I have found the 2w on (site*) for 10$ a pop me and styro are looking into it. * it's blocked out since we haven't confirmed that it's not a scam. Looks very promising though the seller has good ratings.oops, sorry its a new 2W 488nm 9mm diode, a 5W 455nm 9mm diode and a 1.5W 525nm 9mm diode ... but still impressive
I will send you the link, If you are lucky they will reply and offer you one.
That's probably what I thought as well.Link is easy to find if you Google the part #. Alibaba seller.
Y'all are a bit too optimistic on this. The seller lists pretty much everything in n!chias catalog. I've asked them several times over the years about oddball diodes and they always gave an excuse and either recommended some other common diode or just turned me away completely. They give the smell of "I don't know what I'm selling" which is a red flag to me.
So the only way to buy is through a third party company/seller who ordered thousands of diodes from Nichia...unfortunate.Yes it is possible, but I'm not aware of any member here who has managed to buy from them direct. We'd likely make a small order (as in less than 10k diodes), so it would be a waste of their time to make unless they drove the cost up to compensate. Manufacturing a small run will likely drive up the cost into the "prohibitively expensive" range.
