Default ~1.5 watt 445nm C6 Build

Hello, This is my first review, and first build. I hope you like it! I know, it's a cliche build, but its my first, so I decided to review it.

I built 2 of the same lasers. One for me and one for a friend. They are ~1.5 watts each.
I do not have a lpm yet, but plan on getting one. My wallet is crying for help right now

Anyways, they use these parts/components:
Diode: M140
Lens: 3 Element
Host: C6
Driver current: 1.5A
Heatsink: Blue (fit for c6)
Battery: 2x 16340
Duty Cycle: 90 seconds

A big thanks goes out to Survival Laser and DTR. Their packages shipped in 2-3 days!!!

I used tap tape to help the lens stay more still. It works like a charm.

I am estimating the output based on DTR's M140 testing, and how 3 element lenses have about a 30% loss compared to G2.
Pics!

Feel free to give suggestions, and tell me if I missed something.

Congrats on having twins, seriousely though, nice looking 1st builds!
I see that you used tape to secure the lens; this works excellent, but just be sure to keep the tape away from the first couple of threads on the diode end of the lens, this will help keep pieces from getting on the diode window.

I see you live in Ohio, there are a few members not too far away who would probably measure your output if you didn't want to wait on buying your own LPM.

Thanks, I will make sure the tap tape does not go too far down.

Nice job for a first build. One thing you should be aware of, these didoes are ESD sensitive and you should use ESD precautions when handling them. I have an electrostatic matt that is earth grounded and a wrist band that is also. My solder stations are all grounded as well.

Thanks for the heads up, I will definitely buy a wrist band and an electrostatic matt.
