This diode is legit , i am running one at 1.1 AMP and it is doing around 1.6 watts. The diode Needs a good heat sink because it produces a lot of heat. It is not as tight as a BDR, but it's powerful!!!! I was touched by its beam 1-2 times on my hand durring testing. It feels like a 5W 445. I tested it with a G-2 lens. G-2 is ok but a lot of splash. 3 element provides a good profile( oval). The lens has to be close to the diode to burn anything. But it is a good burner! I like it , and i bought 2 more.
SUPER Wolfram.. some needed to hear that... Junktronics has never let me down and IIRC my first buys were in 2000? yeah
just looked again for PM reply over there.. nothing yet.. he may have started harvesting .. he was too busy when he first found these..
