Does the output show any increase with the 3.6v batteries?

My guess would be no since the current going to the diode is regulated. But since it is only a guess, I would not try it and besides you would still run the risk of damaging the regulator.

That's not how I remember it...

"If it ain't broke, fix it... and if it still ain't, fix it again..."

;D

[/Threadjack]

I would like to see a measurement of the current usage with 3.6/3.7V rechargeables as opposed to 3.0 primaries.

As RedGreen says, "If it ain't broke, you havent tried hard enough"!

That power pot has a bunch of glue on it -- I'll work on that later but for now, it will focus down to burn skin and out to produce a good beam.

Same here, mine is awesome. The only way I would mod it is if the diode ever burns out, but I think it is going to last for quite a long time

If it ever does burn out I will replace the diode with an open can and replace the driver with a 700ma AMC7135, but cut the current down to 600ma's. This would give an output of ~300mw's I would use 1 protected RCR123 and a dummy cell..and possibly a small peltier to keep it cool...this would be an awesome setup! I think I just got carried away with my thinking..... ;D

cr123a batteries are the longest lasting things i've seen by far, got mine from ebay, i've used the same two in a torch, sentorch, and my waterproof laser and they're still going strong

It's the ***3.6V*** rechargeable CR123A batteries that may need to be avoided.
But there are 3.0V rechargeable CR123A batteries (see below).

I've been using these 3.0V CR123A bateries:

These other DX items relate to 3.0V CR123A batteries:

The ONLY thing you ALL need to know is this : Using rechargeable CR 123 batteries WILL void your warranty That is the info I was given, so I am simply the messenger here I know there are some 3.0v RCR's out there, but the initial voltage spike right off the charger is STILL too high for reliable usage. I would highly recommend just sticking to the standard CR123's - they are NOT expensive bought in bulk, and I have used the Battery station.com no-named ones for years with no issues (Gazoo - I KNOW where you stand on cheap-o batts ) I have never had any Lithium batts pop on me, etc....

is there any easier way to focus the sentorch other than taking a tiny screw driver and slowly turning it?
