Hey!
I bought this laser (532nm green) u can get it in alot of colors
Neu Grün Lila Rot Laser Pointer Stift Strahl Stern Zeiger Pen Beam Präsentation | eBay

The package came with just 1 laser and a single charger without any wallplug

It arrived at my house after 15 days.


Here is my results for my test of it (Got no pics)


Durability

I dropped it once from 1 meter and it didnt break but the laser diode can get toasted if you run around and have it turned on for a while.
My laser broke because i used it alot in a short period of time

The casing was made out of aluminium.


Laser

The beam becomes visible in daylight when the sun begins to go down.
In sunlight it is bright and the laser is very visible too
You can see the laser far away even in day light.

The laser cant burn stuff and does not hurt if you shine it at your skin.
It said on its warning sticker that is was 5mw but i do not trust that.

This is my first ever review so its pretty bad but hope you enjoy! :)

Thanks for the review. Those cheap ebay specials are a decent intro to the hobby, but they should ultimately serve as a stepping stone to something better.
