It is NOT the same sled as the one out of my Pioneer BDR-203BK.

Also the diode is probably not the same one. The diode in my BK had a small square bar code on the back and nothing on the can. This one has nothing on the back and an alpha/numeric code burned into the side of the can.

This is one of the reasons we need a few more people to test one. Sometimes (especially at the beginning and ending of a manufacturing run) parts are "swapped" out. Remember the PHR-803T vs, DT-0811 challenge. We are getting a pretty good picture of the diode in the BDR-203BK, but this one is new. One test is not enough to know the validity of that test nor the consistency of the diodes used in the sleds.

Peace,
dave

Peace,
dave

No I don't believe so. At least not the one Dave bought a while ago, that one was a BDR-203BK sled.

The S and 2 are different. There are 3 variations of these BDR's that I know of. BDR-S03, BDR-203, and BDR-203BK. Not sure of the differences or the diodes being the same or not.

This is already public info on my site so I'll just tell ya, I have about 36 sleds left so far. I know someone was asking me about buying 10-20 sleds though so my stock could drop quickly.

lol yeah one of the first things i did was go to the site and look at the "units in stock"

anyways, what i meant was if it's the same sled used in these drives.

Blu-ray burner, Pioneer Blu-Ray Burner BDR-S03-OEM 8x BD-R Burner
cause on that site it's labeled Pioneer 8x Blu-ray Burner BDR-S03-OEM - SATA Interface

same as the sleds (bdr-s03)

What kind of voltages do you need to drive one of these with a FlexDrive? I know you mentioned that 12V is recommended for a rkcstr, but FlexDrive can't handle more than 5.5V. Would a standard 3.7V 14500 suffice?

And is there any thoughts on the "optimal" current for these? Seems like they can handle like 350mA no problem.

The Flexdrive won't be able to power one of these, at least not at the high powers. I heard DrLava is making another design to power 8x and 12x burners with higher voltages / currents, this is just a guess though.

No, a 3.7V would not suffice.

Optimal current is not really known yet. I'd go with 300mA to be safe though.

thanks,
Kendall

I see. Well, that works out better, then, because the rkcstr's cheaper. Hehe....

I ran my 8x diode at 400mA on a flex drive powered by one 18650. Worked great for me but I think 400mA is not a safe current because The diode emitted light started to get dark spots. 350mA is the what I will set my next 8x diode at. The diode I was using was not the same as this one though. Here are the test results: 441mw - 8X Panasonic BR

Actually yes, a 3.6 (4.2 at full charge) rechargeable battery with a FlexDrive is fine with an 8X up to about 6 volts per Dr. Lava.

With the BDR-203 diodes, they hit 6 volts at around 300mA's. If these new diodes stay below 6 volts, a FlexDrive can go higher.

Sportcoupe is using 360mA's with a CR123/FlexDrive/BDR-203 and the driver is holding!

Default Re: FS: 8x BDR-S03 Sleds $103.50

The diode from the "BK" sled needed 6.2V at 350mA. The flexdrive could not deliver THAT voltage at that current.

However, the diode from this "S" sled only needs 5.7V at 350mA.

The "BK" diode only needed 6V at 300mA. Drlava said that the flexdrive WOULD handle 6V at 300 mA.

It is possible then, that the flexdrive will handle 5.7V at 350mA. Which is what this one needs. Someone should ask Drlava about it. I am leaving so will not get to check posting regularly enough for me to do it.

Peace,
dave
