Default Re: DVD Burner LED instead of LD??!?!?

Most likely, yes ....it has been said MILLIONS of times on here that AA batts will KILL the diodes...I have no idea why folks continue to try it

If you are ONLY testing the output - use 2 AAA batts...only for abrief ammount of time. If you are using acircuit that is regulated, it is MUCH safer !

SLOW DOWN ---- READ --- Don't use aa cells without limiting !!! Don't use 3 aaa cells without limiting. Don't push them without a module for heatsinking.
Wait for the right stuff and follow the posts here or you will have a crap LED

Science doesn't happen overnight here. Do it right the first time.

i only used the AA for like 4-10 seconds at a time. it got way to hot to hold after that anyway. oh well. better luck *and carefullness* on the second diode i hope

::sigh:: nanoseconds of too much current can kill a LD. :'( AAs WILL supply too much current in many situations. Listen to Mike, and read the board.
