Hi A B,There's a pretty good chance they will be. It's pretty crazy that this diode hit 7.96 at only a little over 4.5 amps. I haven't even pushed it all the way up. I'm getting some BlackBuck6 6 amp drivers this week. I think it will hit 8.3watts. That's just my guess. I have my quad NUBM06 build pretty much all set. It's going to be pretty intense. I can't wait to see what it looks like in the night sky.
You shouldn't meter powerful lasers so close to the LPM, the heat will throw the readings off.This is the highest wattage yet. 7.95watts at 4.6amps this diode seems to be very efficient. I have a bench power supply on the way then I will be able to do a thorough test.
I was getting ready to pull the trigger on a 44 build before I saw these. So even at that price, they seem worth it. I'm debating holding off until we see what's going to happen with those 08 blocks, but if you think that you want to start a 06 GB, just let me know.I can get them but not at the price I was paying. It will probably be around $540.00 but that's with 3 day fedex shipping.
