    Red Oclaro 700mW Dimmed @ 1.25A boost

    I mean I use that for all the blue ones I make, but I may be wrong, but a couple years ago someone told me that red lasers should be running on 1 battery, not 2, thats what made me buy the boost driver. I have been looking around, and now I see that I can run both 2W blue m140 and the Oclaro...

    Red Oclaro 700mW Dimmed @ 1.25A boost

    Thanks guys, I came back to making lasers after 2years and dug up my old supplies I had. Since you bought same diode, mind sharing which driver you are using? since the boost provides higher voltage, would you use a buck driver with 2 3.7V batteries?

    Red Oclaro 700mW Dimmed @ 1.25A boost

    oh now I understand, since both the diodes get really dim I guess diodes are gone. I was under the impression for red lasers a boost driver is needed, this is my first time making red lasers. Now since my diodes are done, Can I run a m140 on 1.25A boost? I usually use regular non-boost for m140...

    Red Oclaro 700mW Dimmed @ 1.25A boost

    Hi, I bought 2 Oclaro 700mW diodes off ebay I put them in a 1.25A boost driver host. Both the times I made them (2 diff lasers) both times the laser turns on bright but then dims to very low. I dont know what I am doing wrong, I purchased JAD kit from well known member, so all I can go wrong is...

    1 watt green laser for sale

    It would be great if you offered a LPM reading, either by you or original seller, to help determine type of diode, or at least amount of power. A beamshot would be nice too. Considering the more expensive diode was used, $261 for module with 3E lens, last time I purchased from budget beams...

    M140 Laser Very Dim Help

    I will keep that in mind, and use the blue static protection thing (sorry for my improper terminology I don't have too much knowledge in this as I am a boomed student) I guess I can't do much now since the dim part means the diode is gone, just kind of shocked it happened twice in a row, and I...

    M140 Laser Very Dim Help

    sadly thats what I think too, but I am not sure why that has happened, that too for two diodes in a row, and 3rd one was very dim, getting me around 900mW peak on a fake g2 lens. I am using the exact same equipment and leads solder and paste as the 3 I made last year which worked perfectly fine...

    M140 Laser Very Dim Help

    I will try getting a beamshot, but last time I tried nothing is projected onto the wall as its very dim. So I tried the floor which was closer. As far as my own diagnostic goes it seems like something is wrong with the diode, because I have tried the driver on another diode (9mm) and it is...

    M140 Laser Very Dim Help

    For static electricity, I did not use the blue thing that goes on your wrist as the diode was already pressed into module, I thought that is used when dealing with bare diodes. I do not have a PSU nor a test load, as for the driver however I cut the leads from the m140 which was very dim, and...

    M140 Laser Very Dim Help

    Hello, I just built a m140 c6 kit, and powered it up and it was very dim, using 1.8A X-drive round driver I made 3 lasers 2/3 had the same issue. So I took the laser out of the host, and tested the parts individually as well and same issue for the dim diode. I took the diode off connected it to...

    Canadian restrictions on portable lasers (Official info release from Laserglow)

    Some situations that I came across, bought a 300mW or so green laser, it came to me without a label, the label was hidden under the foam in the case, seller told me to put it on myself. Bought 1W blue laser, in aluminum case with glasses and charger, didn't really make it to me, told seller...
