Hi all,

I was digging in my lasers box and I found thing




Is it possible to adjust the current to make it work with the Sharp 505nm?

HI, The answer is no the X Boost starts at 1A and is adjustable to 1.8A. The 505nm diode will do well at 275mA with a DTR nano without the bridge across the resistors. so if you order a nano in the first range it's basically a plug and play for the 505 diode. Just make sure your diode is NOT case POS+ then you need to isolate the diodes 12mm copper module from the host and you will need a diff driver. paul is good at this maybe he will come in.

If you are looking for a driver for a case positive 505nm diode, the only option I've used is the Survival Lasers" Blitz Linear Driver. You don't need to isolate anything with this driver, but the pot is tiny and difficult to adjust. It tends to stick and won't rotate. I use a pair of tiny side cutters to grab the disc on the pot and turn it gently.
