All of these laser 303s are the same. Sometimes they have decent power, sometimes they don't. Usually anywhere from 30mW to 100mW. It may be able to slowly cut electrical tape, pop a balloon or light a match. That's about it. Just because it says it burns in the title doesn't mean it does. I feel like we've answered this several times already. You've got about 4 or 5 threads asking questions about the 301/303 lasers.

If you get really lucky you might be able to burn electrical tape.

303's are a crap-shoot though. You might end up with something over 100mw, and you might end up with something <20mw. If you're buying 303's it's wise to buy a few at a time, or buy one that's actually been metered (I think Podo has some).

EDIT: looks like diachi beat me to it :p

Yeah, i have 4-5 posts diachi
I am asking in for different lasers each time. I do not wanna waste money on shit that I can't use for anything that's why. I don't have 300 bucks for these "Good quality, High power" lasers.
eBay lasers are not guaranteed good so that's why I ask you guys if you can maybe help?

I've got a 302 and it puts out 130mW, you really do just take pot luck with 3xx series.

As far as I can see you're asking about 301s or 303s in the threads I'm talking about. Those aren't different lasers than what you're asking about now.

All of the laser 303/301 versions are basically the same thing. Different sellers, but they're all selling the same product made by the same manufacturer.(YL) They will put out anywhere from 30-100+mw depending on the luck of the draw. A 30mw won't burn anything, while the 100mw will probably light matches and slowly burn through plastic when focused. It's impossible to know how powerful of a laser you'll get from that seller because there's so much variation in the product. I personally have 4 YL manufactured lasers which put out something like 30mw, 50mw, 15me and the best one does 90mw.

Have a look at this.

Here you can buy a measured 303 style laser for around $18 which is guaranteed to be at least 100mw. Great beginning burner for the money. I'd 100% recommend buying one of these over playing ebay roulette.

The lasers cant be over 8.96 US Dollar because then i get taxes on and that is like 20 - 30 dollars if it comes outside of Europe.

You could probably get podo at Sanwu to write a low declared value on the package for you.

Exactly correct.

What do you expect from a bottom of the barrel, lowest end, mass produced, cheap Chinese laser that costs, retail, the same a a good cup of coffee?

Forget about any of the claims made by resellers---they are all basically the same thing--outputs can very widely 301/303 lasers.

If you want one with a laser power metered output you can buy one from Podo at Sanwu as has been explained to you before.
