So, my second review on here.

Let me begin with o-like itself. I ordered it saturday morning and she shipped it the upcoming monday. faster then any other webshop so far :D
In this review i will show some photos including a small story with it.

1. Build Quality and the outside.

Its solid, double as big as a pen host, and feel nice and as quality. there is no sticker or whatever paint on the whole thing. The lock is gray, but everything else is black.

2. Lens.

The lens is a nice pro of the laser. it focusses slowly so you can easily get to the perfect focus to burn something from a distance. You cant accedently screw it off, that can be a pro or con. And when you screw it all the way down like on the picture, its focussed to the smallest dot size possible, so no screwing till you get it perfectly. easyness is really a pro.

3. Lock and battery closure.

some lasers have a savety lock, this one is my first. i dont really like it since i already got a lockale case, so for me its a con, but not such a big one. the key firts well and turns easy. not easily to be broken or something. Got 2 colors to show if it is locked(red) or ready to be turned on(green). you can remove the key if you put it on green so that softens my con of the lock alot :)
The battery closure wont fit protected batteries completly. this is a con.

4. Output.

Well, there is a con of this laser. i expected it to have a IR filter, but it puts out a fair load of IR unfortunatly. see this image. i cant talk in numbers. but i made that photo through my savety glasses. the dot the most down of the image is from the o-like laser. and the dot just above that, is from my priceangels 50mw star pointer, wich doesnt put out green at all.(think its a broken crystal or something). and i guess that 50mw is overrated as well.
But it outputs green enough.
Here is a graph showing output, without IR filters:

This graph is made by susie wich is the boss of o-like. I think its trustable because compared with other green lasers i have, it has a trustable 200mw output.

And finally two beamshots with some fog in the room:)

How do you know about that it doesnt have an IR filter?

Maybe you just have goggles which lower the output to 2-3mW.

There are two types of goggles, the one absorbing the light and the one reflecting the light.

yes they lower the output. well i say that because the dots on that photo look exactly indentical in colors. my iphone made that photo and also photographed the green laser from priceangels without goggles. it was also a clearly dot and was also desame color as the one on the photo above. so it must be the IR dot right?
