The best solution I've seen so far for powering a LM317 constant current source driving a DIY red is 6 NiMH cells. It doesn't much matter what size cells, so long as they can source 250-300mA. Six 1/3 AA cells will usually fit into a two AA holder. An easy (But more expensive) way to find these locally is to look for cordless phone batteries like this one. But I'm sure there are other battery packs containing 1/3 AA cells.

Simple answer is that they wouldn't.


More detailed answer: We don't know of anyone that has managed this yet. The biggest obstacle would be in getting a reliable regulator of the right size and shape to fit. Suffice it to say, if you want to try and construct a regulator small enough to fit inside the head of a minimag, go for it. It would be an excellent project, especially with so many wanting to use minimags for their lasers!

I did, but I'm sorry to say that I was not at home, and it was a gift for a friend. I used a 10uF Tant. Capacitor, a 1N4001, a 22 Ohms resistor, and a AMC7135 inside the AixiZ module (a bit of a tight fit) . and three 2/3AA NiMH cells from some cordless phone battery to power it.

I'm sure I'll make another like it, and I'll be sure to post a detailed guide when I do.
