anyone got suggestions on a super bright laser under 60$?
I do have safety glasses. I have no preference, just the brightest laser for the price.Define bright? Any preference on wavelength? Size? Host style? My definition is likely to be very different from yours when it comes to lasers.
You can pick up 1W 445s for around that price. Of course, you can also pick up a cheap 532nm pointer for <$10 that is potentially just as bright as a 1W 445 if you happen to get one that'll hit 100mW.
Do you have proper laser safety glasses?
I don't really need a powerful laser. I bought a 1w 445(or 450) already.Powerful compared to what?
Cheap and powerful are mutually exclusive---"you get what you pay for"- usually is the case.
There are a lot of nice bright lasers for $60 or less--powerful is another story
Don't believe they are of better quality. Iv'e seen member Alien Laser post a thread where he runs a 532nm 303 for 2 hours straight with no issue.
Yes Idrago, considering the extra output can be 20mw or more of IR, I would go for 2 or more of Paul's links..In my experience, up to 25% of the output of those pointers is infrared
