Anyone have repeated good experiences with ebay sellers on cheap Green 532 lasers? I think I understand why everything is advertised at 5mw but my reading here on LPF says most are putting out quite a bit more mw. Obviously I would like to get the higher outputs but I'm sure it's hit or miss. I searched on LPF for "ebay sellers" and most of the posts are 1+ years old.

Flashlight or pen format is fine. 18650 battery is preferred for flashlight body. Duty cycle doesn't really matter, 60 seconds would be fine for my use.

Thanks for any leads.

I get them on e-bay all the time and all have been 70mW to 95mW. No idea how to get a e-bay link from phone but I'll try to get it later.

90% or more of all green lasers u get from ebay are more or less overspec, usually between 40-100mW or something like that, ignore what labels usually say 5 or 10 its for sure more then that usually but there is no guarantee of course but high chances to buy overspec.

These cheaper 532's can also put out a lot of IR light. Which you cant see and can be terrible for your eyes and everyone around so be careful. And get some decent quality glasses!! Most of the cheap ebay pens will be overspec as mentioned.
Good luck on your search
