A couple questions on your MDXL aaa (or 2aaa) builds.
Do you use the driver that comes with it (for a 450 or 638 build)?
What do you think the duty cycle would be on a 450nm 50mw build?
Thanks for some great ideas!
Great! Just what I was hoping to hear!
Any tips on changing the resistors? I've used the cheap soldering pens in the past but have a weller soldering station coming. I think I saw something about using a hotplate?
I recently purchased some Ben Boost Mini drivers from Moh and want to do a single mode 450nm build. With Ben's help (thanks Ben!)I found I need 1.9 Ohms of resistance to get the current to 100mA. I have some 1R8 resistors coming so I can set the current to ~ 100ma or 200ma depending on...
Ben, thanks! Since these are 1.25A I assume there are 2 R30 resistors. I don't see a value for one R30. Will it work with one and what would that current be?
Elsewhere Moh lists possible currents for the BenBoost Mini not listed on the first post, including 100ma. Do you know which resistors...
Mohrenberg, This is a great deal on the Benboosts for us. Thanks!
Does anyone know of a link or schematic on how to set the current with the resistors? I looked in the BenBoost thread but didn't make it through all 51 pages.
