I would say that a 10440 would be ok for 600mA's with a 445...$9 is reasonable. I really like this and I want to find some way to do a class IV laser with one of these.
Yeah, but then it might not be class IV anymore. I just want a super small class IV. Some of the charts I've seen suggested that a 12X BR has (or can have) better efficiency than a 445. 'Cause like I saw you did a 445 on the micro key chain style at 260mA or so and were only getting 78mW. Or is it just at powers that low that 445s are inefficient?I would say that a 10440 would be ok for 600mA's with a 445...
That will give you your class 4 laser! Maybe 650mA's if using an AixiZ 445 lens instead of a 405-G-1...
But that is probably pushing the battery about as far as you could. I would keep it to about 500mA's just for better capacity/run time if it were me...
