Well that's a bit difficult to say.. I've got a similar "200"mW pen from DealExtreme and I find it very difficult to light matches. It's only possible after focusing the beam with a magnifying glass and after several seconds of steady lighting.I'm quite interested in this laser, do you think it's suitable for me whose looking for a green burning laser that's below SGD $200?
I think a lot of the burning capabilty from this laser comes from the "sweet spot" like styropyro mentioned and since my DX pen doesn't have such a spot, it reduces the effective burning power. It does pop balloons and burn dark materials pretty easy though. Whether styropyro just got lucky with the sweet spot or whether it's a specific DealPerfect thing I don't know...
