Here goes the original listing
10mW/30mW/50mW/100mW/200mW 532nm Green Dot Laser Module With Driver Spring/Wire
Item number 182137371105
I have no idea how close if at all this is to 200mW. I will not even guess. The price is amazing. Even if it's not 200 it is very nice and bright for $32 bucks and a few more dollars for the host. I used an old dead 303 and it's working like a champ. Still I want more power! Comparing it to the average laser 301 or 303, ( basing my average on having owned about 10 of them), I would say twice the brightness using the 303 optics. There are a couple other 200mW modules there fore around twice that. $60 something. I will be trying one of those next.
Thanks you in advance for info and advice.

Interesting! From what other users have found, 200mW green modules are almost never on-spec. Since 303s range from 20-100mW, yours is likely somewhere between 100 and 200mW. I'm getting an LPM soon, and I'll probably buy one of those modules too.

They could be anything really, the listing i found for it doesnt mention much detail.

I would be interested in the actual performance, though that will probably vary greatly between units sold as the same power level, and also be temperature sensitive and such.

One thing that would be interesting is to see if there is any real difference between the $20 100 mW version and the $32 200 mW. It doesnt say anything about current consumption so it's hard to say if they use different pump diode power and such.
