Iv got one on the way. Module is ready, just need to get the driver and Batt. Very excited about this one.
If you are only driving the microboost @ 300mA it will run continuously without any heatsinking. No need to make the build more complex since you don't have to or make it so that you will never get the driver back out if you need to relocate it for some reason.i have another of these diodes at the post now, and am going to take my time with this build. it's going into a fandyfire host with a microboost drive at around 300ma. should have time in the next few days to put it all together. the color and beam specs on this diode Are great. pix soon
edit: i've pressed the diode into it's module and modified the heatsink by drilling out the backside id a bit to allow headroom for the driver. the microboost will be thermal glued to the pill. next step is to solder the driver leads and set the current using a selectable test load.
That is with no lens, on a white door at about 2 feet. I just wanted to add it to the pics since I had one.Nice!!! I have one more on the way... I will post it when it gets here..
Havent checked if Wanaburn has got the 2 I sent him yet. or the mits500.. should b there by now.. If he is like me were busy these day's Spring is in the air! Get back to me when you can.. that's a nice beam there...
Is that without a lense? or just unfocused?
That is the cheapest I have seen them. I try pretty hard to match the best prices out there but this one is pretty close to what I paid for the stock I have now.:undecided:
I have not driven any over 200mA and have been pretty happy with the results. I am starting to think that over-diving these diodes is what is making some of the side distortions on the raw output some have been posting. Mine under 200mA all seem to have looked pretty nice but everyone that has sent me a picture of that strange side artifact or whatever it is are driving them above 300mA.I have seen a report that one diode dies at 380mA. My C6 host has one set at 373mA which gives 240mW with acrylic lens.
You have to look at DTR own homepage. The link is in DTR signature.Me too... That was the first thing I thought of... :thinking:
They are right underneath the S06J diodes. There is a link in my sig or you can just click here.:beer:I looked at your eBay page DTR but couldn't see any there?
