Default The "Elder Beam" - DIY 635nm 500mW (Ancient Light's Twin)

This was built as the RED follow-up to the BLUE "Ancient Light" build here. The "Elder Beam" is another antique torch conversion, with a few new innovations relative to it's younger (older?) brother.



- Mitsubishi 635 @ ~500mW.
- Giant heatsink, tapered, and polished.
- Uses the Mosquito RED 1A single cell driver.
- Original antique dual clicky - momentary and on/off.

Here's where it gets neat

- Built in lithium ion cell, with charging port inside the rear tailcap.
- Integrated voltmeter triggers when the beam is active, shows the cell's voltage to indicate whether charging is required.

That's awesome!

Where did you get that voltage meter? All the ones I have seen needed two li-ion cells.

Got any more of those LED meters? I think you have me sold on the internal battery on these old lights.

That looks awesome!

I grabbed the meter from someone over on CPF. But I think with some searching (particularly for the keyword "1S") you should be able to find whatever source they purchased from.

Wow! That is an awesome build, and the voltmeter... love it

Can't +rep you yet, but this build definitely deserves it.

A real old fashion clicky. They are a pain in ass to adjust if the metals inside are bend.
I have also an old metal flashlight for 1 AA battery. I have to find it first in boxes at the attic. Maybe suitable for a laser.
