Default WANTED: Portable + 500mW+ 445nm + continuous operation + 30mins plus battery life

Hey guys, I currently have 4 Arctic G1's(I know everybody says they suck, but I've had good luck with them). I'd like to get some more, but WL doesn't sell the G1 anymore.

Anyhow, after reading around, it looks like Jayrob, Dave, FlaminPyro, Yobresal, DTR, and a few others sell the best stuff, so I figured I'd post up this thread to see what you guys are offering.

Specs that I'm looking to achieve:
-portable
-simple on/off button that doesn't require thinking
-500mW+ filtered
-shoot far into the distance (I don't care about burning stuff close up, I just want a distance pointer)
-445nm or in that range, it can be higher or lower, I just want it to appear blue
-continuous duty cycle? (not sure if this is the correct term, but I don't want to have to turn the laser off every 5 mins to let it cool down)
-30 mins + of battery life, the more the better.
-badass looking (this isn't a requirement, but it'd be a bonus if it could look as nice as the Arctic does)

If you guys meet or exceed these requirements, please post what you're offering or a link to what you're offering with a price. I can pay via paypal.com.

Thanks!

Almost 6 inches tall, little less than an inch thick. 10 mins of runtime. Owned it for 3 months. I built it.

If it only has 10 mins of run time, how are you certain that it'll stay powered on for 30+ minutes without overheating or the batteries dying?

On topic. I have built a few units that can do a 30+ minute run but that is a tall order in a portable. Also just because it can do it does not mean that it is good to do it on a regular basis. I would suggest a Labby with TEC if you are wanting to run it for 30 minutes on a regular basis.

I've never run my Arctic's for longer than two minutes (no exageration), but I don't want to worry about it overheating. That's the biggest concern. I figured if I ordered more than I needed then I could enjoy it more because I wouldn't be worrying how long I've had it on for.

I think your best bet is one of Jayrob's Maglite hosts. But even that one meet all your criteria. The divergence of the 445nm diode isn't that good, you won't get good distance with it.

You guys are probably just pickier and more advanced than me. Basically, I want another Arctic G1, which this forum labels as junk. "One man's junk is another man's treasure." I don't know of anything better, so I'm happy with that. Anyhow, if I could find anything close to that, I'd be happy to buy it.

I am selling 1.8A (approximately 1.8W) 445nm lasers that can run for 80 minutes of total runtime.
Check out my signature for the sales thread.
