I took apart my 5mW Red laser module last night and took out the diode and driver. Now could this driver be used to power one of Senkat's diodes? It's pretty small and I want to try and use it in my maglite mod. I searched the forums to see if anyone has done this or not and couldn't find anything on the topic. Thanks for the help!

I dont think so. The output is too small to power a 250mW diode... i dont know thought thats kind of a guess

No for 2 reasons.

1. The components will not handle the extra current demand for the GB diodes.
2. This driver uses PD feedback. There's no PD in the GB diodes.

Side note: the gb diodes arent 250mw, they are for pulsed but we use continuous wave which they are rated at 80mw, you can push them a little bit further but you wont get 250mw without TEC cooling.

if you want a good, cheap, easy to build driver look at the write-up DDL made.

Even I was able to build it, i'm still tuning it and such but it was cake, took longer to stand in line to buy the parts. =)
