Hi there!
I am looking for a driver for a 488nm diode. I have searched but only find for sale for diodes 405 and 445 that have the 4.2v input. Besides the drivers are too amperage for that cyan diode.

Hi,
The MicroFlex V5 is suitable for the 488nm diodes and other lower power diodes.

Hello!.
But that driver does not give the vote that the diode needs. It is below the 6.5-7v in the laser diode data sheet 🤔

I've used the MicroFlex V5 for a 488nm diode and it worked fine.
From what I've heard, it is a good, possibly the best, driver for sensitive diodes too.
