Default What's the best way to power this baby?

Hi guys, I made a 405nm build using this diode: BDR-S06J 10x 405nm Sled Containing 400mW+ Diode - Detailed item view - OdicForce Lasers Online Shop and I want to ask what is the best combination of driver and batteries to get the best out of it?

I did use one crappy driver, but I fucked it, so now I need something decent.

I was using 3xAAA rechargeable batteries, but very crappy ones, so diode drains them as I drain a bottle of JD

If you have any schematics for driver I will do it myself, I just could find anything on the forum (maybe I didn't dig enough). And with the batteries - 1x 18650 or 2? I mean 3.7V or 7.2(4)V?

You can use a MicroBoost or MicroFlex (back in stock soon).
Or you can use one of the many versions of linear drivers that are floating around.

Is it possible for you if you can give me a link with anything particular or schematic for something good with the parts required. :P

Not to be Rude, but there are quite a few Schematics on here using LM317 type regulators. Try searching a bit more as They are not hard to dig up.

Sorry, I know I should put more effort, but if you have something on your hand, thanks :P

The problem with new members is they think this Forum
community is their Mommy...

Just do a little research reading like all of us have done
and your questions will be answered...
If you can't find answer to a difficult question... then
ask...
