If someone is going to spend $20 on a <12mm driver, should it not at least be complete in one piece? Ready to use? I think these tiny pot serves their purpose just fine. If you really HAVE to have your current setting to be perfectly within 15mA, then I suppose there are plenty of other drivers capable of doing so.

I think the purpose of this driver is centered on flexibility in a cost effective package. Something will have to sacrificed to make that happen.
This^ I'll only add that I like to tinker as most of us and having a pot makes you feel like your doing minor surgery... muhaaaa.

Is there a plan to center the output pads along that right side edge?

That was one awesome thing about some drivers from years ago, was that it allowed you to directly attach the driver to a diode, and then neatly screw on the back half of the aixis module over the whole thing.

Remember the rckstr? The flexdrive?

It looks like that giant cap may be difficult to move though.. I don't really know.

Default Re: The Elasti-drive Intro (V1 and V2)

I just want to make a few comments on the driver after actually using it...

I love the fact that I can use many different battery types. It's nice to have options for the power source, which is always an important consideration when assembling a high power portable laser.
The output seems stable and the driver does not produce much heat which is something I appreciate very much.

But there are a couple suggestions that I think would make the driver even better than it already is...

First, I'd really like to see the output pads centered. I really like to hook up the driver directly to the diode since I mostly build compact lasers (usually pens). Unless the diode has long pins it will be difficult to make a direct connection. Using wires can get messy and takes up a lot of space - something which there is not much of in a little pen host.

Making the driver a tiny bit smaller would also be great. I had to file down a little off the sides to get it to fit just right.
Also, I think the big capacitor and the inductor could be moved to also be more centered. This would make it possible to fit the driver into the back of an Aixiz module. I had to make some major changes to the design and assembly of my latest project because the shape of the driver.

Besides the size/shape of the driver and positioning of the components and output pads, I think this is a great driver and I think that future versions will be even better.

Thanks a lot to all who worked on it. I'll look forward to seeing what you have to offer in the future.

One more thing... I still think "Quack-drive" has a better ring to it.

These are the larger versions of the boards that are out in the world right now. 12.68 mm by 9.94 mm...

The mini's will be much smaller, at 9mm by 11.73 mm ... And the output capacitor is a bit smaller, so it should fit correctly in an aixiz module. These will be sold at $15.99. They're going to start being produced in a week, I believe.

Another thing to note, I ALSO finished designing a super small version of the driver, I dub it the Elasti-drive Micro.

Coming in at only 8.69 mm by 11.33 mm, this is literally as small as I can get the driver. However, the price will have to be increased a small amount... since it's hard to source smaller caps in the same capacitances I need for the driver. I also made the output holes into SMD pads, and centered them, so you can easily shove it in an aixiz module and use it in there. And, it's still adjustable!

Quack-drive.... Eh. xD It sounds too cartoony. :P

Quack drive is my vote!
Or you could call it Q-Drive and call the mini version the miQro-Drive lol

I'll be sharing my experience with this driver as soon as I get my diode and can carve out some time in my busy college life
Thanks le Quack

Right... I was aware of the specifications when I purchased it and didn't expect something else. I just wanted to give some feedback as promised. The driver works wonderfully I just over-estimated the space I had to work with.
I think the mini will be better for my more compact projects... I'll look forward to those.

The "micro" version sounds sweet.

Thanks again!

Elasti-drive sounds too much as if you are trying to follow after Dr.Lava and his flexdrive. I think this is a unique driver and it should have a unique name that will make it stand out. Quack-drive although may be cartoony says that its creator is not without a sense of humor. That will draw people to you!

And I get credit for suggesting it originally muahahahaha

P.S. elasti-drive also sounds as if its made of rubber... a bit weird... but the ultimate decision is yours of-course

Ill to him is no ill, but only good in a mysterious form. Losses enrich him, sickness is his medicine, reproach is his honour, death is his gain. No evil in the strict sense of the word can happen to him, for everything is overruled for good. Happy is he who is in such a case. He is secure where others are in peril, he lives where others die.”—Spurgeon
