    Is there a better bang for buck laser than this o-like 50mw?

    I would get the focusable one coz it's focusable (obviously) but also because it has a longer duty cucly, longer battery life and it's sturdier. Also it's more likely to be upspec. If you are looking for a "serious pointer" that would be better, but for a more "casual pointer" that you just...

    Is there a better bang for buck laser than this o-like 50mw?

    I'd get this: LZTN - 532nm 100mW Smallest Green Laser Pointer because it's simple and small yet powerful. From my own experience the duty cycle won't really be a problem unless you are trying to cut plastic, tape etc since it's not likely you will have it powered on for even 10 seconds at a time.

    Wicked Lasers - 5mW Core

    I have the core and it's a good enough laser for the price, but if you want to really be sure that you have a proper laser I'd go with this: https://www.laserglow.com/GAN# Laserglow has top notch customer support so I'm sure if you just ask they could get you one that's exactly 5.0mW (and not...

    How long does it actually take Wicked Lasers to ship?

    Considering it's "special" in the way you got it from a contest I'd say less than 1 month.

    New to this community, thinking about purchasing my first laser

    If you do deside to get that or any other laser from lazerer remember to select the "power certificate" option. Just 5$ extra and you will know for sure how strong your laser is :)

    Cheap safety glasses

    afaik IR by itself isn't any more damaging than lets say green meaning 5mW is considered as safe for accidental exposures of 0.25s or less but what makes it more dangerous than visible light is that its invisible so your eyes can't adjust to it properly (your pupils won't shrink) and ofcourse...

    Cheap safety glasses

    I have these: Laser Glasses - UV to Green Lasers Protection 190-548nm :: Laser Safety :: Dragon Lasers and they work really well for both green and 445nm :) I've got one video showing the glasses in my Spartan review (link in my signature) if anyones interested.
