Default "10pack 5mW red laser module/dot/adjustable lens" with or without driver?

While I was ordering a different laser, I noticed this cute small pack of 10 small lasers. For only 1.85Euro per laser I could not resist not ordering them.

But now I'm wondering if they include regulated drivers. They state 3-5V input, which is a bit strange if they where just diodes. Because diodes have a pretty fixed voltage drop. They are also called "module" which makes me think they are "all in one"

But for that price and form factor I'm surprised they can fit in any driver. Does anyone know if I have to add my own driver?

The single diode which looks the same (but is even smaller) is clearly a diode, and much more expensive:

electrical Specs..

For an experienced laser god like yourself concluding that from the specs would be childs play. But not everyone is that divine. So I'm trying to be sure before I get them.
