Re: Laserpointer building questions (GD300)

They seem to carry all the same stuff the Chinese eBay sites do, only much more expensive. 2.99 lbs sterling for a chrome plated brass module is a lot more than \$2.00 each. If you have no problem with the Chinese stuff getting through you might want to just go to the source.

That host does indeed look good. Sadly it doesnt use 18650, but i could work around that.

The case doesn't seem to have a name that i could google with, does anyone know of 'real' pictures of that host?

Re: Laserpointer building questions (GD300)

Not sure, but I've seen them around, you may want to look at sites like Fasttech, Banggood, or Gearbest for that style, or something that you may like even better!

Edit: If you like that style host from Odic Force, but want 18650 size, here is one from "Kaidomain", a real similar, good looking host.

Re: Laserpointer building questions (GD300)

But thats a flashlight host. Unless theres a simple trick to convert them into an Laserpointer host i don't see how that would help me. :?

Re: Laserpointer building questions (GD300)

That is exactly what many, if not most handheld lasers are made from, if not purchased as a complete unit from a company.
Some members make purpose built hosts for a laser module, but thay are basically the same as a flashlight host!

Look through the builds from members here, and see how they make a heatsink to fit these type of hosts.

Here are a couple that I made from flashlight hosts,
"Solarforce T2" flashlight host, and the "Conehead".

Re: Laserpointer building questions (GD300)

Yes, but those are A. not cheap. B. custom made by people from the USA. So sadly not an option.

Re: Laserpointer building questions (GD300)

It looks like you have a couple of options, go with that Odic Force unit, even though it's not 18650, or probably easier, take a look at these 301-303 style lasers from Sanwu laser.
Those are about as reasonably priced as you're going to get.

Re: Laserpointer building questions (GD300)

@ day, forgive me for butting in, but if your worried about problems with shipping. As Bowtie mentioned Sanwu has a 301-303 style, that might fit your needs (or whatever style you choose) The thing about Sanwu is, for whatever reason, if it doesn't get delivered Sanwu will resend another unit at no cost. I believe Jetlaser does the same thing.

Send Sanwu a pm/email and ask, once they confirm, it should make you breathe a little easier. Hope it helps

Re: Laserpointer building questions (GD300)

Agreed, Bob, thanks for adding that guaranteed delivery point, that is another reason why someone like Sanwu would be a good choice in this case, they're reasonably priced, and the company isn't located in the US.
We'll see; I've exhausted my ideas, maybe someone else has some other thoughts.

Your welcome Bowtie, we're just trying to give some honest advice and let the chips fall where they may. ( hopefully with another laser hobbyist ).
