So I have my first laser,the Wicked Lasers Arctic 3.5w and now without yet experiencing its full potential (only used it briefly indoors and in a small garden in the day time) I am now looking for the antithesis of this beast of a laser. I want a baby:crackup: a little cute baby laser,the smallest ever maybe. Just seen a picture of a laser ring for the hand :thinking: Power not important all as would like to use it for a cat toy and messing about indoors but want something quality,something that will last. Im based in UK but dont mind importing as long as postage is relative to (less than) the price. I absolutely love the Darth Vader light saber keyring laser pointer which only seems to be available in USA at around $15 but is likely to cost nearly that in postage for me. (my sisters boyfriend has the master replica lightsaber,that he got for FREE,lucky thing)
Any links or info to a quality tiny laser pointer or companies that may specialise or stock such things greatly appreciated.
Hers a couple of pictures of the Darth Vader laser pointer and what my sisters boyfriend has (not a laser,I know) :tsk::p
:thanks:

Note: Had the be careful not to accidentally upload a big pair of boobs. I must organise my downloads files :whistle:

Update: So ive received imo the best looking small low power red laser keyring there is (see first thumbnail) being a sci-fi fan it was an easy choice although worked out expensive as i got hit for rip off custom and postage handling fees. But its here and its a beast.......not. Has a max output of 0.42 mW Impressed? (no smileys available so winky face) What shall i do with it? Will it burn anything black? Give a noob some ideas for a low powered red laser. Like the rebel i am I held it on my skin for a bit to see if I would feel something. Seem to feel some heat after about 10 seconds. Does that sound right? How else can a noob with no equipment get a rough estimate of power? Yet to troll the local foxes who turn up in the close where I live but apart from that what else would I do with such a thing. Dont get me wrong I love it and i'm pleased to own it. But my lack of knowledge and equipment means I cant even review it. Thoughts anyone?

The fact you offered this to me is worth more to me than the laser itself. Ive seen these things on Ebay for a couple of quid with free postage it would likely cost you more in postage than it is worth. I want to thank you for the gesture of goodwill and hope you can put a smile on a kids face that you know locally. Good man. :thanks: :beer:

Vettech: A very nice gesture you made. I cannot rep you yet - spreading time.

LJM: What about Sanwu pocket series? These are pretty small and even in my rangefinder to acquire in the future.

Edit: But careful these Sanwus are not pointers - they are far above 5 mW, some are even class 4. It depends on your need if they are suitable. Definitely not for cat toy - but you still might ask Sanwu to make custom build with low power diode.

Here's a little keychain laser that I made a while ago, it's very small, but not necessarily something high quality that you'd want to use everyday.

Here's a -Link- to the build thread for this baby laser:

Is this small enough?

Thanks for the replies all. I think if I order two light saber ones then the postage justifies itself. I'll give one to my sisters boyfriend. So far they are the coolest looking small keyring lasers I have found. As for trying to build something I'll just mess it up. if something can go wrong it usually does for me. :)

I remember reading the thread about that. What was the power on it? I would think that the waste heat would burn your finger after a while.

As far as I can see it was ~850mW with a G9 at 1A into an M140. Heat became apparent after just a few seconds.
