Default question about the danger sticker

hello lpf,

i saw a 2 different type of danger sticker on lasers one with a green dot like this:

http://www.o-like.com/image%5C../buy...327397021b.jpg

and one with a red dot

like this:

http://207.126.60.30/catalog/photos/.../HulkUltra.jpg

bought of them are green lasers, so what is the different between them?

i heard that green dot means a fake, is this true?

thanks, matan

I don't think the color on the sticker matters.

The color means nothing, although generally the manufacturers try and match the color to the laser - again, though, I've seen stickers with a red beam that said "532nm" right on them, so really, it's just a matter of what color they feel like making the sticker.

The color of the warning sticker doesn't matter. The original laser warning label always used a red beam no matter what color the laser really is. Recently some companies have changed the beam color on the label to match the actual laser color.

What about yellow lasers? Yellow ink on a white background would be hard to read... even worse, the 7-color white lasers!! LOL Okay, they could just make the background black, but I just know somewhere, someone will make a "fail" label eventually...
