Default Re: O-like 1W 445nm Driver

There were some pics posted by another member, can't find the thread right now, but...
Basically, the spring is negative (so your battery will be 'backwards') and at the top of the driver, you will see 2 contacts on one side and 1 on the other side. The 2 contact side is labeled neg (-) and pos (+) for the diode. The other side with only 1 contact is the battery pos (+). If you haven't already found this, I hope this helps.

Check out the link in my signature to a tutorial. I have some pictures of the connected driver (if we are talking about same driver :P ) hope those help.

so from what i'm getting from your tutorial there's 2 battery + connections and you can use either of them, one on the opposite side as the diode connections, and one in the middle thats in between the spring?

The contact by the spring is really difficult to get to, and having the wire coming out the spring like that may not be best since that's where the battery goes. I suggest using the contact at the top by the diode contacts. MUCH easier to get to for soldering. Also just fyi and to save heartache of a dead diode... you can't "ground" the driver to a (+) host unless the LD is insulated from the host somehow (the LD is (-) grounded to the host).

Those would have been helpful when I first got mine. haha

For everyone else, those diagrams clear up ANY confusion.
