Remember to get goggles....

Do some research and you will find a laser that suites your needs. This question has been asked MANY MANY times.

Red (635nm) is the cheapest wavelength for more power. If you want something that will burn in green, blue, or violet it will cost some more money. Green (532nm) is the most visible to our eyes, so it has the most visible beam compared to other wavelengths at the same power. Green is also the most expensive.

do you think that a blu-ray 405nm 400mw is overkill for something that i want?

Im guessing you are looking at the olike one. Its a really good deal. You will like it a lot more, but you have to make sure to get safety glasses with it.

Its your choice, if you want a visible beam and some good burning power go for the Lazerer one, if you want a low visibility beam but great burning power go for the o-like one.

The 200mw might sting after a while but it wont burn your hand, meaning it wont burn your hand unless you leave it on it on purpose. The 400mw im not sure since I dont have it, but im guessing it wont be able to do that much damage either, unless you leave your hand in it for a while. I burn myself by accident in less than a second with my 1.2w all the time though. :eg:
