The pointer came with batteries installed - but luckily the + (towards the rear!) was blocked by a piece of plastic, so it should not get activated during the transport. I would have preferred the batteries OUTSIDE the pointer for obvious reasons.
No instruchtions, no markings how the batteries should be placed (minus towards the aperture, plus towards the rear), so once you take the batteries out, remember the direction - and write a + mark into the back cap.
The "gift box" is essentially a paper box and was almost squashed during the transport. Since you cannot reliably place the pointer in it so that the button cannot be activated unintentionally when preassure is applied to the thin box cover - take the batteries OUT before you place the stick into the box.
The beam is BRIGHT and the beam profile is clean and round. Colimation is subpar and it is fixed focus, but hey, it's not a scientific tool. You are not goint to do quantum encryption with it.
It does the intended job.
