    Ebay purchase help!

    Hey guys! I bought a transformer on ebay for $25 and free shipping. It arrived with $27 and change due! I didnt pay it, just left it at the post office for now. I think if I went ahead and paid that would mean I accept the charge and cant do anything about it. Now from my understanding it...

    Open Source GreenDrive - Help me out

    Sup guys, got another open source driver here! When the pl520 green diodes came out I had an idea to make a driver for them. I had saw a chip that could run from as little as 0.8v and still boost high enough for a blueray or green diode. How cool would it be to run your laser from either a AA...

    Answer a question about charging mini li-po?

    Ive been pondering an idea for a cool laser but I need to get a question answered before I start building. If I have a small (30mah) lipo battery can I charge it from a 5v supply by simply using voltage dividers to get 4.2 volts, ~30ma and timing the charge? Or do I need to uses special...

    Useless, might as well delete thread.

    So I bought one of o-likes newer style 405nm driver , the one that does up the 250ma, and can't get it to work. Ive made some phi pointers using the old style driver and it works fine ... But this new one didn't do so well. I hooked it to a test load and then to a standard 2x AA battery pack...

    Answer a question about parallel batteries?

    I need to know if it is safe to put two li-ion or li-po batteries in parallel. I have heard that if you want to do this you need to use a special circuit to keep them from discharging into eachother. If this is true where can i find one? I have searched around and have no results. What are...
