Default Some of my HOST ideas (picture heavy)

I've been surfing the Internet, looking around to see what sort of flashlight-based host I'd like to put my first build into. And I've found a LOT of possibilities.

I wanted to provide the list to all members here in case you see something interesting that you'd like to try.

Disclaimer: I'm not sure if these hosts would have enough room inside for the Aixiz + driver + batteries. This is just a list of ideas. I do not own any of these to take measurements. And some of these hosts may be repeats of hosts used for builds on LPF already.

I have not included O-like or Rayfoss or DX in this list, because I'm sure all of you are familiar with their hosts already.


LEDshoppe:

New Design 3AAA/CR123A CREE Flashlight:


RC-B3 AAA CREE LED Flashlight:


Adjustable Focus 5W LED flashlight:


RC-F7 AAA CREE LED Flashlight:


RC-C6 CR123A Adjustable Focus CREE LED flashlight:


Rechargeable 18650 LUXEon 3 Watt Flashlight Set:



StreamLight:

Buckmasters Twin-Task 2L:

(mmm.... camo)


Surefire: (These flashlights are stupidly expensive, but I really love this one!)

V2 Vampire Dual-Spectrum LED:




UltraFire (WhaFat Technological Co.,Ltd): No direct links here, but you can find them on their website. I think some are popular hosts already. Slow loading....

RL-2088:


502B:


C7:


G4:


501B:


A2 stainless steel:


C6S:


A3:


A6 STAINLESS STEEL:


WF-505B:


WF-602C:


WF-503B:


WF-602F:


M1Q5:




Wal-Mart:

This one reminds me of a Lightsaber!
Brinkmann Tuff Max Inspection Flashlight:


Armor Max 60 Lumens LED 1AA Flashlight:



Lowes:

Task Force 9X LED Flashlight:

$14.97

MegaBRITE AquaMax Self Powered Waterproof LED Flashlight:

$18.97


Harbor Freight:

Tactical Flashlight:


3-1/2" Nine LED Flashlights, 2 Pack:



Dollar Tree and Deal$ stores:

It might be ugly, but it's CHEAP!
Easy-Grip Black Flashlights, 6":



Home Depot:

8 LED Flashlight w/ Laser Pointer and bonus 9 LED Flashlight:

$4.88

Strait-Line 30 Ft. Laser Level: (It rotates 360 - could be interesting?)

$14.99



Well, that's all for now. I'll probably add to this post as I find more. Thanks for looking, and I hope one of these will make a good host for my (and your) project.

If you know for a fact that a particular host definitely IS or IS NOT suitable to be a laser host, please let everyone know in this post.

Thank you!

Some of those are pretty interesting. You weren't kidding about the image heavy part. Hahaha.

Oh and a good amount of those look like some of Jayrob's kits. If you like the one's you've posted you should check his out. He does fantastic work.

Remember to always practice good safety habits when using any laser. And never point it at a plane and/or any flying object. You're just asking to go to jail if you do that.

Thanks everyone. I guess it could be a nice all-in-one-place kind of reference thread. Like I said, when I find more, I'll add to my post.

Yeah, I imagined a green beam coming out of that one, reflecting off the silver "wicked" head. I bet that would be awesome!
