Hi everyone. I am pretty new to lasers and have been reading these forums for a

while now, I'm from california and just bought a 35mw greenie and am in the process of

doing a DIY red.​

One question, I orderd a diode pre installed in the module from senkat and built the

diode driver from the schematic, But what would be the best amount of ma to run the

diode at?

Welcome to the forum! :)
About your DIY red- The driver board should take care of that already... If it doesn't, you could always do Ken's flashlight mod. (Stickied in the Red Lasers section) The flashlight he uses has a "driver board" built into it that limits the current and voltage... Turns out it's a near perfect match for SenKat's diodes. :D
