good luck and remember to discharge your capacitors before hooking you diode up.

Short both pads of the driver (where you connect the diode) with a piece of wire.

But don't forget to disconnect the battery first.
Else you will kill the driver...

Set the driver with the dummy load, disconnect the battery and dummy load, short out the caps, attach diode, have fun with your laser (after placing it in a heatsink).

Oh you are you getting that driver preset?

Because you need what's called a dummy load to set the current on your driver. You also need a multimeter.

By what I remember, Rkcstr sells some.

Yeah the driver is preset to 110mA based on Prototype's suggestion for the PHR-803T

Ok then all you have to do is short out the caps, and connect the diode.

Okay. I'll have to look when I get it, but the flexdrive fits into the host flat. Do I just connect it with a wire then?

Yes, solder to wires to diode, and after shorting the caps, connect those to the driver.
