Wanted to rep you but the system wouldn't let me, said I had to spread some around before I can do it again. So "I'll be back".
Apparently each of those chips on the driver he used is 350mA so just keep three on the board and desolder one of them to get 1050mA. I'm going to play it safe and desolder two of them for long life.Grainde, could this flashlight easily be replaced with a 1000ma driver and where could I get one?
Buying parts for a 455nm flashlight build!
You know that you don't use a soldering iron to "flow" the emitter onto the baseplate right? You just tin some solder on the board and place the emitter over and melt with a heat gun until the solder flows.Unfortunately I have no way to test the current so I have to just buy one that's pre-rated.
