Default flashlight hack confusion

I watched a video of a jayrob flashlight build. the person used the host flashlight and broke off all the parts on a circuit board called a driver. I'm assuming this is just to pass voltage without any metering.

Then a flexdrive was installed. is this the new new voltage regulator? and if so, how do you know which one you need? I assume you match it to your diode, but from what i've seen many laser diodes can run on multiple power ranges for differnet life spans. Do you just find one you like in a matching voltage?

I also read somewhere one a diver manufactures site, you have to disable some capacitor on any driver to prevent overloading. That sounds dumb to me. Why build it to be disabled. Are there things that must be broken to build a laser?

don't be a troll. Not everybody is as good at finding exactly what they need as you may be.

I've been reading and trying to understand and all I ask is that you share what you know if you want. If not, then leave me alone.

furthermore I've never hacked electronics before and if i'm going to spend hundreds of dollars on a build I want to be sure my info is right, and not just somebodies wrong information.

Lastly lasers are dangerous so I consider is something i'm not qualified to become an amateur, let alone an intermediate builder without others help.

Oh and what if I screw up and my lithium powered laser becomes a small pipe bomb. What about that.

You know what i'm not taking the risk.
