IIRC (please correct me if I'm wrong), the DDL driver has a voltage drop of about 2.25-2.5v, so lets says 2.5v to be safe. The PHR diode needs 4.5 volts, so you need at LEAST 7v to run the diode without damaging it. You could use two 16340 3.6v rechargable, which are 4.2v fully charged. However you don't want the voltage to drop below 7v, because otherwise you can damage the window of your diode, or even LED it. IIRC, the 16340 at full discharge is around 3.2V, so using the DDL driver with only two lithium ion cells is not really safe, you'd want to use three. But the host won't fit three so, in my opinion, you're better off getting a flexdrive and using a 18650 or one 16340.

I need a little help understanding this statement.
"However you don't want the voltage to drop below 7v, because otherwise you can damage the window of your diode."

How does low voltage damage the window of the diode? Is this a Bluray specific problem? Anyway hope someone can enlighten me.

Sorry for the thread jack. I was actually here because i am considering ordering a couple more. I really like the host I have currently. Seeing this set just makes me want to do the same.
