    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Easy to use/setup, can be focused, very bright, some burning ability. Great for doing F/X, general experimentation, astronomy.

    Cons:

    As everyone says, wires come off easy, but easy fix in 2 seconds with a small soldering iron. Be prepared to do this right away.

    OtherThoughts:

    I set this up with DX #103845 2xAA battery holder using NiMH batteries and also with a variable line fed supply @ 3VDC. This can burn through electrical tape (slow), pop black balloons and light matches. It is on the low end power wise for any of this but doable. Even with 2xAA NiMH being a bit undervoltage it produces nice visible beam in all but direct sun or super bright light. Definitely not a toy, even looking at the dot on white wall can hurt eyes. Use with common sense and safety precautions.

    Bottomline:

    If you understand laser safety and basic electronics this is a great buy. It's a heck of a step up from 5mW laser pointer "toys". Safe to operate if you use common sense. I should have ordered 3pc instead of 1pc!
