Laser pointer

Hi all,

I'm looking for recommendations for a good laser pointer that is bright (for open habitats in Africa) and long-lasting. I understand most are cheap and fall apart quickly.

I bought this, it's excellent and not at all flimsy, very powerfull, you can even see it in daylight to a degree. The silver cap on the end is a difuser and has to be unscrewed to produce a regular, single beam.

I lost the first one I bought in Venezuela but went straight out and bought another

One thing to be aware of is that this does exceed to the legal power limit in some countries, it could be confiscated at border control or even seized in the post en-route but I haven't had any issues so far touch wood!
