    The Little Diode That Could

    I'm not sure why the site won't let me add the photos, but the diode is still running strong! OP updated with total run time. 72,166 hours and counting!

    The Little Diode That Could

    I'm traveling, so this post will be short. But yes the diode is still shining on!

    The Little Diode That Could

    I'm really glad you asked about the diode. It's been a long year, and not just for the obvious reason... In November 2020 we experienced a 13 day power outage. The diode was placed in my travel battery bank, the same one I have been using since starting this experiment. It allows me to swap...

    The Little Diode That Could

    Still going strong! I am really starting to think that I may have to pass the diode down to my kids someday. Edit, I have a lot more to write, stay tuned!

    Aixiz Shipping

    Thanks guys! I might have ordered from them back in I don't know, 2013 / 2014. But a lot has changed since then, and I was supposed to have had these ordered last week! I just wanted to see if the virus had an impact on their business and if I should expect the same great service. I didn't...

    Thank you Hak, PM sent. I just wanted to make sure they were still operating "normally" given the circumstances.

    The Little Diode That Could

    I wish I had a power meter that would read this low. That would have been pretty cool. I'm sure the diode is undergoing changes, but it would be cool to have measurable data. It doesn't look as though it has dimmed, and the artifacts in the dot are likely just dust on the lens, but I really...

    The Little Diode That Could

    It's official guys! We have hit 53,256 hours of continuous run time on this diode. I guess from here on the updates will come annually unless there is a change in the status. Thank you to everyone who has been encouraging in this endeavor, more than once I have asked myself why I was still...

    The Little Diode That Could

    Also, a while back I posted a picture featuring my fearless guardian. There were concerns about her safety. I decided the critics were right, she was far too small to protect such an invaluable asset. So I upgraded the security.

    The Little Diode That Could

    50,374 Hours! How time passes! Hope everybody is doing well. It hasn't quite been a year since my last update, but I have since moved. The diode had to be placed on a power brick so there was a very short time when the diode was off. To be more exact, about 10 seconds in total as it was...

    The Little Diode That Could

    You know, I have replaced all the bulbs in the house to led. Only had one so far fail prematurely. The rest have been going strong for around 3 to 4 years now.

    The Little Diode That Could

    I thought this little diode would have popped years ago. It is annoying at times because I would really like to use that socket! But when i really stop to think about that familiar glow in the kitchen going dim... I get mixed emotions. It has become a member of the family at this point! It...

    The Little Diode That Could

    Here we go again. Another year (almost), and another update! This diode refuses to die. We are at 42,625 hours and counting!

    Where do we get batteries these days?

    I hadn't seen them. Sad to see lighthound go. Thats where I got my 10180... haven't even found another. It is a tiny little battery. About a year ago I intended to get back into lasers, i have 2 builds that just need diodes and i bought out stock of 120 heatsinks... just havent pulled the...

    Where do we get batteries these days?

    Hey guys, I've been away for some time now. I went to lighthound and they're gone! Where are the hip kids in the know getting their electrons? But seriously, I am building a small robot and weight and size are both a factor, I have a tiny one that could work but i need 12v so one isn't even...

    The Little Diode That Could

    It hasn't been quite 4 years yet, but if I don't update the post now I'll forget. As of now, the diode has been running for 34,893 hours! I did have a scare a few months ago. There is a vase with faux flowers in it that sits next to the diode. It had gotten bumped and the petal of one flower...

    Post Your GUN (PICS)

    Not exactly a picture, but I'm looking for a flashlight mount that can mount to a rail with windage and elevation adjustment. Anyone seen anything like that? I've found one but it wasn't universal and could only work with one specific flashlight.
