How much of the rating on WL is the Green wave length?

How much IR and other non green gets passed?

Let's say the 55 and the 95 mw examples?

IIRC, WL have good IR filtering, perhaps 5% IR (I think it's less than that even)? This is a question to ask on lasercommunity, where 90% of the memevers have WL products. (I think Roadrunner on LC posted a ncie comparison between his labby, nexus, and ebayser showing the IR content)

I believe RR was figuring around 1-3% on the WL pointers, which is pretty in line with most of the truly filtered pen-size lasers. The WLs are what we would normally just call "filtered" lasers as the residual IR is too minute to worry about on a pen-laser.
