Mine arrived today. Thanks. Only things left to wait for now is the diodes.drlava said:These drivers are buck or boost current regulators that can run on anything from 2 1.5V cells to a li-ion 18650. Input voltage range 2.5V to 5.5V. High efficiency up to 90% power conversion. They have a pot so current is adjustable to suit your needs. Two current ranges: (32-200mA+) (100-500mA). There is a soft start and startup delay of 1 second when you first turn it on; subsequent turn-ons in a short period do not have this delay.
I just tested and yes, it can. Not much higher than 125mA with a boost from 3V to 6V, but it can do it.TheMonk said:how about 6v with 125mA or higher current using 2x 1.5v AAA?

Since the voltage will be stepped up, the current draw on the battery will be slightly higher than the current through your blue ray. Is it a PS3 Blue Ray? If it is, and you drive it at 42mA, the average current draw on your battery will be around 64mA - less when full, more when empty. It's going to work for almost 4 hours and 45 minutes on a 305mAh battery.F1SportsFan said:I was looking at one of these drivers to run a Blu Ray LD, powered by a single 10440 cell (3.6V 305mA). Do you see any problems with that set-up? I am not sure if that will be enough current to run the LD for very long.
