Just wondering if anyone likes to use, collect or make lasers and torchs.

I had a 200mw green laser (Lost)
I had 2 30mw green lasers - one taken off me by the airport another by the police - don't ask but no I was not doing ANYTHING irresponsible as that would make people want to make these lasers illegal.

I had 2 50mw lasers - one I gave as a present and I have the other.
I have a 200mw one but I reckon it only puts out 75mw- 100mw. Not a good burner though.


Torches
I have an LED lenser P5 (I think) - Good torch - not worth what I paid for it though and comes with a built in magnifier. I think it is 250 lumens, not sure.

I have a Solarforce L2 infrared version for NVG's and I am getting a drop in unit for it shine normal light too as well as a magnifier. I don't know the lumens cause it's infrared but with a drop in for normal light it would be 520.

I have a Surefire torch which uses an r2 drop in unit. I have it in natural light but I also have an IR drop in too. - 520 lumens. I have a convex lens for it too so I get about 500ft with it on water - maybe 700.

Lastly - I don't have it yet but I am getting a surefire torch with an output of either 900 lumens or 1100 lumens and an infrared drop in and magnifier for it.

Just wondering if anyone else likes these sort of things. Oh and all those lumen figures are never true (I was just copying what the manufacturer said) I'd say subtract 100-200 and you have your figure.

I got most of mine from dealextreme. They are never as powerful as they say they are but still pretty powerful.

Other places are :
dealcool
focalprice
Priceangels-some of the best prices here.
Ebay - I buy a lot from ebay but TBH I wouldn't trust their cheap lasers, only the more expensive ones.

They are all china lasers so don't have a great lifetime. What I would recommend is buying from a better known place such as wicked lasers (You'll find much cheaper quality places though)
and spend a good bit on one 100mw laser that WILL actually be 100mw and last you years. 100MW is all you need really. you can see the beam on a 20mw easy like and a true 100mw will light matches.

I Bought a 10mw green laser off eBay and it's a absolute blast. It shines brightly up to two miles and is built to last. I've always wanted a 100 mw or higher off dragon lasers I just can't afford it.

You should try the 50mw, they can pop balloons and stuff.

for me it was (Obsessions) -thomas the tank engine - history- roman times, then medieval times, then dragons (Very short time) then tall ships eg 40 gun brigantine or a 102 gun man o war with 42pounders, then actual sailing, then lasers- kinda - and now my most recent obsession of three years is airsoft. lol
