Default Planning on first 445nm Build

diode + axiz $60 - HighTechDealZ - 445nm 1W (1000mW) Blue Brand New Laser Diode in Aixiz Module

housing + heatsink + module $20 - The Blue M host and heatsink combo - just add diode and driver [Blu_M] - $19.99 : StoneTek Electronics, Your Laser Parts Store

OR (if that doesnt work)

mxdl $12 + heatsink $30 = $42

glass lens - hopefully less than $10 on ebay

driver - would a ddl driver with a 1.2 ohm resistor work for 445nm?

batteries - 2x10440's (already have)

** BASICALLY, im like looking to build the cheapest handheld 445nm if any if you guys have any suggestions or other ideas please post

thanks

2 10440s wont be able to power up ur 445 efficiently...well it always depends on the current ur going to aim for but id say that anything above 400mA with 2 of those isnt that good...

mine at 1A with 3 has problems keeping it juiced...

Default Re: Planning on first 445nm Build

You can't just add another battery in series and not worry about current that batteries can give.
I'd never make 445nm build and use 10440 batteries.
If I couldn't afford expensive driver then I'd use 2x18350 batteries and Lm317 chip.

But even then, you have cheap boost drivers that can give more than 1A to diode with only one 18650.

XD, it will not fit two 18350's. It holds one 18650 or one 22600 and will not supply the correct voltage for a LM317. I sent you a very detailed PM.

If it fits one 18650 then it will work with two 18350. But two batteries will be a bit longer (few millimeters) then one 18650.

Default Re: Planning on first 445nm Build

so 3x10440 won't be enough to power it? or it just won't last very long

i am willing to buy some 18350s

but what about 16340s? i found this sick deal http://www.dinodirect.com/trustfire-...batteries.html

thanks everyone, this was just like the time when i was planning to use a 9V with my phr =]

kk i dont have my batteries yet so i can't try it yet and my glass lens

how would i use my 10440 batteries ( i only have 2 ) to test my 445nm
like making a spacer between the 3xAAA catridge

oh and i dont have my lens yet ... but i got my goggles ! =]
