Re: 1.5W 445nm Polished Aluminum Ehgemus Host Review - My New Center Peice
Well I have a tendency to way overrun my lasers. I seem to think the duty cycle is when the driver overheat protection kicks in. Luckly these 445 diodes seem to be very hardy and I have not seen any degradation in any of my builds yet.Nice review! Now I am even more inspired to build a 1.5W blue laser
I was wondering what sort of duty cycle you use, and what lifespan you might expect (total hours usage) at this duty cycle with this power level.
Also, is there room for a heatsink on the driver? ( a small one).
Thanks and regards,
-Great beam shots BTW
