Default Re: Lava Micro FlexDrive Driver (lavadrive2) fits

Ok, I know that the case pin doesn't do anything, but in this diagram it connects the negative contact of the battery to the negative contact on the driver, which then connects to the negative pin on the diode. I'm doing it this way because I'm putting this all inside of my brand new Sonar case 8-)
Edit:
I got it working! Yay for me.

Default Re: Lava Micro FlexDrive Driver (lavadrive2) fits

I am brand new to the hobby as well as this great forum but from all of the props given to this driver I placed my order. I hope to be in luck because I saw that the last shipment went out on the 20th so maybe I will be included in the next shipment? Either way, thanks for all the work to educate noobs like me.

you wont be disappointed in these drivers! feel free to ask questions if you need to but as with any forum make sure you search first.

DR LAVA - Have my 5 been shipped? They were ordered on the 3rd August, money charged on the 21st August....but it's still saying &quot;Not yet shipped&quot; but you're saying that they have all been shipped :S

Can you please get back to me with an update, I requested an order status on the 19th, no reply

Hi LPF
Simmiliar question as wicked1's but can i use 1W luxeon superbright LED (which came with the host) instead of 6 1N400x diodes as a dummy load to set current for PHR803t diode? Source is 3xAAA 1,5V batteries, resistance of LED at this voltage is cca 21ohm. Also, do i need the 1ohm resistor if i can use amperemeter to measure current directly? Thanks for answer

You can use a high current LED as a dummy load. It's all the same to the driver, as long as the forward voltage of the load is between 2.7-6V. I use a CREE LED to test all sorts of drivers, and i have some diodes in series with it, so that i can change the total Vf of the load, for when it does matter.. Put some kind of diffuser on the LED tho.


And you don't need the 1ohm resistor if you use the current measuring range of your DMM. The idea with the 1ohm is to measure voltage across it, because it's the same as the current through it.

You can put the DMM in between the driver and the test load, but it's safer to use a resistor soldered permanently, so you don't break the connection by accident. The driver should not be operated without a load and interrupting connections can cause the diode to die. Not that you should set the current with the diode in place.

Actually, the formula, aka &quot;Ohm's law&quot;, is I = U/R

If you use a 0.1 ohm resistor, then I = U/0.1, meaning 1mV = 10mA.. Only if you use a 1 ohm resistor does 1mV mean 1mA, because there R = 1, and U/1 = U.
