DTR- is this the diode i bought from you when you first started selling them, i think you had only a few at first and i got one of the first batch. If so, i cannot Remember what i had you set the current at but it runs at a very consistent and stable 1.130 watts with G9 lens. I don't run it often but last night i put some fresh batteries in it and took another reading on the Ophir and it went straight to 1.13w and held there for a full 60 sec. Not sure if this is on par for this diode or if mine is a freak. Regardless i am enjoying its performance. Unlike my first 405 bought a couple years back that ran around 700mW, this one has a very clearly visible beam in the night sky. Side by side they are vastly different in visibility and since the power difference is not huge I'm wondering if the wavelength is shifted more on this one.
