Id be interested but only if someone fits a driver so all i need to do is add 3V lol[/quote]
For operation from 3V it's gonna have to be a boost driver, so that leaves you with Dr_Lava's flex drive.


And if you want to start building lasers, you're gonna have to learn how to solder. When i was a kid, i used to take all my fathers electronic components, and just solder them to a vero board. He was angry, for wasting various ICs and expensive parts, but i learned how to do it.

Start with something easy, something you can't kill, so that you get a feel for it.. Tinning some wires, soldering some random stuff together, just so you learn how it behaves. After that you get the required confidence, and can do anything. Oh, with PCBs, soldering has to be done quickly so that the pads don't de-bond and break off.

After that you should build a red. Then you can do Blue Rays. Oh, and only use battery power, no PSUs. A PSU provides a path to the ground and 405nm diodes are way more sensitive to ESD![/quote]

lol I do know how to solder :P I consider my soldering reasonable
and I have built a 100mW red laser with driver.

but I would not want to build a driver for a BR Id prefer a ready built one...

what are these lava flex drives- sounds intesting

oh and I dont nececerily mena 3V I can easily supply 1.5- 12V DC no probs (battery)

I mean if I can get a 50mW blue laser for $50 then yeah im in for this!

Default Re: FS:405 BlueRay with Aixis module

Oh, i didn't know, because you said you wanted it soldered together.

Supplying 405nm diodes from a PSU is NOT a good idea. It's how i lost my first two. A PSU provides a path to the ground for ESD. I only use battery power now, and i haven't lost a diode ever since. I even made myself a simple adjustable lead battery PSU for my lasers. It can either power a driver (for testing the driver) or even act like a driver (for testing a diode safely).


FlexDrive is Dr_Lava's buck/boost driver. It can power any diode with a Vf higher than 2.4V from a voltage higher or lower than the diode needs. He is selling them for $20 and that's a good price.

I'm using a similar driver in the Blu-Ray lasers i'm selling, and i don't think i could do just the driver for $20. The components cost most of that by themselves.


If you know how to make a 317 driver, and do not mind using three Li-Ion batteries or a 9V Ni-MH, you can make yourself a >50mW Blu-Ray easily, using the diodes in the AixiZ modules from this thread..


Hydro: Why not add two wires, and an SMD cap between the diode pins? Would be safer and more attractive for some people. Otherwise, the price is good. Do the AixiZ modules have clear or AR coated lenses?

Default Re: FS:405 BlueRay with Aixis module

as I said I can easily supply anywhere from 1.5- 12 V DC from batteries

There is a driver for $5 available on the forum that can supply 37, 50 or 100mA

so what power could I use with no additional heatsink?

I would think at 37mA, I run my at 100mA with heatsink.

Look at Dr. Lava's graph:



I'd say between 70 - 85mA the diode should be fine, but if the module gets too warm then try to keep your duty cycle short or get a heatsink. :P

so are people really saying that all i need is this diode in its module for $45+ a $5 driver and some bats and i have a 50mW blue ray laser?

wow I am so tempted XD
