Hi. I am planning on buying this bad boy pretty soon: Survival Laser I 445nm Parts Bundle - Laser Components Only. I was wondering if you guys think the copper heat sink is worth it or should I just get the Aluminum. What would be the benefits if I chose the copper heat sink over the aluminum?

Thanks

Copper would just allow you longer run-times and stuff, since it has higher thermal conductivity.

Its really up to you, perhaps you find the anodized aluminum has nicer looks or so.

I do.
