Need help identifying these pretty generic lasers.

Bought both off Craigslist.

Both are green 532nm.

The smaller one is advertised as 50mw (probably closer to 5mw)

The bigger one is advertised as 300mw (probably closer to 30mw)

What fun can I have with them, etc.?

Thanks.

You can't have any fun with them until you buy some safety glasses, especially the one on the right.
Where that one came from is anyone's guess. That is a very common host I have seen being sold all over
the place under many different Chinese "brands". The other one well I'm not sure. Maybe one of the other
guys knows. That one is a little more rare and has a much better chance of being identified.

Once you get some LSGs, you can try things like focusing, lighting matches, and popping balloons.
Up until then, don't look directly at the dot, especially from the big one, unless it's pretty far away. Also
be careful about reflections. Anything shiny, even windows or floors, can be very bad. Stay the hell
away from mirrors! Anything made of glass or clear plastic

Generic Chinese. Could be made by any no-name company.

The bigger one is claimed to be able to burn things. It has a small black piece at the end, when you take the big, spikey silver attachment off, that seems to focus it a bit. It just puts out a big green blob when you take it off. How do you focus it to get hot? Or can that even really be done with that laser?
