cheap ones only put out a little power.

Modding it probably wont get it up to 'burning' is only 40 bucks...and it'll pop balloons from more than 2 meters.
yeah well i live in the united states so i cant get that
Then you're not allowed to make one either now are you? Problem solved. Move out of the states.
