Default Spyder 3 Wicked host Laser diode Module advice?

I have a broken Spyder 3 from Wicked lasers. The laser diode is broken and I would like some advice on what I could fit to it easily that's powerful.

Are there any cheap 2W blue modules I could fit to it, or any impressive green modules anyone could advise me on? (obviously not as powerful as the cost of the green diodes are quite high) But just as, if not more impressive to see at night than the original blue diode.

The easier to fit the better. As I was stupid enough to break the original diode by fiddling around with it. I'm quite a noob when it comes to electronics.

I need something that I could pop in with all the electronics included, rather than mess about with drivers and loads of soldering etc.

Just something that I could slide in or pack into place and only have to worry really about soldering the power cables to the battery compartment. If this is possible.

If not, is there any advice on the easiest mod I could do to this laser?

I'm sorry for being a pain.

I would gather you broke off one of the pins. How about a pic that shows some details of what you mean when you say you broke it "fiddling around"

The Improved and the Greatly Improved Arctic Mod

Unfortunately, this mod requires parts from the Arctic to do
I cannot just send a "drop in" module

Peace,
