808nm is NOT red. It's NIR, be very careful with it.

I'm not sure exactly what you're trying to ask. What you want for these diodes is a 1.5A constant current driver.

Thanks I guess my biggest concern is that it is positive ground Im not familiar with it and don't know if the diode needs the case earth grounded or if the pins are reversed etc.

What are you going to use 2W of 808nm laser for?

case-positive simply means that the + connection is continuous with the case of the diode. This needs to be kept in mind if you are using the case of the final device as a ground or other common potential point.
