Yep...3.6 volt batteries are a necessity. I have built at least 8 open can lasers, and I have never got more than 250mW's @ 420mA's with an acrylic lens. Gazoo has a diode that is HOTTER than normal. And Kenom has a video of an open can in one of his barrels showing over 330mW's with an acrylic lens?? This is at 425mA's.

Very unusual diode if you ask me. Wish I could find one like that!

im using a glass lens. at 416mA, it should be putting out at least 280mW, wich leads me to believe the resistor that came with the MXDL is a little more than 3 ohms.

lol, I have a HOT IR diode, all the other ones everyone else gets, and I get, (the same diode from pioneer drive) die out at 200mA. mine is running fine at 250mA, and the driver is running on 2 14500's. its a 160mW IR. preety dang awesome!! lol, I hope I get a HOT open can one day...

amk, is it an AixiZ glass lens? Or, a Meredith glass lens. I tested the two of them, and the Meredith was at least 40mW more power at 420mA's. The AixiZ glass lens was only 1mW more than an acrylic. But, I don't know if it is a flawed AixiZ glass lens that I have, or what...

lol, for some reason, there are like 5 helicopters (all with those huge spotlights), a few airplanes (jets I believe), and a lot of sirens going off near my house (police car sirens). the helicopters and airplanes keep flying over and by my house :-/ ....

not a good day to film my beam shots i guess... I did so anyways...]

I think the jets have something to do with that blue angels show (ur in NC, you should know about that)...


sorry for OT

Thanks

I sent it out on Monday, 3/10/08. I'm sure it will show up. It's probably just a slow trip from No. CA, U.S., all the way to England. I would have guessed it would have been there by now. Sometimes the mail system has a little glitch. Not sure if customs slows it down or what. But I do have to fill out a customs slip when I send one out of the country. Keep me informed...

Got it today and it looks great. I especially like the tis sheet included- it really clear up any grey areas and thx for the resistor. I can say that Jayrob has been a joy to trade with and has kept in contact with me throughout the selling process -- NICE ONE

thanks again

Glad to here it! Thanks for those kind words.

LarryQ, your blu-ray heatsink is done! It will be in the mail tomorrow. Please let me know how you like it...

I bet that someone has posted info or even pics on removing diodes from DVD burners. But where? <g> I picked up the Sony, as recommended in this thread. Don't want to complicate things if the process is already outlined. I do have access to a large hammer and acetylene torch if necessary. <g>

Lol!...You are just kidding right? That Sony Optiarc harvest is very easy. You should be able to use a tiny screwdriver to carefully pry the diode out...no hammer's or torches!

Lol!...You are just kidding right? That Sony Optiarc harvest is very easy. You should be able to use a tiny screwdriver to carefully pry the diode out...no hammer's or torches!

taking your frustrations out on a diode is a different story....

I like to use a 50lb Sledge hammer...

Your going to like that blu-ray host amk. Post a picture when you get it together. Tip: test the voltage of the battery pack before you install it into the MXDL. I had to make sure one of the connections was touching one of the battery positives on one of mine...
Jay

P.S. I bought another AixiZ glass lens direct from AixiZ. Tested it and it gave me only 8mW more than an acrylic??
