Well I got my items on friday! Now there slightly higher princess make sence, thay just need to sell DIY flashlight parts and I might order from there more often for the fast shiping.
The laser big surprise is only 56mW with freshly charged batteries. Tho it is very stable output for a pen...
Well I ordered a shiny laser & a light. I figure the laser will make a nice host if the module sucks. So well se if I get them. :tinfoil:

Same shit different pile, just my .2 cents.
Dont get me wrong ill be buying a 300mW & some 30mW 635's. I was only trying to second Grix on the lower powerd diode, and that beter beam characteristics is usefull for a wider market than laser pointers.:)
I was not trying to say your not intelligent just trying to better clarify with my...
Hears a pic to help you.
The 300mW 635nm TO18 (5.6mm) diode in your spec sheet has a divergence of 35° x 7°. That will make a thin wide line, like this ________

Well with OEM im not sure where they sorce there lab lasers, but for laser glow and dragon lasers I think they sorce from CNI(a few companies do).
The only problem is CNI doesn't always like to deal with individuals and sometimes quotes high.
The specs on the dragonlaser look the same as the...
CNI is one of the best, so is OEM. Thay will be hight quality, but have a high price tag.
If your not as concerned about beam specs or a real lab laser look, O-like offers one for cheep.

I got a few of these a while back, as hand outs.
Thay all put out around 30~40mW
I never tested the ir output, but all newish cheep green pointers have some ir leakage.
All & all a not bad deal, "cheep pointer cheep price".
I Just used arctic alumina thermal adhesive.
Yup mineral oil.
It heats up a lot slower than I thought it would. I think I did good buy sandwiching tha driver pill between the heatsink and the old driver pill, the host heats up more all at once. Plus the extra mass of the mineral oil.
Yup thats right, liquid stabilized!
Well its all in a Cree Aurora host, A104 doide in a direct press aluminum heat sink. I used a micro flexdrive set to I think 1.1A(was going for max). I might need to make a new test load, the one I have now has ben used for 445 curents and smells when I use...
Why thank you sir :beer: I will probly use your circuit diagram to start. Ive been meaning to TEC my cpu and vid cards and do water cooling. Useing mosfet's with a thermal resistor typ build to power the TEC's.
But obviously ive got some reading ahead of me, before I build anything.
I was thinking a lm350 or two that I had got at the begining of the 445 craze, just to test its threshold and see how many dies there are and how many work.
For a full time power supply, Im not shure. I was thinking maybe finaly making myself learn how to build a mosfet circuit, but im not to...
that's a rough guideline actual results will vary depending on the diode efficiency and the curent you feed it. 350mA will be around 200mw and 400ma ~ 250mw, There are some threads around that give safe curents for known diodes.
I do recommend the aixiz glass lens its only 8$ and will have a AR...
It will cost you more to buy a hole dvd drive, look for a LPC-815 Sled.
That diode is good for 200mw with a acrylic lense, 250mw with a aixiz glass lense, or 300mw with a 605-G-1 lense
Take a look at Modwerx you can get a sled and a Aixiz module in one place
