look up rckstr or jib driver for linear.
or microboost and flexdrive for boost drivers. (they are more expensive)

i don't think you can use a microboost with a red.... but the flex drive or any linear drive will work.

to decide if you want a boost type or linear type think about what battery configuration your host uses.

if you can only get 1 AA or AAA in then you need a boost driver... if you can fit 3 aa or aaa then you can use a boost also.... in that same aa or aaa host you can also use a linear driver but you will need to use fully charged 3.7v lilthum ion rechargable batteries.

Any reason why you can't use a microboost with a red? Just for clarification.

i believe the laser diode would need to be isolated from the host. so you can use it, but it's a nuisance.
