I recognise those, they are made from extremely toxic metals, please carefully, with rubber gloves, pack them all up in a box and tape it shut. I will be forwarding an address to ship them to in Alaska.

Yes, as far as you can get them from you and I won't charge a disposal fee.

going to test some am warring IR glasses just in case hehe :pop:
i insert 12V and something blowup but the diode is ok so i decide to just extract it its very easy
after checking the diodes number's
TOLD9215 670nm
TOLD9140 685nm
TOLD9421 650nm

some have no number i extracted 4 so i can test it, am testing all diodes at 100mA
i found the pins on the driver solderd 2 wires and max on the driver input is 12V max its got a green/red led on the driver its got a pot i adjusted 1 laser so bright the color shifted
will post pictures and keep updating, the optics no idea some look yellow some look blue and some are clear may post all in the sell section

IIRC, this was from a deal you got on eBay for $40.00? I saw the 635nm diodes in some of the photos as well as others. I guess I need to pay more attention to eBay than I have been lately. Looks like you made out like a bandit. Plenty of drivers, too.

Drivers made for laser diodes often cannot take 12 VDC, I'd start at a much lower voltage and slowly increase.

Tested some drivers the work from 7.5V to 12V i also tested using 5X18650, over 16V the led turn red and laser stayed off its got thermal protection and reverse protection don't take my word , i broke the lens on the diode and stick in a screw driver and spray WD40 in it and it still works :wtf:
