Talking Chromed Aurora SH-032 host - 445nm BUILD!

Sorry for bad pic quality. All were taken with my crap HTC G1 phone camera.


Hey all. Welcome to my build thread about the


Aurora SH-032 Host (by jayrob) !
(click here to see his thread)


Specifications


Diode --------------------- Decanned M140 diode (By DTR)
Driver --------------------- Flex Drive @ 1.4A (By Dr. Lava)
Lens ---------------------- 3 Element Glass AR Coated (By ebay: Techhood)
Batt ---------------------- LI-Ion (generic)


Oh well I choose this host because I liked his "slimness" and chromed looking.
After assembly, it looked so beautiful that I put it inside a little box with some blue paper... for the WOW factor.





It so slim and feel heavy in your hand.. Especially with the copper heatsink.
Compared with unprotected 18650 (and hand):




aight, enuf with da host picz on to the powah






(wrapped the laser in a cloth before clipping the tripod in, to prevent scratching)

According to the PIV curve of the diode, it should be doing 1.5W with the 3-element glass lens.....

Cool !

The Flex Driver was heatsinked with a piece of aluminium from a computer chipset heatsink (notice the lacking "fin"):






Other info:
I had a bad time with the diode. I accidentaly dropped something inside it with the module on while testing, and it baked on the diode can. The output was a blurry, round blue bar. After some months stored, I decided to decan the diode myself.
I had to extract it (without proper tools), decan it (again without tools) and re-insert it inside another module.


Macro picture of the said diode after surgery, inside "aixiz":





The results were astonishing. Clean output and no signs of facet degradation, or any damage at all.


Any opinions or comments are welcome!

Special thanks to: Jayrob, DTR, Dr. Lava and my GF (that helped with macroing ) my mother (see post #3)...

for looking!!!

Wow nice build, mate! I love the shiny hosts with high powered diode, elegant but deadly Great hands you must have as well to remove the diode and decan it without the proper tools!

Thanks for kind words! I love those shiny hosts too...

About the diode and decan:
I thinkered a lot about how to remove the diode from aixiz without tools. Every laser I saw, made me remember of my wrecked diode ... 3 months later, my mother gave the idea to use an old radio antenna (see pic below) as diode pusher...



I broke the antenna into all it smaller pieces and cut a small piece of tube... one of it "tubes" has around 5mm internal diameter... it fits around the diode CAN, and pushes the diode using its base. Using a vice, it came out easily!

Decanning was not that hard. The vice for holding, and a wire cutter plier, with round moves, to decan slowly.

Decanning a diode also increases the power.

For sure! Unfortunately, I'm afraid to remove the lens. The facet and laser die are exposed.
