1mW vs 5mW

I’m assuming the higher the number the better the laser pointer?

Also the higher the number the more dangerous the Burning capability?

But does the higher number also mean The longer distance that the receiving end would see the laser pointer?

For example : if I turn on a laser pointer and point straight up to the sky will it travels 10 miles 30 miles 50 miles before the laser beam gets distorted

Build your own. Not illegal to own a billion watt ( if you could fit it in a handheld) handheld in the usa. It is however illegal to use them irresponsibly. It is also illegal to import them with a sticker not showing their true class. One of the things I like about the more shady china and russia sellers online. they label a 500mw as a >1mw and sell it to you for a few more bucks than a cat toy laser. lol. Great source of cheap diodes when ya buy in bulk. Building your own is actually really easy, I suggest trying that. That way you get the color, the power, and the spot you want.
