Default Re: RCKSTR V3 on a 9V battery

I'M sure this is the wrong thread, but I'm using a rkcstr v3. Not a flexdrive, just curious why a 9v is bad.

It is the wrong thread, but . . .

The standard 9V battery is a stack of AAAA size batteries connected to give the total 9V. The AAAA sized cells have very little capacity for current. Laser diodes need more current than the 9V battery can give effectively. It will work, just not for very long or (maybe) not up to the needed current for full output.

Peace,
