Default Re: Modding my olike, what will you do?

I've never tried it, but you may be able to actually fit a green module (with it's own driver) into the dilda host...

And the module would of course take up some of the room inside the battery compartment. So it would run of off a single CR2 battery. Or possibly a 14500, depending on the length left over for the battery after the module modifications...

If you were to remove the final lens from the module, it even may be possible to set the module position so that it can be focused with a lens threaded into the head of the dilda. But you would probably have to cut the module brass barrel (or just remove the barrel and final lens), to be able to get the distance to the lens correct...

I'm not offering to do the work, because I don't sell complete lasers. But I'm just saying that I'm pretty sure it can be done without too much difficulty.

I have a host that fits a 12mm green module, with a focusing head. It takes an 18650. I had bought the host empty, and I had installed a 150mW green module in there (barrel/final lens removed. Focusing lens is inside the head of the host), but I did not like the focusable green set up at all...

The DPSS green beam is so thin, that any attempt to focus it, ended up with results that were less desirable than the optimum fixed focus point. Which was just to get the best visual dot at 50' to 70'. (IMO)

So I ended up taking the green module out of that host, and putting the barrel/final lens back onto the module, and I used it for my green Star Trek Phaser mod...

That is a great answer thank you for your help (its a lot better than NO that's not gunna wook lol) The olike 150 will fit just fine and if I keep the tail end entirely intact it will have to run off one battery at 800mah (next purchase lmao) I will be completely fine but I may need to extend the spring on the lower side so it is a more snug fit for the battery. Its all possible in a few hours time for fairly cheap.

I may be better off buying this but I despise momentary switches, they get pressed without you knowing, waste your batter and with the higher power lasers possible burn the shit out of something in your pocket and in a thick denim or cotton it wont be noticeable. Far 2 many compromises to just buy a laser, its either priced high, focusable, momentary, low mah batts needed ect to deal with so modifying is my best option for a good laser but the finer lens work im very nervous about. need to wear rubber gloves and be extremely careful of the whole process without ruining the damn thing.

With the red like you said I do think its just that one lens messing it all up and I should pop it open and flick it out and adjust it or deal with the headache of fixing it each time you point to something at a different distance.(although its probably smarter to carry one for short and one for long distances) but like i said the slightest thing can entirely ruin the laser and then I will need to get it fixed by someone with such fine detailed work.
