The specs on these two diodes I bought are all jacked up I think. the say
Working Current:<45-60mA
Working voltage:1.9-2.5VV WTF does this mean??

What diodes were they (wavelength and output power are sufficient).

That means you need less than 60mA and more than 2.5V to power them; looks like a low power red or infrared.

Where you bought it from will help as well, they kind of look like Laserlands specs. I've bought their 50mW diodes which are listed with similar requirements but actually need >3V and ~80mA.

Looks about right to me... You haven't even supplied
the wavelength of the Laser or even a link... That is Screwy...

I would assume that it was a Red or IR Laser Diode of low
power...

Perhaps doing a little research and reading on the Forum
would give you a clue...
