Default Default 4.8W 465nm laser66 pen build (x-post)

(I hope the x-post and this section of the forum is correct. My apologies if not! I'm happy to move it where it needs to be.)

Super excited that I just got this working! I've been on a binge lately of building stupidly powerful lasers into these laser66 pen hosts (I absolutely love these things!). I personally love the form factor of these pens, and the more power I can jam into them, the better.

This build came out of a request from user BobMc -- he wanted a 3W laser, but I thought I could do him 2 better

Here are a couple quick videos I took of the thing in action along with a picture. Please pardon the bad quality and my dirty hands -- they're covered in thermal paste from the build.

VIDEO: Beam test

VIDEO: Lighting a match

IMAGE: Chrome pen host

Let me know if y'all have any feedback! The next step is to add an indicator LED to this guy (but I don't want to take him apart!).

(By the way, I'm working on a big post with the 5 or 6 laser66 pen builds I've done recently. Be on the look out!)

THATS SIMPLY ABSURD... I LOVE IT! It must be crazy in person seeing that much power from a pen. But tell us this, how fast does that thing overheat?

You know, I'm kind of amazed. I recently made a 1.4W 462nm that would overheat after about 7 seconds. This 4.8W can run for about 20 seconds before it gets decently warm -- it can definitely run longer, but I'm trying to be conservative at first until I get a better handle on how this thing runs.

Still, 20 seconds of 5W is more than enough time to do whatever you were trying to do

If you're referring to duty cycle, around 15 seconds. Actual lifetime of the diode, well, as long as I don't try to push that duty cycle, I don't see why this won't last years! Admittedly, I don't know the exact lifetime of these diodes, so if someone better versed wants to chime in...

445s have a lifetime of about 10,000 hours, usually. I think that this would be simillar
