Default Re: 7W+ Survival Laser S4X Host w/NUBM44 diode and 4.5A SXD Tutorial

Ok thanks! Yeah instead of the wires being soldered sideways it would be better having them like this.

Update! Using the tailored heatsink and 12 mm module with drilled pill no shelf there isn't enough room. Looks like mini jst is going to be my only option.

Having a spring height problem on my s4x. The blank battery plate/brass ring and drilled pill assembly is perfect but again I notice the sound of moving or sliding batteries when I turn it on side or up. Using only button top not flat top 18650's. I found a $1.00 led flashlight from Walmart that probably has a perfect spring height. Need a breakdown or teardown sheet for the tailcap. I can make this work 100%

UPDATE!
Foujnd it! Use needle nose pliers in the 2 holes inside the tailcap turning them. It took some pressure but I loosened it enough to use multi tester leads in the holes to turn it loose. I stretched the 2nd coil from bottom using caution then the rest of the spring. When I tried to test it....I got a S4X always on same as I read in another thread. Twist the spring inward away from the aluminum plate and it should fix that. In light of what I saw, knowing the burning power of the nubm44 I will be buying a metal carrying case and probably replace the tailcap switch with a keylock. Anyone got some leads for me on a keylock?

Hey brad I would combine your posts above before the police see. And about the sx4 host. While the idea is a good one the design of the host your experimenting on isn't the best platform. Ideally the heatsink should have the outside covered in thermal grease where it comes in contact with the host.
Is your driver board directly soldered to the diode pins or are you using the driver shelf pull from survival lasers?

I wanted to add some notes for any rookies who tries this build. I made some rookie mistakes and some were not. When you get these parts, first off you may question the colored andonized cap. If you get the Module from DTR with the G2 lens, you can unscrew the focusing lens housing from the module and simply unscrew the chrome looking focus ring and screw the andonized cap on instead but make sure that you get the external lens spring. It prevents you from screwing the G2 lens down too far and damaging the diode. If you get a half length module make sure you are grounded and confirm that it does have a driver (we live in a micro technology age) so it's easy to make this mistake. If you have a contact problem, rather than risking the (driver w/blank battery plate) or blank battery board check your spring height and that your 18650 batteries are button top before considering stretching the spring.

Please read this: Laser hazard distance chart - Laser Safety Facts

Lastly learn what laser beam collimation and divergence is. Tip research the different lens types such as 3 element vs G2.

http://www.maxmcarter.com/lasrstuf/laserrangecalc.html

*If you are simply trying to train for the Jedi Kight accedemy....before you aim any high powered laser up over 5mw question what you will do when you get one aimed back at you! Some of the satellites up there have sensative sensors etc on them. You cost some country a 5 billion dollar sattelite and you may wind up dead! The FDA is not necessarily the enemy. Please consider this before you act like a gun finatic being regulated. In my case don't ask because I am not discussing it.

Shortest distance to space 62 miles up. No way the Receiving lens area is correct but you get the general idea:
Transmitting laser/LED output power (mW) = 200000
Receiving lens area (cm2) = 0.9
Loss adjustment factor = 0.8
Receiver threshold power (nW) = 100
Beam divergence (radians) = 0.0033

Estimated range:

425724 feet
129754.3 m
129.75 km
80.63 miles

and you thought 10w was powerful¿?
