Where would one get a 2W 445 diode?

It's just a regular 1W rated 445nm diode, overdriven.

Ah, I see. how many amps? Because mine probably died before it hit 2A, which is not exactly 2W yet.

But since you're here, how high can you drive the 445s? is 1.5 A still safe?

It's odd, people have gotten differing results, 1.5A is kind of high but not impossible I don't think.

Ah okay. My initial plan was to drive the diode at 1.5A max, but after I killed my diode by accident, I'm not sure its such a good current to be driving it at lol. I don't have laser wattage measuring equipment but, basically I just wanted to drive it enough to exceed 1W instead of just hanging just under 1W.

Sorry, I think I hijacked the thread. maybeI should start one.

A few people have been using 2 flexdrive V5's driven at 900a each with a g1-405 lens to get 2W(like the one I just bought)

The problem with running a flex at 1.5a is not that the diode gets hot...but the Flexdrive gets to hot, and usually users do not heatsink the driver.

A flexdrive v5 driven at 1.5a should have a very short duty cycle.

Plus you may not want to use a A-130 if your going to try and get to that intensity.

if your not building a portable, or happy with a box portable, a flexmod P3 will happily supply enough current to power 2 of these diodes. Put them in a box, combine them with a PBS and you could safely have 3 watts of beam, more if you push the diodes.

The hard part for us laser show types is finding enough red. Blue and green are fairly cheap to get... red, at a decent wavelength and beam profile, not so easy :P
