Default Broken 200mW driver... NEED HELP

hey, i am new here so if i get some things wrong dont judge me
anyways, i bought a 200mW laser module off DX.com and i mounted it in a housing that was powered by 2 AAA batteries. the laser worked fine, but i wanted to up the power because it wasnt set at 200mW. i took it out of the housing and tried turning the Potentiometer but it broke in half :O i can solder very well, but i have no idea on how many ohms the pot was, so i was wondering if i can just solder a replacement pot on, which would be relatively cheap, or do i have to buy a new driver? and if i had to buy a new driver what one should i get that would be compatible with the laser module that i bought?
(DX.COM 200mW green 3V)
Thanks for reading

First of all welcome to LPF.
Glad to have you with us .
However, this isn't the right place to post threads about repairs .
Maybe you'll find more help at the Tutorial ,Help and Repairs section?
