This violet diode is better than BDR-209 and S06J. However, the beam quality is lower than that of a single mode diode.
Point size is also larger than single mode. i like this multi violet :love: Power consumption is low and lifetime is good

Juicy :) That's very attractive output for that wavelength, certainly the brightest looking 405 I've seen in pictures.

Can you please tell us what diode it utilizes.

I recommend R200 Chinese driver or SXD driver 1amp. My driver is R200 chinese driver 930ma ~ 1A.

Hi Maya, what is the diode outputing at, and what are your run times?

GH04W10A2GC diode. 1.3w 414nm with G7 lens my build. 5sec use 10sec rest.

That is a nice output , but the run time is a bit low. I am using the same diode. My run time is continuous, as my diode outputs 800mW from 520 mA. I am going to try 610 mA at some point though.

1A will create a short life for this diode,Anyway it's a great build, enjoy them ,like your pen
what driver?-R200?
PS: although said many times,750-800ma is great for power and longlife of this diode

We see fake doctored data sheets on China listings quite frequently.

R200 is this



I bought this last year I ordered it with 2W output, but I could not be satisfied with NDB7675.
BUT!!!!. I left one R200! this is suitable for 405nm

Sorry for the necro - is this the same diode as the 16X BDR-209s? The BDR was supposedly SM though I've never seen an SM at more than few hundred mW. Cheers LPF

edit: whoops the BDR sample I have is a 3.8 not a 5.6.. mystery deepens.

edit2: Apparently the BDR-209 is a non-public Nichia.. good luck getting them unmolested, sourcing from Nichia is a nightmare. Looks same as NDV4642/4542 etc

i like BDR-209 single watt output violet. however It dies easily. I have been waiting for Sharp 1.5w Violet for several years
