I have seen some able to run to 700mA for a long time and I have seen some LED instantly @ 600mA. Going over 500mA on them is a crap shoot.:beer:
Linear drivers are the most stable hands down...
Don't they have heat issues? AnthoT I want one of your boost drivers, I just dont want to have to wait a month for DTR or Cajunlasers to stock a 500mA one
I would go 200ma ish 700ma is bullshit
Well 450mA is a much safer current, 500mA is the max, you will get a longer life at 450mA & 500mA will possibly give you ~50mw more & you are running it at the limit.
Your choice in the end
your hopeing for 750mw.. ma is for current. mw is for laser power out.. the s06j wont take 750ma but it can output 750mw.. I killed a couple s06j's arround the 500ma range so I would suggest you keep the current to 450ma..
I think there are a few sources for the diodes but you are better of just buying a diode because all of the BR players the good ones come in will cost you more than buying a diode... I briefly looked into that.. I cant tell you what the good ones come out of but I know it will cost you more for one than just buying a diode.. Though you may end up with a red too... or a combo.. DTR sells s06j's..
