Thank you.
I am building complete units for resale!!! Prices wil vary depending on diode\driver\battery combo! I will offer two styles with several options ie; Two styles of Mini Maglights, battery choices (two 3.6v, two 6v, one 6v, one 3.6v or two 3.6v rechargable with charger) and two different styles of tail switches. I incorporated the lens housing to act as a adjustment dial for the laser's focus! I custom make my own copper heatsinks as well as rewire and redesign the circuitry of the Maglight itself! I have taken some photos and will upload them to Photobucket I will also upload some videos of the design and working models to Youtube soon! I have been busy looking for suppliers and with doing some testing and manufacturing, I do have working models but it will take me a few weeks to have enough ready to advertise them for sale. My email is available here if anybody is interested! I can also do custom applications.

This is the newer style led Maglight with a Brand New closed can diode rated at 300mW (That's pulsed) Rkcstr V3 Microdrive set to 330maH using two 3.6v non rechargables and Kroll clickie style tail switch, laser lens is fully adjustable by twisting the Maglight lens ring, lens caps included! $125.00 Plus Shipping (around $12.99)


All models except this one will be LOC diodes or Bluray for maxiumum burn! Contact me to place a order in advance, and thanks for reading!

Videos of this unit in action!

Not bad..........

I have a few questions.

1. would you be willing to submit an example of your work to a veteran forum member for unbiased examination, testing and review??

2. what brand & model of laser power meter do you use for the calibration process?

3. what is your warranty period after purchase?

4. do you accept paypal so if the buyer feels that his or her purchase is not what they bargained for they can file a legitimate dispute to recover funds??

5. what county is your business license filed in for review??

Thank you for your time.

Thank you! And here are a few answers to your questions.

1. Outsider testing and review performed by a reputable knowledgable person could help boost sales. These are costly to produce so I would have to send a demo to somebody who has a reputable and trustworthy name in this market. Basically with the proper credentials yes it is possible!

2. I adjust drivers to output the recommended maH according to the specific diode manufacturer's ratings for OPTIMAL OUTPUT. They still work very well and its much better on your diode and driver. They have a estimated mW for various currents, I will set drivers for LOC diodes at 420maH and use glass lenses.
Red Open Can specs: 660Nm
Average outputs:
* 360mA = 220mW
* 390mA = 235mW
* 420mA = 250mW
* 435mA = 265mW
* 460mA = 275mW- 280mW
I know various things can affect the total overall output and a meter would be a factual gaurantee of mW. I will purchase a meter if this goes full scale.

3. If your not satisfied and it still works 30 days no questions asked! Beyond that I am still working on a warranty that will protect the buyer as well as myself! If it is mistreated it will break as with any sensitive instrument and I want to research into how I can diagnose failures. I will refund 100% for any defect in design or manufacturing failures on my part. What if you break it? I will offer repairs for any user damaged units. (parts and reduced labor) I will provide a written gaurantee as a PDF and a paper copy that will accompany each unit. I will provide full details when I make these available!

4. I only accept PayPal for the convienance and for the security is provides buyers. I have a E-Bay account with 100% positive feedback as a seller and buyer. eBay My World - rgio6006

5. I make these in my spare room I have no licensed bussiness. I live in Ohio USA, my state does not require small bussinesses to be licensed or insured.

I have taken some photos of the construction of design 1, design 2 still needs documented and all photos uploaded to Photobucket. This is time consuming but it will be done before I start sales. I will show all the internal workings and design of each style. I am proud of my reenginering of Maglights design and want to show it off! I have many years of uncertified expierence in this field. My job requires alot of technical and engineering data and many one of a kind designs! These designs must be documented and blueprinted then submitted and approved by the state before use.

The diode and driver is the actual weak link, my design changes are rock solid and tested. I killed many good diodes in destructive testing.

If you want you can send me all the needed parts and I will assemble one for you to test out! At the moment I have a few local orders to fill as well as my annual training for work coworkers = Potenial buyers!
If demand grows I will need to outsource somewhat, these are time consuming to build and I could not supply a high demand at this time. I only posted this because I had seen somebody had inqiured about a seller of completed units or a assembler that could put this together for them!
If you have the ability I will show my design at a later time and feel free to copy it for personal use. I can show you a very solid way to modify a MiniMaglight to accomadate any battery choice as long as its diameter is no bigger than a AA, how to make a decent heatsink for $3.50 and how I use the Maglight lens ring as a adjuster for the laser lens.

Thanks for your interest and rsponse!

That was a very well thought out answer, and I like what I just read.

I was testing the waters here, we have had way too many scammers and rip off artists plague this forum, One even burned me recently, he hired me to do a couple builds for him, and after I drove around, bought parts and began work, he got banned from the forum, and subsequently filed a paypal dispute before the work was even finished!

I would also be kinda worried about abuse of product after purchase, every day someone posts about dropping lasers, burning the lens with a match, crap like that.

My business licenses are on file at the county building, since my local customers usually make the checks out to "Omnitech" or "Rocky Roost" so I have to comply with local codes, and banks won't let you have an account in the name of the business without one.

Good luck with your endeavors, just make sure your lasers comply with CDRH code, or uncle Sam may get upset.

Thanks again! It is a very hard to figure out a fair warranty for these I intend to simplify that process by using all new parts. Drivers will be purchased directly from the manufacturer(rkcstrV3)(flex boost drive V5) I am looking for a supplier of new LOC diodes I make a pretty good living at my day job and work only 6 months a year, after several offers to buy my laser I figured manufacturing and selling small quantities could fund this hobby for me. I don't plan on selling thousands of units. (I would of course)
I do need some help however, I am in need of class 3b warning labels in silver and small enough to fit on a Maglight as well as a supplier for NEW LOC diodes. Anybody know where I can find these needed items?
Well thanks again for your interest and advice it is greatly appreciated.
