Default My 445nm Build (pic heavy)

Thanks to Jayrob's >>18650 kit<< and drlava's excellent >>Microboost driver<< ive constructed this little fella..

The machining on the 18650 kit is fantastic. I opted for the press fit and ez-focus options, so no silly Aixiz lens poking out the front, and now the unit looks like a shop bought laser.

Some pics.

And FYI the driver is set to about 1000Ma maybe even 1100Ma.

The finished article




Close up



Another close up, showing the cavity...ez-focus removed



The gratuitus burning shot



A similar shot showing the importance & effectivness of GOOD laser goggles



A sacrificial mobile phone with plenty of 445nm scars



Smokey



Shot with the goggles




Thanks for your time, and to Jayrob and drlava for the parts.

No offense but
MA= Mega Amper
mA= milli Amper
Ma= ?
Nice build, I have ordered mine I wish it will be the same as yours
Was it easy to assamble?

None taken, ive met more pedantic people....but not many.

MA= Mega Amper
mA= milli Amper
Ma= Milli ampere (to 99.9999999 of the people, given the context it was taken from)



I'm now running it way over spec at around 1200 milliamperes and it doesnt even break a sweat, and a doddle to build, you'll have no problem.

Default Re: My 445nm Build (pic heavy)

I am an electric engineer, and I don't like seeing Ma as milliamperes. Milliamperes is mA.
I only wanted to correct it. Saying again, no offense.
