Default Compatable Hosts?

Hello!

I am not exactly a newbie when it comes to laser building, but I have only worked with drivers that have gone in a pill. I am looking to buy this diode:

https://sites.google.com/site/dtrlpf...w-445nm-diodes

NDB7A75 450nm Laser Diode In Copper Module W/3.5A X-drive & Three Element Lens

I would like to know what hosts can fit the X-Drive, preferably in a ~50$ budget, and I would like it nice and chunky so i can run it for a long time without it heating up too much. Thanks!

Pretty much any host would work, you would just need a battery contact board to wire the driver to. Certain hosts, like the C6, would be more difficult, but doable.

I've got mine encased in a copper heatsink that weighs over a troy lb, and it still gets warm fairly quickly. without active cooling you really cant get a very long duty cycle on these, it's just too much power, these suckers get hot fast

the driver on mine just barely fit in the pill of my Dominator, they are bigger drivers than most. have fun and be safe

How about a custom host? I can build you something nice.

Ehgemus CAN and DOES always have nice builds and his prices are very good, if you have him build something for you, I guarantee a quality professional machined host with this man.

Sincerely investigate any of these three short quotes as new concepts and you've taken your first step into a larger world:

"I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness..." - Max Planck. "Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real" - Neils Bohr. "What we call physical things and events do not exist independently of subjective experience..." - Deepak Chopra.

Each of these three rabbit holes go deep, ending up in the same place.

Useless troll fighting.

Yeah, I think I'm gonna drop this idea and stick to the laser I already have, and just upgrade the host.
