i'm gonna try 200ma max cause im on laser probation unauthorized laser purchases and i'm in trouble again : ;D :'(
This is the cruncher that we try to get across to everyone. While the majority of diodes operate at a given RANGE or output power at a specific mA, it's impossible to determine the power of the laser without a power meter. You can expect to get in between 1mw and 1Gw. How's that sound?what kind of mW's do you typically get running these at 180mA? and what if you add jayrob's "magic" lens?
