Damn Encap, I knew if anyone could get to the bottom of this, it would be you, and you also explained it in laymans terms so we could understand.

Lol, a semi-ordinary problem thread just turned into something else.
The lasing and vaping laser. Classic.
Encap, your scientific humour is greatly appreciated. Thanks for the laugh.
I also wasn't expecting to come across an interesting science paper. I'll read that later.

Wow! Sanwu got back to me already.

They have suggested
Quote:
Try or buy other 18350 batteries to see if the laser is okay first. Either something tiny is inside the battery tube when you put in the battery or you got a bad battery / bad battery cover.
Nitecore is going to get a very strongly worded email, I'll tell you that much just kidding. I will ask them to send me a replacement battery though. Their batteries are known to be reliable right?

he's bigger, faster, and stronger too,
he's the first member of the DK crew!

Bob, hex is just a base 16 numerical system where we are used to decimal (base 10) and binary ( base 2)
A common use for hex is colour codes. For example FF0000 is red. FF =255 or full on.
And every 2 characters is another colour within RGB. Another example. FFFF00 is yellow because R=255,G=255,B=0.

Ha, give me enough time Encap and I may of been able to. Thanks for sharing the rap.

I put my Nitecore IMR 18350 battery in and turned on the laser. Immediately it started smoking. The laser dot looked kind of strange, like it was several smaller dots instead of one circle. (This might be normal though, I don't know.) The laser beam seemed kind of dim. After maybe two seconds, I turned it off. The positive end of the battery is a little fried and blackened in a small area.

Please advise.
Smoking does not seem normal. The dot with circle of dots around might be ok. I see it too sometimes with my 405 nm. Even my friend noticed it when we were doing laserpainting. This wavelength is very tricky to be seen in deed. The dot always looks blurry by naked eye, even it is of perfect shape as seen through strong laser goggles/camera. That's what I observed so far.

Thanks for trying Curtis. But I just figured out what to do with the "rat" when it come to computers.
