    Maximize Nubm44 or any diode beam concentration

    Hey guys i m playing for almost a month with my Nubm44 laser but i m annoyed with my beam concentration from the very first moment... Seems like the furthest the beam goes the wider it gets... What kind of optics should i use to maximize the concentration of that beam? Atm i think my lens is...

    New custom host NUBM44 build!

    Hey guys this is my new custom host and a NUBM44 inside! I used my Astral superdrive v inside on full current, about 4.8A and i attached a small heatsink on the ic... I have an issue though: After 6-7s the diode starts blinking... So i wonder if it 's an overheating problem of the driver or my...

    Question about this driver

    Hey guys, i just received 3 of these drivers. http://kaidomain.com/P4000-20mm-5A-1-or-2-cell-3V-9V-6-Mode-Buck-Driver-Circuit-Board?search=P4000 I want to use them with NUBM44 but i want to make them work only in the max current... Is it possible to happen?

    Laser driver and low current switch

    Hey guys, i m curious if there are drivers out there, high current, that have a built-in mosfet circuit to allow the usage of low current switches. I have enough quality drivers sitting on my self and waiting to be used but all of them need good switches too. On my first 4.7w build i used an...

    Non anodised tailcap switches to buy

    I m preparing a couple of new hosts the upcoming days and at first i thought that i would also make custom tailcap switches. I didn't try yet but i think that buying the switches is easier. My problem is that I can't find non anodised ones... Any idea where to look for them?

    How many Amps should a NUBM44 draw?

    Hey guys, in the photo i m uploading is the amps that this diode draw from my power supply... I thought that the NUBM44 should draw about 4.5 amps at 5.2V if i m not wrong.... Am i doing something wrong by measuring the current this way or maybe this diode is not NUBM44?

    Ideas and instructions for custom tail cap - no switch

    Hey guys, after my first custom host with rear end tail cap switch i d like to make one with side push button latching switch. So i want my rear end to have a threaded cap but without a switch. Just a board and spring. How do you recommend to mount a blank battery board on a cap? By tight...

    Can lower than rated Amps hurt the diode?

    Hey guys, i want to use my NUGM02 1W+ attached on a tripod for taking leveling measurings in distance. That means it will have to stay on for about a minute some times. The recommended current of the seller is 1.7A max. It will sit on a custom host with, i believe, a serious amount of cooling...

    Battery contact board

    Hey guys, i m about to make my own host and i m looking for a blank battery contact board like the one that survivallaser selĺs. I was about to buy from them but when i saw the shipping for Greece i almost had a heart attack... It was about 45usd shipping for 2 boards and 2 driver pills... Any...

    My first blue Laser!

    Hey guys, this is my first attempt to build a "powerful" laser. The diode is a Nichia NUBM4B 4.7w, bought from techhood on Ebay. I m using a skyray led torch for the housing. Really spacious for a newbie like me to work! I m using an Astral superdrive V as a driver at 3.6A and G2 lenses. I...

    My first 1w green laser... Which diode to use?

    Hey guys, after i completed my 4.7w blue laser with a NICHIA NUBM4B i want to build a less powerful 1w+ green laser... But i m confused which diode to buy... Do i have to find a powerful Ir diode that will use special lenses to produce the green colour or are there diodes that will give green...

    Mosfet??? to prevent switch melting???

    Hey guys, on my way to build my first ~2W laser i decided to use the housing of my old skyray torch... Beast of a housing but for a newbie like me there's an issue. How to avoid melting instantly it 's tiny switch? Thanks too @Giannis_TDM , i m looking a way to pass the current through a mosfet...

    Nice to be here guys! I m Alex!

    Hey guys, good to find you here! I m Alex and i decided to deal with this "hobby"! I was thinking about it a few years back, but i let it go even though i bought a diode, a driver that i think is not what i need and some copper... Now i m back and i decided to read and learn... I already ordered...
