Default FS: 1.8-2W 445nm Maglite 2C Laser!

This laser includes the following features:
Black Maglite 2C host. As always, it is a side clicky on/off with the ability to do momentary on.

Dr. Lava's premier FlexMod P3 driver set to 1.8A. It is intended for labbies, so it is ultra high quality with diode saving features built into it.

2x18650 Sanyo Li-Ion 2400 maH batteries. This means the laser has 1 hour and 20 minutes of battery life before needing to recharge. Sanyo has the best batteries and reputation for Li-Ion batteries.

XJ-A140 diode, not the 130 diode.

Glow In The Dark dustcap. Its important to keep dust off the glass lens for a better beam.

Worlds smallest Li-ion charger: Cottenpickers Chargers. Provides TRUE CC/CV charge profile and non-trickle termination of charge to extend the life of the battery and keep the capacity high. It plugs into any USB port so you can bring the laser/charger with you where ever you go. Just need a computer.

MASSIVE aluminum heatsink.. HUGE!

Aixiz 445 glass lens. I prefer the lower cost and better beam profile of these lens.

I used Arctic Silver 5 to remove any possible air gaps on where the diode/module meet, the module/heatsink meet, and where the driver transistor/heatsink meet. Diodes hate heat build up, so I do to! Its worth the extra time to painstakingly apply thermal compound to the critical areas.





Just had one of my customers LPM a few of the lasers. Two of them Peaked 2W!


Suggested laser use cycle: 4 minutes on / 1 minute off.


The laser with everything included is $270 shipped (48 states) and is putting out 1.8W-2W. Everything is included except glasses. You DO need glasses and must purchase them separately.

TERMS AND AGREEMENT-

- You are legally responsible for the use of these components, improper use of these components or their end products.
- You are legally responsible for any injury to anybody resulting from the use of or assembly of these components or their finished products.
- You accept this Laser as an OEM COMPONENT for integration in a system of YOUR OWN design and will be legally responsible from any and all LIABILITIES.
Legal Notice: The Laser Diodes and Modules are designed solely as an OEM component for incorporation into the customer's end products.

Apparently there have been some questions to the claims this seller is making please read through the entire thread before deciding to purchase.

Its not the stubby, its Maglite 2C. Based off of the ROP (Roar of the Pelican) build from CPF (Candle Power Forums.)

Its a tight fit for two 18650's but it gives the laser a lot of maH at 2400. Pretty much the same as 26500, maybe even MORE because of the highest quality batteries I put into this build.

Many a sleepless night were spent getting all the details and parts right. Quite the project but I had soo much fun doing it.

Its kind of funny that the Maglite 2D laser that you sold to a guy in Thailand is the same guy I sold one of my lasers to. The Maglite 2D laser was the reason I decided to make all of these, I wish they had Maglite 2C's in colors other then Black and Shiny Black

If you send one to me in Los Angeles, I'd be happy to put it on my Radiant Alpha for you. I just sent it back to Mariomaster and he verified the calibration, so it is a recently calibrated meter

Actually, I'll make an open offer to meter ANYONE's laser for free if you send to L.A. with a return label.

If it's in fact over 1.8W I'd probably buy it haha (I wonder how hard it would be to hide one this size from the wife?)

There is a current vs. output graph out there, and in fact, an average diode(Dtr's tests) at 1.8A with a aixiz 405/445 glass lens averages around 1,710mW. to Get 1.8W you would need a very efficient diode

cause hell, i've had a a140 diode being driven at 1.5A only putting out 1.2W, so in this case A does not directly = W if you get that

Are you sure you can handle that much power?

Btw, new pics coming soon.

Its a nerd right of passage to say its over 9000. I just needed to pop my cherry.






A quote from jayrob on how his Maglite 2C performs (which is the same as mine except for a few tweaks I threw in):

If jayrob who is one of the godfathers of monster builds says that this build will perform the same as Frankenstein then I believe him.

I should have someone coming later this week to meter some of my lasers. I will post the results when I get them.
