Default Walye D45-450nm 1W 1.4W 1.6W laser diode Q?

So I bought this and I have looked around the forums and have had no luck in figuring out what is - and what is + to hook the battery to. I know how wire the diode just not power input.

Just from looking at the pic, I'd say the + in the bottom right corner is Vin, and it's for case negative diodes, so the host/diode can would be V-.

I did some more looking into this I found this not to be the real -V area that the supplier has labeled in his auction as Gadget pointed out and I have notified the seller via ebay. Here is the real -v area as plainly marked and as Gadget stated it is indeed a case negative driver if you solder the case pin of the diode to the v- I have shown in the picture. You can also just clip the case pin on the diode and just wire it from there if you want to make it a neutral case driver unless it will be installed in a module and if it will you will probably need look below as I had alittle issue with that.



Also my board came in a different color and with a SHORT check this out I had to repair my driver to use it.




So if your buying this driver I suggest you pay attention to these things lol lol and thanks for the heads Gadget good looking out.

So I was trying to use this driver as case neutral and ran into an issue of the v+ and v- being on the wrong side of the chip and not being able to fit the wire out of the module so I went hunting for points on the other side and have found the 6 hole solder strip to be v+ on both sides and this point on the resistor to work for v- just be careful not to lift the whole resistor like I did or you will have to put it back on like I did lol



She works like a charm now and well worth the $6.64 I paid.
I also wanted to point out that the driver is alittle long for the module but does fit
