Hello everyone, i'm new here, i found out this website while googling for a good laser.

Anyway, i'm trying to find a good laser that can pop a balloon, light a match stick or able to see it in the sky etc...

It doesn't matter what colour it is as long as it's cheap and reliable

My budget is from SGD$100 - SGD$300

(Just one question, what's the difference between the colours? I see prices may vary depending on the colours, like red is the cheapest?)

I'm from Singapore and hopefully i can find one here so that i don't need to have it shipped to Singapore.

Any recommendation will be appreciated, thank you for viewing my thread!

(P.S, Sorry if i posted in the wrong section)

That will only be good if you want it for burning. Red is terrible for beam visibility.
Which color is the best for beam visibility?
I noticed the price is different for different colors

Green.

I dont reccomend wicklasers/dragonlasers and those, they are overpriced. I suggest rayfoss.com or o-like.com . I really like rayfoss. For 300 you could get a pretty nifty laser.

Green is the best for visibility. Red is a lot cheaper per mw, but the visibility sucks compared to green.

How many mW is required for burning possiblity?
Is it 200mW and above?
About 100mw of well focused light will light a match or pop balloons. My X100 rated at 109mw average 139mw peak can do it.
