Cool 2w 445nm build (first build)

i got a little lazy on the picture taking cause i was too focused on putting it together.

2w 445nm diode in 12mm M140 module with X-Drive and G-2 Glass lens.

Originally meant to power it with dual 18350's, but radioshack screwed me over. Purchased 18350s with button tops so i lost $40 and theres a NO RETURN policy.... So i went with RCR123A 3.7V (all i could find).

M140 Module with X-Drive showing

Blank battery contact board screwed into host

lead wires from diode clipped (should have clipped them even shorter, but it worked)
2w 445nm build (first build)-img_4174.jpg

soldering arrangement
2w 445nm build (first build)-img_4176.jpg

i soldered everything off camera. Screwed it together and put batteries in.

this beam was NOT brought out with fog.

This was shined through the side of a glass table.

DO AS I SAY NOT AS I DO.

Wear safety glasses guys. My buddy didnt believe me that it was dangerous to look at the dot.... lets just say, he didnt look directly at the dot so his peripheral vision went blind for about 15 minutes.

Nice, sure is a good feeling at first light up after putting the pieces together
You just have a few terms backwords that might cause some confusion.
The diode is the M140 2W. The module is just a 12mm module that can take other diodes.
Why wouldn't the 18350 button tops work? That's what you asked for. I don't see them being to wide or long?
Be careful like you said and being you took beam shots in a car? with a black interior and reflecting windows could lead to disaster

Even worse, the beamshot that says "not brought out with fog" seems to have been taken in a moving vehicle on a public roadway. Going by the motion blur occuring to the background, the view in the side mirror clearly showing storefronts and the roadsigns.


My buddy didnt believe me that it was dangerous to look at the dot.... lets just say, he didnt look directly at the dot so his peripheral vision went blind for about 15 minutes. And that.

IMO, not the best safety practices all in all.

DO AS I SAY NOT AS I DO.
Nope, won't do as you do. Especially when others' safety is at risk.
I highly suggest reading up on laser safety and getting in line for some of that rare stuff called "common sense".

Nice first build. Lot of the people here including myself started with a c6 m140 build. It gives you the fundamentals of how things go together. Welcome and enjoy and be safe.

Ps ( it is your laser, just like a gun, your responsible for when/where the bullet/beam goes. Accidents do happen and the learning curve is real, so let's learn quick so we can enjoy and safely use our workmanship. So once again enjoy and be safe.)

Pss, nice pics

Verry nice work ---- good pictures!

Safety first--use proper safety procedures and goggles at al times.

If people around you or wtih you will not wear goggles--don't show it to them running--simple.

I offered him glasses but he wouldnt wear them. I only had one pair that why i said do as i say not as i do. Dont act like its my fault when i warned him.

Yes it was in a moving vehicle, it was in traffic too, hence the reason i pointed it down to the floor so it wouldnt shine at anybody.

I have one pair of goggles, but he wouldnt take them. I was offering them to him and i wasnt gonna wear any, but i wasnt gonna look. Thats why i said 'not as i do' cause i wouldnt have had a pear to wear.

furthermore, dont be an ass. He didnt listen to me so it hurt his vision, not my fault. Like i said 'do as i say not as i do' is cause he would have my safety glasses to wear and i wouldnt have any so i wasnt gonna look at what he was doing, but he didnt want to do that.

Congratulations on the build. I was wondering how the batteries didn't work for you as well. $40.00 seems like a lot for two 18350s. Why can't you use them and why can't you return them?

The batteries have little buttons on the positive terminal that cant be taken off safely. furthermore, radioshack has a "no return' policy. They were $20 a set and i got 2 sets (so 4 batteries total).
