I want a green laser with an even better beam than my 5 mW but not too powerful! (like 100 mW where it hurts and burns better) and I found two sites with them, lazerer and o-like and have found on this forum that lazerer is better. Check out these links and tell me which one is the best best to pull the trigger...

Power Rock Green laser Torch 50mW /Focusable&Waterproof [OL-MRGL50] - $34.99 : Zen Cart!, The Art of E-commerce

LZSK - 532nm 50mW Focusable Green Laser Pointer

If you want one that burns you will have to go above a 50mw.

I don't want one that burns, just an amazing beam but not too powerful so which one is better after knowing this? Or do you have another laser/website suggestion for my desires.

They are both good. It's just which ever one you like better.
And don't forget laser safety glasses.

Where do you prefer to get your lasers Giorge? If you were in my position which one would you get out of the two... Another opinion would be cool. Thanks so far as well! +1 rep

I would probably get the Power Rock from O-Like. I like looks of the host that it has.

The host is quite good looking for the O-like, and I have heard that some some of the lazerer products are a little...flimsy...

Okay... Do you think a 50 mW will have a solid bright beam at night and a pretty good one in lightly lot places? Or should I go for 100 mW because I don't want it too powerful to where it can harm me more if something happens.

Well, there are dangers with both of those pointers...50 mW is not considered 'eye-safe', nor is 100 mW. I think if you don't care for burning capability you'll be best off with a 50 mW pointer. 100 mW will sting skin, and can cause serious eye injuries. Overall, I'd say you're looking for a good, solid 50 mW :)

Awesome... Is that a good price for the o-like or where would you get a good 50 mW laser? And the beam is what it's all about! Don't care for burning really... Thanks!

Yeah, it looks fairly priced. But the batteries are different. Is recharging a big deal or is it very easy and durable?

Batteries can be a key component sometimes! If it comes with a certain battery, like I think this one does (Ultrafire, right?) You should be ok. However, never leave those batteries alone when charging, and always appropriate positive/negative sides to their corresponding spots in the charger and laser or things could go wrong. Not to scare you...just letting you know :)

It comes with lithium I think it says: 18650 lithium battery and charger, belt bag included

note :battery "+" towards tail cap ,battery "-" towards inside.

Basically, like a remote control car battery almost, you take it out after a specific time. But if I leave it on the charger too long what happens and how do I know when the battery is diminishing and needs charging. You are making my decision a lot easier man! thanks a lot

You're very welcome! I'm glad to be of assistance.
Yes it is very specific. Your laser will cease to perform the way you want it to...you'll know when it's time to recharge. Your charger will likely have a red LED indicator on it which will turn green once charged. The problem with LiIon batteries is that if you leave them on a charger for too long, they may go ka-boom.
