I'm having a hard time figuring out what mid-open means: 100mW 532nm Mid-open Star Projector Green Laser Pointer Pen : GadgetTown.com

Also, since its a star projector pen, do you think I could just take the end off and have the beam?

One more, which of these lasers do you think I should get?
Buy 50mW 532nm Mid-open Green Laser Pointer Pen at GadgetTown.com (the URL isn't the same as the pen... Hmm.)

100mW 532nm Mid-open Star Projector Green Laser Pointer Pen : GadgetTown.com

Buy 50mW 532nm High Power Green Laser Flashlight at GadgetTown.com What does flashlight mean when it comes to this? Does that mean it has a big beam? Or that it has a flashlight on the other end?

Thanks for the help in advance. :)

it means it opens for batteries in the middle.

AFAIK you can unscrew those caps for a regular beam.

And for which laser to get, go to the reviews section or do a search.

Hate to break it to you, but that laser won't be 100 mW. At that price, I would be surprised if it even pulls an average of 50 mW.

Next time buy from Rayfoss or O-like, whose prices are still cheap but have much better quality. Or spend a little more and buy from Optotronics.

Just because they advertise here means nothing. They pay for ad space, not posts. If they were reputable they would be on the list.

I didn't say they were good OR bad, I just said they weren't on the list.

What he is saying is that if they were worth buying from, they would be on the list.

A good tell is if the site sells other things besides lasers, the lasers are probably crap.
