I'm interested in blue and violet lasers. I'm also interested in pen lasers. And I just want to have a laser to start off with.
Where should I get it?:undecided:

Sorry but you havent read much on here have you? Please search first before starting pointless threads. 2 seconds of your time with the search bar would have given you an answer...

Edit: Look in the BST or review section of the forum. Alternatively try ebay, amazon etc for pen lasers.

I get what your trying to say. Thanks, but what company makes the best blue or violet lasers? What should I search? Don't need over 20MW.:thinking:

Wow I dont think I need over 20 MW either!! ;) lol

If you want a cheap pen laser try ebay they will cost around $4 -$5 per pen, but remember they will more than likely be over spec. Theres no point in recommending companies unless you are interested in higher power, guaranteed output lasers. Low power 405 pens are 2 a penny and sold everywhere.

Anyway try typing these into the search bar and then do some reading ;):

cheap ebay pens
overspec pen
cheap pen laser
405 pen laser

:beer:

I am quite sure that 20MW would require like what.... 10;20 ??? MILION DOLLARS? :)
Now 20mW maybe its another story...

As much as I really don't want to respond due to the low quality and your arrogantness...

Unless you want to spend upwards of $80 on a lower powered 405nm laser, Your best bet is getting the cheap $5 pen lasers on eBay... It's hit and miss, Some will be weak, some will be strong...

For gods sake, read the rules before you even consider making another thread..

Thanks, that helped. I never knew that 20 Mw was that much. So 1 w is expensive:yh:
It's just a matter of knowing te terminology, 1Mw (megawatt) 1Kw (kilowatt), 1W, (one watt), 1mW (milliwatt), 1uW (nano watt).
When you learn that than you realize the huge mistake you made. To run a 1Mw laser you probably would require of the energy of an electric power plant.
Read my friend, this forum can help you but just if you learn fist. No point in pretending that the users will answer every question like at school. Even at school there is a time for questions, but after the lesson has been explained, and this whole forum is your explanation.

Lazerer.com and o-like make ok lasers for the price but the best will be in the buy sell trade section. but i wouldn't recommend a blue laser for a first laser they are usually 1 W or more and will be very harmful in the hands of someone new.. 405nm can be found with less power .. if you do get one get some laser goggles .. if you want to start off with a laser i recommend a 5mw one then go up from there

I shouldn't buy from WL right? I hear that they are bad, but people also tell me they have good lasers like the Rifle or the Krypton.

Hey KungFuMaster. I always try to buy from members if I can, but many have had good luck with Fasttech laser pointers. because of your age and experience they might be a good option for you and maybe a little safer than ebay unless you know a reputable seller.
https://www.fasttech.com/category/1620/lasers Be sure to double check customs laws in your country I believe you are in Poland. Including location in your profile will help members help you.

If you want a high powered violet or blue, go with lazerer, laserbtb (skylasers), or rayfoss.

The lasers sold here on LPF are good too.

Go with amazon or ebay if you want a cheap blue or violet pointer.

But if you have a few benjamins handy, you should look at laserglow. :D

Study the colors (wavelength), what are their effect on human eye (relative brightness of each wavelength), what are the damages that you can suffer/cause if you misuse a higher powered laser pointer..

Welcome to the forums. Good way to start :beer: just don't necropost and always play safe.
