My 1.86/2.08W Custom Ehgemus 445!

That one did 2.1W in the end, and this was before the abundance of 2W+ diodes. Oh did that make your comment wrong? Yes, yes it did. Once again you go making ASSumptions before you know anything about it. I have also built several other 2W+ builds, just never did a write up on them.

Your "monster diode" didn't cost a penny more than any other diode out there. Just because it was a good one doesn't justify the price. Your ripping people off. A build that cost me $150 in parts I would sell for $225 TOPS. I would feel like a scam artist charging your kind of prices.

Once again, your a know it all little punk. Who makes an ass out of himself alot.
Then by all means, in these 2 years you've been on this forum, never created 1 build near 2.5W? Out of how many sellers/builders have build a laser of this magnitude on this entire forum in its entire lifetime? I can name about 2 other single-diode builds.

Again dude if you think you're so good, go build one 2.5W and over in your Maglite LOL. Let's see it bro, less talk, more action.

YOU need to be set straight:
1) You started the trolling/rudeness in this thread
2) On top of this, you're absolutely WRONG in this thread and
3) After all this, you're still pumping your pride to satisfy your inferiority complex

Ryan, there is no difference between building a 2W build and a 2.5W build other then the fact that you get a more efficient diode, which as of lately just started popping up more frequently. in the past, hitting 2W was considered efficient.

Also, just because somebody is a long time member here, does not mean they have to build the most high power laser they can, some people like to just build for fun. And enjoy their lasers.

Anybody that's built a few lasers can do what you did in that build. It's all about the right diode, which you lucked out on.

Or wait did you buy a projector and harvest the diodes and bin them for efficiency and output like the pro's do? I'm not the one boasting my superiority and professional grade builds, which yours are not by any means.


EDIT: dear god, thank you Joe.

I didn't "luck out" on getting that diode my friend I'm not divulging any info to you, but I can do another 2.5W build tomorrow if I want. I do plan to, but not so soon, as I'm engineering a couple of new hosts to fit the other monster diode.

Unless you're saying I can "luck out" on these diodes all the time from DTR or something, great, I guess I'm that lucky huh.

My builds are top-notch. I won't say their professional, I merely used the word "Pro Shop" because Pro Shop means Custom Shop, at least in Sports language. Doesn't mean the stringer at the Pro Shop is a Professional, it just means you can customize your build like you're the Pro.

No doubt that 2Ws are common, but 2.5W+ is incredibly rare. And tbh, none of Jake's builds are that interesting or even cosmetically appealing to me. Even the nice kits from Jayrob ended up as a bunch of parts slammed together with no engineering. Still using crappy brass modules with a 2W diode I see. The copper modules I use have 3x the thermal conductivity than your brass junk. No wonder you sell your builds at "$150" LOL, great "quality". Congrats.

Me too actually, that's why I sold my 2.5W+. It does give you huge bragging rights tho

Once again, unless you are buying projectors yourself and picking out the good one's you aren't doing anything special.

Maybe you paid somebody more money for a better diode. Who knows? But it's not like you are manufacturing these diodes yourself.

And you consider your own builds top notch. How about a review from a respected member around here? try that out. See if they think your pricetags are worth it.

Selling a 2.5W laser to a noob doesn't give you any credibility on your work.

Who has said your builds were top notch? Show me a link to somebody who bought your builds and knows what they are talking about and said it was a "top notch" build.

And no, that's not how it works. your calling yourself a pro hoping to lure in the noobs by the word pro. You have no right to label anything you do as "pro" until it has been proven.

Ok, so going back over this, what makes building a 2W laser any different then building a 2.5W laser?

Lets hear it ryan. what do you do different in your 2.5W builds than my 2W build?


Are you ordering 2.5W diodes from a new un-known source that nobody else on the forum knows about?

Let's hear it. Almighty lord of the lasers.

And once again bragging rights? Do you have bragging rights on that diode? Did you make that diode yourself from scratch? if not you have NO bragging rights on that diode, since that WAS the only SPECIAL thing about that build.. Anyone who's built can build that same exact 2.5W laser you did, it just might not make 2.5W.

I'm not wasting my time to explain to you every little thing I do to my builds. But all I'm saying is that I sell my builds at what they're worth based on the market, this ultra-rare 2.5W diode is worth loads and you think I'll just let it go for $150? With the hours I spent and the effort I put it? You're a joke.

My builds ARE top-notch and I've shown a tiny skillset teaser in my Linear heatsinking thread. With people like you around, I really don't want to divulge anymore tips when I don't even get appreciation for them.

You sure think very highly of yourself while telling me that I'm the one that does.

Everyone can build a 2W laser, but not everyone can build a 2.5W laser (assuming 1.8A current limit). I'm one of the few who has done it.

Do it yourself and by the time you find one that efficient, let's see if you still want to sell one at $225 like Jake is suggesting looool.

I said something that cost me $150 in parts an less than an hour of build time because besides sinking the driver what else did you do in that build that is so special? Put batteries in it and put the diode in the heat sink/ set screw it in? Damn son that must have taken hours.

Seriously I would love to know what you did worth that $225 profit for something we all know took less than 1 hour of ur time to build.

Nope, it took 4-6 hours in this particular build. Not everybody slaps parts together like you and call it a build. I am slow but meticulous, and every build I make sure is perfect.

Buy one and find out yourself

If somebody can build a 2W laser, then they can build a 2.5W laser. Just as long as they get an efficient diode. I don't see how this makes you so special?

No they can't, because they don't have the diode. I sell the laser as it's worth, not its cost, my friend.

You can learn how to make a 2.5W laser for years and still not be able to make one. The fact is I CAN make one, realistically. Not in theory.

Again, I challenge you, if you think it's not special, then do it yourself.

They aren't that rare. Lots of people have gotten high efficiency M140 diodes...
