CL- If you are wanting to build a laser in a flashlight that takes 3 AAAs, buy a few of these, they are the exact same size as an AAA battery, but they put out 3.6v a piece.

You live in the US, so if you bought those batteries right now from that link, you would get them before the circuits came in Plus, those are rechargable.

I couldn't have said it better.

by the time I get these, package/assemble them and ship them off, you will have your DX batteries. dont forget this:

I think I'm ok, but I want to check... These batteries are the same, except higher capacity, so they will be perfectly fine, right?

Default Re: GB CLOSED: DDL driver "plug n' play boards"

what??

why do you need 18650's?? unless you are using 2 at a time, they only have 3.6v and will not work. they re huge however, and are not usually used in pairs..

they are 18mm in diameter (almost 2cm) and 65mm long (like 6.5 cm or so)

if you are looking for AA sized 3.6v batteries, go for 14500's. AAA sized 3.6v = 10440's.

regards,

amk

use 3 10440's, its easier than bridging the last slot.

also, if you use 3 10440's, you can host a blu-ray!

be careful though! 10440's are not protected. so, be sure to charge them on a regular basis, and DO NOT short them out.

Default Re: GB CLOSED: DDL driver "plug n' play boards"

I GOT THE BOARDS TODAY!!


They are SMALL!!! in fact, they are so small, even I was shocked!

everything is perfect, just one thing: the leads on my rectifier diodes were just a bit to fat for the hole. I could try to surface mount the rectifier on your boards, or I could send it to you in your package separate, and you could do whatever you want. it works FINE without the rectifier, except there is no reverse polarity protection. so if you hook up your batteries backwards, the driver wont protect against that.


regards,

amk

Sorry about that... I used the default pads for someone's 1N4001... Apparently not the right ones though.

Amk, if you have any left over, I'd like to buy a couple of unassembled boards and pots from you. Thanx.

actually, it is too late. I assembled em all yesterday and today, and I shipped these out at around 4:00. everyone in the US should have them by around a week or so. non-US, you will have to wait a bit :'( ...


knimrod, I do have some left over, and I could sell you some. PM me. NOTE: after that, no more deals until run 2. so knimrod can get some, nobody else until run 2. (BTW knimrod, I surface mounted the 1N4001's, so I'm ok)

regards,

amk
