I have a coherent vmb2.3-15L 10.5 mw 635 nm laser with no power source. Does anyone know a power supply or battery that would work for this?

The closest thing on their site I could find was a vmb2.3-4L

Looks like they are 5VDC. So anything 5VDC at more than a few 10s of mA should work.

Will a 5 volt li ion battery work or do I need a special power source.

Anything that's 5VDC (datasheet recommends 5V, says 5-10V is acceptable) and can provide a few 10s of mA for however long you need to run it should work. Don't see it needing more than 100mA at 5VDC.
