Being new to all of this, I am curious as to the difference in beam intensity you would see when comparing a >5mw to a 30mw beam. I am amazed at the power of just my >5mw unit.
I have even been able to light up some low clouds the other night.
i do not personally own anything more powerful than an 8mw which SenKat sent me. I am pretty sure the beam will be quite a bit brighter than a ~5mW laser. I dont know about 7 times brighter, but probably at least twice as bright.
Ok I made up my mind and ordered a DX 30mw. I can't pass it up based on what I have read here. I think it makes for a good second laser. Still can't bring myself sink $150+ for a higher end model yet. Kewl as it would be to have something to burn with. :
