Default Need opinion on drivers

I am thinking of buying two 1w drivers from ebay for my 2w blue laser but I can't measure the output so do you think it would be okay to use or would it harm the diode in any way?

Just making sure but this can be used on a 445nm laser correct? If you know can you tell me the exact output in mw? This really helped thanks

I don't know what output you'll get, depends from your diode and lens.
With a M140 diode you'll get 1.6-2W with 3 element Glass Lens and 1.8-~2.3watt with G1/G2 Glass Lens.
