  • Good Green Laserpointer

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    -Very bright. I'm no expert, but brighter than common "5mw green" pointers! I would estimate more like 30-50mW.
    -Very well machined housing, aluminum.
    -Does work with AA Batterys! Even comes with a set of AA's

    Cons:

    -Button Switch is a bit flimsy, but does the job
    -Slight shaking of batteries inside, but doesn't affect function.
    -Doesn't have an IR filter. I think it emitts quite a lot of IR (tested it with Digital Camera), but the IR isn't as focused as the laser, so it's not that dangerous. Nevertheless, a filter would have been nice.

    OtherThoughts:

    -Slightly visible beam at daylight. Spot is always extremely Bright.
    -Solid very bright beam in the night! Didn't measure the distance it covers, but no problem to point at clouds /stars. VERY BRIGHT!
    -Lights Matches after ~0.5-1 exposure! Didn't try to pop baloons, but should be no problem.
    -Shipping to Germany was no problem.

    Bottomline:

    Very bright Laser. Must buy for the price! But pay attention. This is not a toy!
