Default Potential Laser Host?

Hey guys, so I was browsing DX and stumbled upon this flashlight and thought it might be a pretty cool host.http://www.dealextreme.com/p/trustfi...-1-10440-24291

Looks cool. But, really it doesn't appear to have enough mass to act as a heat-sink for a laser build.
Probably wouldn't work very well as a laser host.
Right now, I'm trying to use this flashlight as a laser host. It already has cooling fins and (sort of) looks like a mini-arctic.

Nice! Cheaper too! I just thought it would be cool using something like a 10440 and a PHR or something to that affect. I like the other one too though.

or like an underpowered 6-12x so that it produces less heat, I.E. less of a need for a large heat-sink........I think?

Yeah, I don't think a 6x or higher, set at a low current and powered by a 10440 would produce that much heat that you couldn't use the first host.
It's really a slick looking host, although with the flashlight having an outer diameter of 15mm, an aixiz module (12mm diam) may be a close fit. I may get one and try it out.

Hey,
I own that flashlight, and you won't be able to get an aixiz module into it unfortunately.

Thanks for the info (+1Rep).
You just saved me $13. I'll drop that right into the LPF donation box.

Someone on the forums made a 445 outta that mini arctic already!

yeah i had one that i got off of eBay and the module didn't fit, but i turned ti down on a dremel attachment and it fit great, i just saw this one it was a little different and i couldn't find the host on eBay anymore so i thought that it might work.
