Cool FS: Stainless Steel RL-118 Kit!

I made a press fit heatsink for the Stainless Steel RL-118 host for DTR, and he did a tutorial of the build shown here:
Compact 1.5W Stainless Steel RL-118






The kit, will be available with a normal heatsink fit for AixiZ, or a press fit design as well...

For a 445 build, you can get your diode pre-installed into an AixiZ module with lead wires soldered on from daguin or DTR.

In that case, you will just connect your diode leads, to my driver leads... ('Hot' option kit)






It's a great stainless steel host... It's a tad expensive, but as you can see by the pictures, it's a really nice quality host in stainless steel finish. The tail button is also stainless steel!

It has a nice spot for gluing a V5 FlexDrive to the top of the pill with thermal adhesive as shown in DTR's tutorial thread linked above.

It uses an RCR123 battery...

If you will be building a high current build, then you may want to use an AW IMR16340 for handling the high current draw:
AW IMR16340 550 mAh IMR CR123 size LiMN Rechargeable Lithium Battery

But you must be careful about over-discharging the battery. It's not good to let it get below about 3 volts...

Here are some pictures of the host... (using DTR's pictures) Thanks DTR!










'Hot' option:



If you go for a high current build with the driver thermal glued to the top of the pill like DTR did, you will have a very tight build.

You will need to remove the pink triangle on your 445 diode (if building a 445), and clip the pins short, and then bend the wires over 90 degrees. (with heat shrink tubing of course) Bend wires, not pins...

You can also mount the FlexDrive thermal glued, upside down on the inside of the pill. That gives plenty of room for the diode pins!

Otherwise, let me know when ordering if you would rather have the top of the pill drilled out, and mount the driver inside the pill. There will be good room for the pins in that case... (for lower current builds like 12X's)







Fitting the heatsink length, is a very close tolerance. Because the head of the host screws down to hold the heatsink tight, and if it's just a hair too long, there will be a noticeable gap between the head and the host. And if it's just a hair too short, it will be loose.

So for that reason, I need the host 'in hand', and cannot make just the heatsink, without the host...







Kit pricing: (the host is very nice, but is an expensive host)

Without the 'Hot' option, you will be removing the stock driver components, and installing your driver...

* Stainless Steel RL-118 basic kit with aluminum heatsink fit for AixiZ - $59 (specify if you want the pill drilled out or not)
* Copper heatsink upgrade - $8
* Press fit heatsink design option - $7
* V5 FlexDrive 'Hot' option - $48
* Knurled EzFocus adapter - $20
* AixiZ 445 glass lens - $11
* 405-G-1 glass lens assembly - $55
* 650-G-1 glass lens assembly - $52
* Shipping (based on PayPal fees plus postage - send PM for total)
* Shipping policy:

Hope you like it!

Nice Jay. With the amount of requests I have seen for these since I did the review on it I am sure you will be sold out as quick as you can get them. It really is the best quality pocket host I have seen. And that stainless steel click is just takes it over the top.

Yes you found a great host with this one man!

And it's perfect for thermal gluing a V5 FlexDrive to the top of the heatsink as you showed in your tutorial of the build...

I just fit the heatsink, and also offer a 'Hot' option. Which means - driver included, installed, current set...

Proper eye protection needed:
http://oemlasersystems.com/product-c...argon-blue-ktp

You can get diodes at modwerx.com, hightechdealz.com, stonetek.org

And there are a few selling 445 diodes on the forum. daguin, DTR to name a couple.

Send me a private message for ordering a kit!

If you go with Jay's hot kit you will still need a diode, module, battery and lens. Shot you a PM.

but with one cr123a you cant get 2W.. (rare)
DTR got 1.5W with a GOOD cr123a battery
and thats probably the max mA/power you can go with..

Everyone is now calling them 2W because of a handfull that have reached this level but nobody can guarantee they will all hit 2W. So pretty much no matter where you look they will all be the same diodes unless somebody still has some of the disconinued 130 projectors laying around or a refurbed 130/140 units that are now availabe which I would stay away from. I do know there are diodes being sold around from referbed units so be carefull of super deals.


This unit only hit 1.5W because the driver limited it. But if I did find a driver that could take it higher the duty cycle would be shortned greatly.

I ordered some on 4/12, and it usually takes 3 weeks from DX... (that's if they are actually in stock)

So just hoping for the best, it will be early May...

Default Re: FS: Stainless Steel RL-118 Kit!

Yes that diode will work...

I would recommend maybe setting the current to about 800mA's. (for 45 minutes or so between charges)

If you get a 'Hot' option kit, then the only other thing you need, is the battery. And just some soldering skills... (PM for ordering the kit)

In case anybody is looking for this kit, I got 5 of the Stainless Steel RL-118 hosts delivered today...

3 are spoken for, 2 are available at the moment. The kit pricing on these 5, is $5 dollars higher than shown in the first post. (had to pay extra to get these - DHL shipping, etc...)

Got mine today and installed the 445 module from DTR. What a little beauty! Got mine as a "Hot Kit" with V5 flexdrive set at 700mW. Don't have a meter, but Jayrob tells me that this is running at around 600mW output. I also got the EzFocus adapter which adds a nice look and is very convenient! Here are some preliminary pics from my iPhone. Enjoy! Many thanks to the great craftsmanship of Jayrob and great price and shipping of the diode/module combo from DTR.

Great looking build.

I do really like that host. They really are very high quality hosts. Thread tolerances are exceptional, it feels solid and the stainless steel clicky just tops it off.

The entire RL line seem to be very well made. My Frankenstein build was from the RL family. The 118 is not the cheapest compact host but they have great value for the price.

Yes I agree, it's a rock solid little host... Nice find!

FiveForm, good job on the build! Thanks for posting with pictures...



P.S. I ended up getting another 10 of these hosts.

I probably have about 7 left at the moment...
