Thanks! :) I was going to make a 'return' thread but I'm unsure how long I'll actually be back for. I'm busy with other things, and my interest in lasers is fading away somewhat, especially because of our strict laser laws. However I still do I enjoy seeing everyone else's collections!
I'm at the ripe old age of 17! I didn't know there was this many users around my age group.
I think it's cool how despite our varying ages, we can all collaborate and form discussion over a common interest.
Yeah if your "5mW" is popping balloons, then I'd say it's at least 50-100mW (if anyone wants to correct me then go ahead). I believe the best burners are mainly regarded as red and violet, and maybe blue as well.
Colours to some extent are just personal preference, some people enjoy different colours over others! Some colours are rarer than others (yellow for example), so then that adds value to that particular colour.
Green is the most visible to the eye, so it's often a favourite. Having 500mW+ just...

This laser was a custom build requested by me, it is an Opnext 120mW 638nm in a black, unmarked, C6 host with an orange tailcap button, to match the orangey-red wavelength :). The laser cost me $125 including...
Wow. Well it turns out the laser is absolutely fine, the battery just wasn't charged properly. I should have probably tried charging it first, but it didn't come to mind because the battery powered my flashlight just fine.
Thanks very much Blord for this great laser, I'll be posting a review...
