I need help with connections for my 50mw green module. I'm trying to focus it in but I can't with the host I have. I need to know where the positive and negative connections are. Thanks :horse:

hmmmm, i'm not trying to be difficult but what do the pos and neg connections have to do with focusing? but to answer for your title, please post pix of the aperature so we can see if it is indeed focusable... most greenies are not. and about your drvier connection part.. also post a clear pic of that as well.

Do you mean ''focusing in on the solution''?

Most green modules are case positive, meaning the brass module, can be used as the positive input.

Does your module have just a spring at the bottom? If so that is your - side

Is this what you need?
You have 2 choices to use for both the positive and the negative path, depending on your build.

You have 2 options for a return path. The module it's self, and on the driver.

Do you mean ''focusing in on the solution''?

Most green modules are case negative, meaning the brass module part can be used as the return path for the electron flow.

INCORRECT!!! The module is case POSITIVE not negative. Do not connect the battery pack in that way!! you will destroy your module....

Here is a picture in my review that shows the two places that you can connect your pos and neg inputs. Which way do you want to power the module? Case positive or with soldered leads?

OMG! I don't know what I was thinking. bobhaha and Pontiacg5 are both correct.
I should know better, I have used more then a few 532nm modules.
Sorry:(
