Well any pen sized laser that runs off AAA's is gonna be terrible on battery life, so I wouldn't consider that a downside of the infiti 95mW cause it is a downside of all CNI pen lasers. Recharable AAA's should solve the problem of low battery life.spyrorocks said:If your looking for value, try out TechLaser's infiniti 95mw. Mine is an awesome laser, can do most of the experiments that people talk about (popping balloons, lighting matches, cutting electrical tape).
Downsides are that it sucks lots of battery power, and its rather hard to get the lens perfectly clean again when it gets dusty. I keep mine in a ziplock bag so it doesn't get dusty too often.

Dx true 30 $24.57 sku:469
Assuming you have a charger Dx AAA BTY 1350 $3.50 sku:6292
Dx focusable module $4.30 sku:5914
Sony Diode $19.50 Stonetek.org
Dx MXDL Flashlight $12 sku:4171
Dx CR123A 5 pack $4.30 sku:5639
Various maplin parts £(couple of quid)
And make one of these
Outcome is two lasers, more power and money still in your pocket (to put towards safety glasses)
