Hi Paul,
It is set to 2A and I ran it for about 90 seconds and no noticeable heat from the sink. The modules are in a 20mm CU sink already and I isolated the module in the Al Sink. Runs great nice yellow WL ..

It was my understanding that the 565nm modules were a bit greener than the 575nm ones. Many people who own both have said so. I suppose if you only have the 565nm one, it might look yellow, but side by side, it doesn't.

Then are you sure you received a 565nm. Alaskan made multiple orders for 575nm and he received a 565nm by mistake. You should see some green in it even without anything side by side.

Hi,
I just went down in the shop and put in fresh charged batteries and it is yellow . I wish I had a camera that would pick it up to show.
I lpm'ed it at 25mW and let it run for 2 mins.

If it’s yellow with no signs of green then you must have a 575nm unit instead.
565nm is close to 561nm, so it would have a lime green tint. Not as much as 561nm, but still apparent.

Hi Curtis,
Maybe so it has no hint of green I looked at for a while and it's yellow . The color is like the yellow in the Sanwu add.

Yes, it definitely sounds like you have 575nm instead. Great wavelength, shame I couldn't get one at the time.

I actually prefer the 575nm lasers over the 565nm ones because they are so very yellow with no trace of green. I could have purchased both at the time I got mine, but didn't think it would be an issue to get one later. Hindsight is 20/20 and, in retrospect, I would have purchased both if I had it to do over.

Yeah, Rich. If your laser is pure yellow, it must be one of the 575nm ones. Ten nm shorter in wavelength and you would see some green. I need to measure the output power of mine as it is higher than the 36 mW I have it posted on my signature. I have added heat sinks to the output transistor and driver IC and a fan to actively remove heat from the driver. It remains stable for 20 minutes as I had it on for that long just the other day.

Hindsight is one of those things. I would of purchased a 575/565 myself regardless of whether I could of afforded to. I just hoped these would stay available in the future.
