Default Star Wars Mini light saber key chain host

So I don't ever post, so anything I might do wrong, just let me know. but anyway, I figured I'd start my 2nd ever laser build with one of these babies.



Lightsaber Keychain Flashlights | ThinkGeek

Has anyone else seen these? I think it'll make a great pen and a nice restart point for my laser hobby. What do you guys think? I was probably going to stop by DTR and get an ol 520nm for luke's saber host to start. Comments, Concerns?

Looks awesome, I plan to use some parts from The Custom Saber Shop at some point, google them.

Concerns,

Oddball battery 1.5 volt button cell x3 . Won't last long and VERY small host.

If you are really good, you can probably build a driver and diode into it, but probably not a Aixiz housing and the heatsink will be all but non-existent.

I'd love to see a full size version of a host similar to that on here. But hasn't happened AFAIK.

A simple hostwith a bottom button could also be dropped into a tubing with the attachments added on the outside that might look similar to what you have but bigger.

Either with a F23 size host (about 1/2 " diameter) or a full size host (about 7/8") With a bigger one you could use a full size heat sink and use a more standard recharageable battery.

You can turn down a module if you have to I've done it a couple of times.

Nice looking little host xenocide. If you're not looking for high power output, you could use a mini 5mW 650nm diode like these HERE.

Here is a LINK that's in that thread to hakzaw's original thread describing these mini diodes.

Edit - These are also focusable, with the focus adjustment screwed all the way in, this module measures aproximately 8mm dia. x 20mm long.

I don't think this would be a good host for anything over 100mw. battery space, space in general, heat sinking and nothing but plastic.. It looks cool but I would say get something a little bigger and not plastic. If you have it already take it apart and post some pics of what it looks like inside. smeerworst that is bad a**. I want one right nowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww thanks for posting that.

Default Re: Star Wars Mini light saber key chain host

Yeah, what I was most concerned about was space. But, as a keychain I wasn't planning on getting more than 10mw from it, probably stop at 5mw so I can safely use around my friends and animals. Thanks for the tips y'all! I'm currently awaiting the parts but I really want to start a sabre collection. But I think next on my list is my old E-Cig host, i think it'd be "almost" too perfect for a host.
Here's a stock img of what I'd be working with.


Thanks again for the feedback!

You could put a 200-300mw red diode in it and run it off a single amc7135, but you would need to make sure the diode isn't case poitive (which a lot of the dvd burner diodes are). Wouldn't have terrifically long run time, but it would be neat

BALLS MAN! Thats so sweet! I might try that, but I'm fairly certain that the ohm reader/low ohm load protector is fragged so I'll be gutting out this mod!

Glad you like them! DTR's store offers those adapters with the 510 type threaded connection, for about every diode he sells. They simply screw on to most any mod.

Here is a LINK that's in that thread to hakzaw's original thread describing these mini diodes.

Edit - These are also focusable, with the focus adjustment screwed all the way in, this module measures aproximately 8mm dia. x 20mm long.
Great idea and will fit perfect in the saber keychain host and easy to wire up.

Aixiz housing won't fit in this saber keychain. So it would get hot in a few seconds and melt the plastic. Would take a great deal of work to get a metal casing inside the plastic and support a 5.6mm diode, IMHO
