Default 5mW Red - Inexpensive - 100mW

Not a true review but wanted to post after I LaserBee'd it.

112mW peak power.

I have purchased a few of these in various flavors, max so far was a blue at 60mW, so I thought the 112mW was worth an honorable mention.

Sad part is I purchased this for the dogs and hoped it was 5mW, but after looking at it, way to powerful.

Nice to have the LaserBee handy though. Another drawback, my red safety glasses do nothing or very little to the beam strength. They drop it from 110 to 85, so this lil Red is heading for the shelf.

Not a bad lil Red if you're looking for something inexpensive (~$10), it will melt black plastic, but not focused enough for anything else.

Heres the link:

Sounds like you need actual safety glasses.

yeah, but my current glasses are for 405nm to 532nm which oddly enough match the lasers I have.....until now my reds were all 5wM.

I dont plan to do anything with the red so not really worth buying a pair just to cover that wavelength.

But good suggestion none the less.

Oh, I was under the assumption you had goggles FOR red and they were only doing that, lol.
