Default OK I am confused!

So I started to read about using my HD DVD players laser in a BIC light (AKA Kip Kay). Then I came across the flames about him and then found a few other designs and plans after searching a bit more. My question is this: Whos plans should I follow?

Any ideas?

Phil

Default Re: OK I am confused!

The thing that has me with KipKay is only the "box" it is in. I don't want to use any other type of media. As long as I can fit large enough components to do the job in a lighter like that. That would be my ultimate goal.

First there is this list needed:

[table]
[tr][td] Component [/td][td] DigiKey [/td][td] RadioShack [/td][td] Approximate Price [/td][/tr]
[tr][td] Capacitor [/td][td] 1 2 [/td][td] 1 [/td][td] ~ $1 [/td][/tr]
[tr][td] LM317 [/td][td] 1 2 [/td][td] 1 [/td][td] ~ $2 [/td][/tr]
[tr][td]Potentiometer [/td][td] 1 [/td][td] 1 [/td][td] ~ $1 [/td][/tr]
[tr][td] Resistors [/td][td] 1 [/td][td] 1 [/td][td] Pennies [/td][/tr]
[tr][td]Silicon Diodes [/td][td] 1 [/td][td] 1 [/td][td]Pennies[/td][/tr]
[tr][td][/td][td][/td][td][/td][td][/td][/tr]
[tr][td][/td][td][/td][td][/td][td][/td][/tr]
[/table]

Then this one

1-Adjustable Voltage Regulator LM317T
1- 100 ohm Potentiometer
2- 10 ohm Resistors
1- 1N4001 Rectifier Diode
1- 47uf 35v Capacitor
1- Any Size PCB Board
1- Any Solder
1- Any Soldering Iron
1- Power Switch (I like momentary push buttons)
1- 12x30mm Aixiz laser housing Click Here
2- Spools of wire ( Red and Black )
- You will need at least a 6 volt Power source.

I see the similarities in both designs but when looking up parts and seeing the images of the parts they are not same as in other pictures describing this build.

I have this in my shopping cart

1 2 P836-ND CAP ALUM 47UF 35V 20% RADIAL
2 2 478-1911-ND CAP TANT 47UF 16V 10% RADIAL
3 2 LM317TNS-ND IC REG POSITIVE ADJ TO220-3
4 2 LM317LZNS-ND IC REG POSITIVE ADJ TO92-3
5 2 3319P-101-ND TRIMMER 100 OHM 0.2W TH
6 5 3.9H-ND RES 3.9 OHM 1/2W 5% CARBON FILM
7 5 1N4001DICT-ND RECTIFIER 50V 1A DO-41

I already have the blue laser from my old 360 hd dvd drive. Should there have been a driver on that? I only took the laser part. I still have the leftovers.
