i am looking for a site that would sell quality cheap (if those two words go togetger i dont know you tell me) laser diodes and drivers of all wave lenghts.
or any sort of universal driver that i could conect lasers of different wavelenghts to
cheers

I'm from Australia too. I have helped out many Aussies with their builds... So do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. Basically all our laser parts come from over seas, but I do have a few odds and end laying around sometimes, so you could ask me, or a few other Aussie members here for parts, for faster shipping time.

Take care, and welcome to the forum! -Adrian

I usually charge the price of the item lol.... I tend to make my money on labor when I build other peoples lasers, but if you want a proxy for parts, or just need a few odds and ends I will sell at the same price I bought it... And if you a loyal customer, I do add in things for free.

PS: The most accepted payment method on this forum is paypal. If you don't already have a paypal account, It can be set up at paypal.com.au, by doing this, it will allow you to send money instantly to most members here in LPF and also on ebay. Its just more convenient, for you and the supplier that way.

All the best -Adrian

It will, but the current the driver outputs will need to be adjustable, because different diodes require different input current. For example a PHR-803T 405nm blu-ray diode requires ~100ma input from the driver, where as a red would typically need ~400ma input. So depending on the type of diode you are using will determine the amount of current the driver must output for each diode.

Hope that helped -Adrian

Well yes... But there are drivers with a set current out put... for example the o-like blu-ray driver, comes with a fixed current output. This driver is not interchangeable with other diodes. So that's why you need to suit the driver to your laser.

Getting lasers into AU isn't particularly hard, you just gotta know how to do it.

First off, if you want a pointer from over the internet, that is >1mW, ask the seller if they can send the battery tube and pointer itself in separate packages. It may cost a bit more in shipping, but it should get the laser through customs.

Or, you can build your own! Many members here offer nice hosts, and you can just buy the module/diodes from the internet. Laser modules (lab modules) are still legal in AU, and you shouldn't have any problem with them in customs.
