My laser won't pop balloons.

  1. Try using brand new batteries. Do not use AA or AAA rechargeable batteries.
  2. Try marking a black spot on the side of the balloon with a sharpie or other black marker.
  3. Try using a darker colored balloon.
  4. Try blowing the balloon up further.
  5. Keep you hands steady or use a tripod to ensure a steady beam.
  6. Shorten the distance between the laser and the balloon.
  7. Use the focal lens from the Expanded Lens Kit.

Lasers with an output power of 95mW and above should pop balloons.
