Alright I need a cash infusion for some more parts so I am going to try and offload these here first then on ebay if they don't seem to go anywhere here.

I pulled (M140) and leaded these myself using 26g silicon sleeved wire from FlaminPyro. The first 20 will have about 2000hrs of runtime (2052 IIRC) and the last 20 have 4208hrs of runtime. I understand the estimated lifetime of these diodes is about 6000 hours and i'm pricing them accordingly. I have tested that these work using my power supply but my LPM has no arrived yet so unfortunately I cannot do DTR level testing. ;] Please let me know if you have any questions.

$13/per for 1 diode
$11/per for 2-9 diodes
$8/per for 10+ diodes

Add Full Length Module (copper tops) with pressed in diode = +$7

Add G2 Lens = +$17


Orders over $40 i'll cover the shipping on, for the others I will ship in a usps padded flat rate envelope that is $6.80 (diodes will also be in a static bag which will also be inside padding) unless otherwise requested.

Why were the leads soldered on before they were in modules? That extra heat will shorten it's life. It's also impossible to press into a module with leads on it

What 10fenny said is very true they can be difficult to press these with leads installed, also you shouldn't solder with some type of heat sink around the diode.. I always solder in a jig (from Chinese lab module) or in a module.

Hope you sell some!

TBH didnt really think about the press in issue because i have been using a diode press with a hole through the center. As for the leads, the diodes sit in a jig while being soldered with a fan on them. I do appreciate the heads up!

Do you have any 12mm modules you could press them into for a little extra charge?

I do. They are the full length ones with copper top. I only have three on hand right now but I just ordered some more from DTR. Also have three G2 lenses if someone wants em with a module. Add $7 per module and $17 per G2 Lens.

Goodluck bud! The hole in the press is normal for all presses, but still can be difficult to press them with wire + heatshrink on (trust me I have tried) LOL.

I wasn't trying to diss your product, if they work and at this price you can't beat it. It's certainly a good price, for an A-Type I generally charge a few bucks more at minimum; although the last few harvests I have embarked on were PJs with ONLY M-Types so I guess your the only source for A-Type here right now other than Styro.

It's totally okay, from my short time here it is obvious this community looks out for one-another. I appreciate and understand the concern. ;]
