MBDA says it has generated such high powers by using fiber lasers combined with its own patented beam coupling technology to maintain high beam quality – crucial for the lasers to be effective at large stand-off distances. In recent firing tests, the laser is said to have burned through mortar shells and pierced 40 mm-thick steel plates “in a few seconds”.

If you could get a 18650 to slowly charge up a huge capacitor bank, sure, but expect the need to recharge every 10 minutes :D

But can it pop a balloon......

Yes, it can pop hot-air balloons, smacking the passengers to the ground at terminal (pun intended) velocity.

Next test is to see if you can clip the blades off a helicopter, just like you do with a dilda and a housefly :D
