Small, powerful and cheap – 6mm 5mW Red Laser Module (3.5~4.5V) Reviews

Pros:
Got this just to see how good a 1.5$ laser module can be.
And I have to say, it is very impressive.
It's bright enough to be seen easily in daylight, the dot is pretty small and smooth, and it stays really cool, no heating up at all.
Cons:
The laser was just a tiny bit off inside, so you have to check it and rotate if you need it to go straight.
Other:
Its now sitting under my air pistol, working as a laser sight.
The small angle the light comes from was perfect for this, as I found out that if I rotated it so it was upwards, it pointed exactly where my gun hit.
Bottomline:
Don' expect it to be perfect, it still is just a 1.5$ laser module.
But it is really, really good for such a cheap thing :)
