Default Looking for the shortest laser I can find.

I'm planning a build that requires a host that is no more than 1.5" long and .5" wide; if necessary, some parts could hang out of the host. Does anyone know where I could find, or how I could build, such a laser? I'd prefer it if the beam were visible, but if that's not possible, I'll be alright.

Default Re: Looking for the shortest laser I can find.

That's tiny, what kinda diode/driver/module are you going to be using?

That's just ever so barely enough to fit a 12mm module, but isn't even as long as a 10440 cell. What kinda battery(ies) are you going for? button cells?

Unless this isn't high powered, such as a presentation pointer. If not, there's already keychain pointers that are just about the size you mentioned maybe smaller.

Adjusted 30mw 650nm Red Laser Diode Dot Line Cross Module w/ Driver In 3-5V | eBay - Was thinking something along these lines.

Button cells are preferred; and I'd like the power high enough to be able to see the beam, but not powerful enough to burn anything.

Is this one small enought for you--286mW red?? See: http://laserpointerforums.com/f64/fs...red-48899.html



PS Don't post multiple threads on same topic---you already have another one running --frowned upon--waste of LPF bandwith

I have seen that one, but the price scared me away.

And what do you mean? My other post was made regarding a green laser.

Scared you? Is pretty much as good as it gets--286mW red, good battery, small durable host----not sure if the host is still available--you would be lucky if he has a few left.

Is not likely you can do any better than that---is a quality pointer, high output, good battery,durable Ti host, small form factor.

Green? Not that one-lol >>>this one You say "small build red" post #3 here: http://laserpointerforums.com/f50/wh...am-100057.html

Anyway --good luck

PS maybe you can figure out how to put a laser diode in this 1.47 inch Streamlight host or see if "jarob" who designed the micro TI pointer can modify for you--see: https://www.amazon.com/Streamlight-7...1R3VANA6ES9XK5

He had to find really small LiPo batteries that fit in the actual ring part of the ring. Not sure where he found them.

I've built a laser in to a host just like that one, it wasn't Streamlight branded, but the same design and size.
The ones I built probably aren't really what the OP is looking for since mine used one of those small, cheap <5mW 650nm modules that are about $2 ea.
Here's a -Link- to the thread I made on my build a long time ago.

Default Re: Looking for the shortest laser I can find.

I think I've decided upon buying a diode/driver/module from DTR, fitting that into a heatsink, and attaching it all to a 16340 battery.

Could someone link me to that thread? I scoured the forums for it and couldn't seem to find it.

Really don't understand what thread you want?
