I bought this 445nm driver from ebay from AixiZ Aixiz 445nm Laser Module Assembly Kit No Diode | eBay

And I received a different diode driver that the one pictured, I asked them the pin out for this driver and if it was a newer version etc and never got a response from them, so bad communication that paypal refunded me.

I'm stuck with this driver and I don't know if its 445nm 1 watt.

Has anyone seen this driver before? and knows the pin out specs etc?

Have you tested it on your test load yet?

Well the diode side gives a clue as it has a pad to secure the case pin. Most drivers don't reverse so the input is probably the same polarity. If so this would be your pinout. You do have a test load to set the driver?

I have (2) A140 diodes I just don't want to damage them by using the incorrect driver.

Smh.....those are diodes. He asked about a test load. Not even remotely the same thing.

Edit: ill put it as simple as possible and if you dont understand this then you shouldnt own a laser. We cant tell you if that driver will work for your diode since we dont know the current supplied by it. YOU need to test that with a test load.

Drivers look the same but one could be a 1.8A and another could be 578mA

Yes but do you have a test load to set the driver?
Like this(see picture) or one of the premade ones available from several members here. This would be required with any adjustable driver and really even fixed drivers should be tested before connecting to a diode to make sure they are regulating properly.

Pretty sure this is a major troll Jordan. I mean he has been a member for almost 7 years and he doesn't know that every driver is set differently? Yeah okay Keith Urban

Hmm on my dictionary a diode qualifies as a LOAD..... If I have a TEST LOAD for this driver so I don't damage my diodes = NO. I will have to make one. :)

I know that different drivers are for different diodes, that's the reason I ask if anyone has seen THIS driver in specific.

Thanks for the diagram, I have all those components here and I will make one and test.

Holy quad post batman! Havr you heard of a search bar? There are plenty of different test load diagrams on this site

I did help. I informed you that there are diagrams on this site for various different test loads. I also told you how to find them; the search bar.

If you dont want to take help then leave LPF. Our sole purpose isnt to spoon feed noobs who have been here for 7 years and dont know how to test a driver. That is laser building 101 and if you cant do it then sorry but put some effort in and search for your answer

Edit: didnt know you were the president of the internet and could dictate who posts where. Last I checked this was america, I can post where I please and pretty much what I please. Good day to you!

Been registered for 7 years doesn't mean I have to know everything about lasers, I registered to this site not to build lasers was more for to get information on some LED flashlights and some laser info. I saw the other test load diagrams/posts after DTR made his post but they use other types of diodes, I have different diodes bigger ones in hand and my question was directly to DTR to see if those diodes work for my test load.

Feel free to stay in the post trolling I could care less.
