW - don't know about this laser, ugly host, on/off button (click - on - click - off), maybe up to spec or less

Sharp Laser 100mW - the best host, very bright, light up matches, but heard from problems of focusing, cuts tape, pop balloons, look for the review (it exists one), beam is visible, on/off button (click - on - click - off)

Power Rock 100mw - second best host, very bright, focusing difficult for lightning up matches, cuts tape, pop balloons, beam is visible, on/off button (click - on - click - off)


I would go for the LZBH. I would say Lazerer has a bit more power than
O-Like. Maybe 10-25mW more. Their focusing is easier than the O-Likes. I would prefer the LZBH instead of LZSK because of the key, which allows you to turn of your laser and make it safety for children.

Hope this helped you. Ask, if you still have questions.

The quality may isn't the best, but I would say it's "enough" for an 100mW laser. If you want an high quality battery, which allows you definitely more laser uptime (longer power, not more) I can recommend this http://www.amazon.com/EagleTac-3100mAh-Protected-Rechargeable-Battery/dp/B007GEU666 to you. The power of the laser can't get influence by the battery (I guess). Maybe just when the battery is on his way dying.

Any questions? Feel free :-)
