Default oh my god, my m140 diode worked for 40 mn

when I took it from my bag yesterday, it was on and the batteries were fully decharged. It was in a holster and the tailcap was on the lens. this m140 diode runs with a 1.8A driver, the copper heatsink is from survival laser, and two 18350 batteries .
the calculation I made is: 1200mah/1800ma=0.66 which is 40mn with the decrease of the current.
I'm afraid the diode didn't like it
what do you think?
the lifetime must be now less than before.

Well, what type of batteries were they? If they weren't quality batteries, then you probably don't actually have a 1.2Ah capacity. Secondly, what type of driver is it? Because they could easily run out of juice enough to power the laser but still have some juice left over for lower voltage applications.

the batteries are some crappies ultrafire and the driver is a mohgasm lineare driver.
The tailcap which is on the lens to protect it was burnt.

Default Re: oh my god, my m140 diode worked for 40 mn

So, I don't understand...Did you try freshly charged batteries yet w/ no luck? Is it LED'd? Haven't even tried anything yet?

I was just reading about someone who accidently left their 445 on in their pocket w/ a lens cap on. It cooked the inside of the cap and overheated the diode, aka LED'd.

Good luck to you.

I had enountered the same situation several times with my 532nm. It was in my pocket and it was so frigging hot when I pulled it out It happened thrice I think and I am just lucky it didn't burn out.

Recharge the batteries and put it back in the laser. Hopefully it works as normal again.
I have done it once with my laser and it survives 30minutes with the cap on.

My 1.25A 445nm has survived 30min runtime.

You might want to be sure that there aren't any pieces, or residue from the melted lens protector on the lens before you try it out.
I had a similar accident happen. I got lucky, no apparent damage, but a lot of crap on the lens.

Good luck!

hey
done: batteries fully charged and lens cleaned ,it works fine.
I was lucky the crappy ultrafire batteries were not fully charged and the cap on is " blue glow in the dark".
the life of the diode must be shorter now.

Default Re: oh my god, my m140 diode worked for 40 mn

With any luck your driver may have protected your diode. Good buck drivers will limit current when they overheat so its possible that your diode was running at a much lower current after some time. Since you are estimating the runtime based on the capacity of the cells its possible the laser ran for far longer but at a reduced current.

I actually plan to do a test similar to this situation with one of my drivers. I will hook it up to my bench power supply and then to a 3A test load(actively cooled) and run the thing for a half hour or more and monitor the current output by the driver as it heats up. I may very well blow the driver but it may provide a good idea on how well it can protect my lasers. I would like to set the test up so that I can take pictures at intervals to record the input and output currents.

Default Re: oh my god, my m140 diode worked for 40 mn

I'm glad to hear your diode lived through this experience. It's fortunately not one I've gone through yet. I imagine with the way we all play with (semi-abuse) our diodes, you or I wouldn't notice the difference in lifespan....one can hope anyway.
