Default Replacing the diode on an NIR laser

I have the 1 Watt NIR laser from Lazerer and was wondering if it would be possible to replace the diode on it with another wavelength such as 405nm or 445nm. I bought the NIR laser a few months ago and found that it is kind of pointless.

Default Re: Replacing the diode on an NIR laser

No, the forward voltage is much higher. The driver probably can't handle it. Sell it instead.

Maybe a new 635 diode. I would pop out the driver and see what it can do.

Default Re: Replacing the diode on an NIR laser

635 is a nice color. the divergence sucks if you go for one of the newer mitsubishi diodes though. 660 is harder to see the beam at lower powers.

Default Re: Replacing the diode on an NIR laser

Where would be a good place to get a plain diode for a 300mW+ 635 or 660 nm laser?

635 has a low forward voltage around 2.3 it might work.

Default Re: Replacing the diode on an NIR laser

Yeah it's an 808. I think there's a faint red light emitting from it, but the glasses make it hard to see. The focus ring is somehow stuck on the front of the laser. Right now it only burns things a couple inches away.
