The heat sinking is a bit of a pain. *There is no "lip" to hold anything in place.

That one was a 405nm diode(PHR) in an AixiZ module, driven by a flexdrive powered by (IIRC) a single 17670. *The module and heat sink material was set into the host with thermal epoxy.

I agree. I think it is one of my coolest builds to date. I only made one of them.

Peace,

Yes. As a flashlight it is very bright. The only weird thing is that it has a cheap compass as the button for the tail clicky. I replaced it with a rubber clicky cover when I built this.

I just sold a matched set (red and violet) made from these. *They are pretty sweet.
