    Single Mode Diodes Question

    wow those look great, this build im not focusing on power, i just want the tightest beam/dot at the farthest distance possible. power is not a factor really, simply a pointing laser so im trying to figure out whats best

    Single Mode Diodes Question

    Can you link me to a sharp 510, and maybe that 486? Or get me a model name, that's would be awesome

    Single Mode Diodes Question

    Hi guys! Just a quick question. I know DTR sells a 405 single Mode diode, but I was wondering if there's anything above this 405nm that is also single Mode, and under $100 or so, a 532 single Mode would be great. Or 520. Buy any wavelength that's fairly visible will do. Diode power is not such...

    Thermal paste around press fit aixiz?

    Anyone tried to hear the host so it expands, to make the module drop in easier? I won't do this, I'm just wondering :)

    Thermal paste around press fit aixiz?

    Thank you to all that responded. i will probably go with paste, just because haha, but another question, whats the safest way to press the diode into the host? light taps with a mallet maybe?

    Thermal paste around press fit aixiz?

    Haas anyone used thermal paste to help heat conductivity? I was thinking it may help to out a fine layer around my aixiz module, and potentially improve cooling performance? Opinions from all are welcome :)

    Would this come with/without stock lens?

    Yup, DTR has just got back to me, we told me he had been sick all week so that's why he hasn't responded. Again, thanks alot all!

    Would this come with/without stock lens?

    Thanks alot all, very excited! I noticed DTR does not have any sign in on his page. I assume there is some kind of automated system that sends you shipping details?

    Would this come with/without stock lens?

    awesome, this calms my nerves. what is the steel "lens" looking thing at the ends of diodes called? just a protector?

    Would this come with/without stock lens?

    So, im hoping i didnt mess up here, i accidentally ordered "NDG7475 520nm Diode In 12mm Copper Module W/Driver" from DTR WITHOUT a lens. i was meaning to order this with a lens, does this mean the module will come with the stock lens? this is a problem because i have nada a clue how to remove...

    dumb question here (lens) :

    Just what I was looking for, I will make 100% sure nothing dries onto the lens

    Driver (From DTR STORE) for NUGM03 Recommendation?

    Thanks alot! I unfortunately do not have any fancy stuff..... Yet... So I'll try to run it through a meter. Do you know much about drivers? And what would be a suitable candidate for this diode? Seen alot of superx out there, but I have nada a clue. I'd like to run the diode around 1.9-2A...

    Diffuse reflection - can it damage the eyes?

    Let me apologize,if its burning your finger, unfocused, then its possible it is more. that being said, that powerful of a diode (if it is) in that small of a host, has to get VERY HOT EXTREMELY FAST!! if there is anything over 500mw in that pen, duty cycle would be mere seconds i would presume...

    Driver (From DTR STORE) for NUGM03 Recommendation?

    Looks like I'm most likely going to picking out a driver myself, my host takes 2x18650 and I use Samsung 35E Cells, (3500mah 8A Max Continuous) Id like to prefer reliability if possible, and softstart would be a big plus. From my very basic understanding, seems like linear is the most...

    WTB from USA: 1W-1.5W 520-525 Diode + Driver

    i can confirm i sent my email to this email and have still not received a reply. this was my message to him: " As I am very interested in a NUGM03+ Driver combo. I do have one of your G8 lens but I know the diodes come with a stock lens and I don't trust myself to get the stock one off myself...

    i will now, and ill let you know in a few days if i have any issues. thanks alot!

    WTB from USA: 1W-1.5W 520-525 Diode + Driver

    Can you contact DTR for me? I have not been able to contact him. I have tried on all 3 company emails a few times

    WTB from USA: 1W-1.5W 520-525 Diode + Driver

    Hi all! So I wanna dive into my first very basic build. I Have everything I need besides a diode and a driver. My host has Ample cooling. I have a aixiz so any diode that'll work with that is good. I have a g8 lens so all this is covered. My host takes 2x18650 in series and I'd like to drive...

    Diffuse reflection - can it damage the eyes?

    Paul nailed it here. I own one of these, and they meter anywhere from 30-80mw. Although I would always practice caution, I'd say it will not cause any harm unless directly pointed at your eye from short distances.
