    yeah about 2-6 mW a normal laser pointer is about 5mW. Bindi you ever seen the laser unit in the physics lab at uni I think the chem department use it aswell from time to time its 25Watts bloody big dangerous thing it is!!

    The whole unit might be 25W, but the actual laser isn't. Trust me :p

    yeah thats right physics at manchester, tell me im a loser when i'm earning a crap load working at CERN :rock: krikkit im telling you now its 25W total output! well kinda... its broken down into smaller beams with different wavelengths outputing a different fraction of that 25W I think there's 8 beams in total off the top of my head
