are you spamming for yotang if not then you should know that yotang has underpowered lasers if you dont want to spend a ton go with rayfoss and get a little lower power.

buy both and a roll of duct tape. then tape both lasers together and you might have a 50mW laser if lucky.

Since its going to be underspec crap IMO, you'd be better off getting the focal price ones for alot less money...

You really have a strong aversion to pay 5$ more for a Rayfoss? You are okay with 125 for a crap boblaser but won't go for Rayfoss "too expensive" you say... they have one for 130$ in 4 colors and all are waterproof. -> www.rayfoss.com
This one will have a good verified output that is what you ordered not FP crap that's more like <50mW, and it's waterproof!

I'm having the same problem^ :p IMO don't buy either. They will both suck. No matter what. Period. Rayfoss isn't very expensive at all relatively speaking. Just save your money till you can buy one from one of the more reputable dealers.

:yh:

most people here who bought stuff at o-like and rayfoss are quite happy with what they got (including me). i doubt that you will get a real 200mW from yotang. if you want to go cheap why don't you try deal extreme's 200mW?

DealExtreme: $53.78 200mW Green Laser Pointer Pen Black

only 54 bucks and has good reviews. even if that thing puts out 100mW it's still a bargain. seems to me like what WretchedMerc said that you try to spam for yotang?

Edit: did you guys also notice that rayfoss.com is gone AWOL?

Focalprice sucks for anything over 50mw! That laser would probably not be over 150mw, and would die in a week. Save your money, and buy from o-like.

Thats just the diode. You would have to build your own laser with that, and I think those diodes are known to be about 200mw not 300, and I think the 200mw waterproof one from rayfoss is known to be a little underspec too.

Any and all of the cheap china companies will have underspec lasers with poor divergence and will be rather unstable(DPSS ones) its just a matter of buying the best possible junk available, and rayfoss and olike as well as ledshoppe are all known for higher quality cheap lasers, way better than DX or focalprice but not top notch in any means.
Ive heard of toplaser and own two of them both 50mW, one in green and one in violet. They were cool lasers when I first got them, and didnt know alot, but now compared to my 'good' lasers, they are crap. Poor build quality, but in their defense, both are still very close to spec.
