I almost made the mistake of buying an Artic here last week. Thank goodness I ordered one of your 445's instead!Recieved today. About 600mW. Also the spot is incredibly horrendous. I have gutted it completely and I plan to rebuild it with a copper heatsink and a new driver running on 3 CR123A lithiums. This thing was the worst 445nm laser I have ever owned. I expected it to suck but I didn't think it would be a gut job.
