    520nm laser pointer powered by AAA?

    I'm looking to buy a 520nm laser diode pen style pointer powered by common batteries like AAA or AA. Do they exist? The reason is I plan to use this once in a while at star parties and I only turn them on very briefly to avoid too much disruptions. So there is no need for long duration lithium...

    Diode based green laser pointer?

    Are all the green lasers made with DPSS (red laser plus a color changer), or are there green laser based on green laser diode? If so, where can I buy them? I'm under the impression it would be more efficient.
