Exclamation 1 watt laser question

Hi, I want to know why my 1 watt LED at this intensity?

The assembly was (very carefully) and no exchange polarity I wanted to know if she died or I can make it work?

Who you get it from, what battery type, did you ever run it for a long time/ heat it up.

Do you have a multimeter?

How does the power button feel? When you shake it is anything loose?

Just a word of caution, be careful looking at the beautiful LED light as it may just be a temporary problem due to something simple like a short circuit. You don't want to be looking into it when it miraculously mends itself! If you're at a loss after trying a few of the things posted here then someone will likely be prepared to have a look at it for you. Assuming you've contacted the supplier first and had no luck there.

Thank you for your reply

More information:

LED 1 watt at modwerx
Boostdrive, Preset 800 Ma
1.2v Rechargable Battery x3

And as soon as I received the package I mount the laser, I have taken care of well isolated while the son and inspected the circuit and the switching diode dice had this intensity
I have a test load and a multimeter as tools

Thank all

I would start with the multimeter first, no need to disconnect anything, just see if the power is the same as it was first set.

Dont quote me on this or hold me too this but i think you have to discharge the boost drive before hooking up your diode or it could kill your diode.

Default Re: 1 watt laser question

you think the diode can walk again?

I have another driver 430 mA?

What I find strange is that with the test drive I could find 3 A and 13 V, but I thought my old multimeter was dead. A boostdrive which has a max of 1A Can not do 3 A? Once the diode connected and the battery after running that automatically?

Diode's cannot perform any type of locomotion autonomously, so I'd say the chances of your diode walking are quite slim. However, I would suggest lower appendages or perhaps a motorized vehicular device of some sort to assist you in your task.

How about instead of pointing out the obvious, you try help the guy.

@ Tirano01 place your multimeter on the 10A mode and measure the current between the battery contact and the host. You should find that it is extremely low. At 1.2v * 3 you are giving around 3.6v. The minimum you need is 2.5v so you could be running them dry.

I have a feeling though that you have forgotten to drain the cap on the driver before soldering on the diode. This would be the main issue with new members.

If you feel that you have done everything right in the installation of the diode. Then the next thing is to try with a different battery configuration.

I think I forgot to unload it and the slamming of a diode,

I watch the boostdrive Loan and saw that a component was to unsolder the preset I tried solves and I will test again
