I need some help. I bought this laser pointer online and it came with no batteries and doesn't tell me what kind of batteries to get the 18 650 seems to fit but it doesn't work it doesn't turn on I can't find 16340 anywhere and I don't know what to do it's a silver like aluminum looking case with rods going all around it and the button is on the bottom and it's got Allen key screws all around the top for those rods that run the length of the laser does anyone know what I'm talking about

That is the infamous Gatling laser. I'm guessing it's a ~1W 445nm blue. It takes two 16340 batteries, positive end towards the tailcap button.

These are tested 16340 batteries I use myself and if you're in the US, it's the best site you can buy from: https://liionwholesale.com/collecti...800mah-battery-genuine?variant=28408751816798

Please be careful and buy a pair of genuine laser googles here: https://www.survivallaserusa.com/Ea...rd_Laser_Safety_Goggles/p1667092_7862033.aspx

They also have a slip-over version if you wear glasses.
