They are meant for 6-9v thats why its soo low.
I' trying to find which protection diode to use (I mean, which model). I'll set jibs' the drivers at 1.25A with a protected 18650 battery (max. 4.2v). Does anybody knows how to find the correct diode ? I went to the electronic's shop and they had lots of different models and they ask me for the model (for example 1N4001 Rectifier diode 1A 50v or 1N5400 @ 3A 50v).
About "50v", it means it can work up to that voltage ? so if it's working at 4v will have no problem or it will not work ?
Thanks again for your help ! (check your last reply I think is 1.25A instead of 1.25mA). (b)
How are you progressing on your boost drives Jib?
also, Would it be possible to use two 1.5ohm resistors in parallel so make a 1.65amp driver? I think that would be a good current for people who want high powers without compromising diode life too much...
I just tested the driver that I bought from you.. And it appears the diode is fried. It had 8.4 volts input, and 7.85 volts output going to the diode. A similar thing happened with my last driver. There appeared to be no resistance in either the diode nor the driver. So this is not far from powering the driver when its connected to nothing. Would this break the driver? (I dont want to order another diode, just to fry it with this driver).
