How/why do you conclude that?Igor;
The 8X diodes are most likely 250 mw.
The 12X diodes are most likely 320 mw.
That is 28% more pulse power.
So, since the weak 8X has survived over 30 hours @ 300ma,
the average 12X should easily survive at 384 ma (128% of 300ma).
Just food for thought.
You have the final decision of course.
Larry dug up some charts showing the pulsed power requirements for different speed writers.How/why do you conclude that?
We don't really know how it works. That's why i was wondering how "flexible" which diode is, when it comes to how far they can be overdriven.I don't think it works like that Larry
