Talking DX SuperFire C1 Cree (picture overload)

I bought this flashlight a couple weeks ago and thought it would make a good lookin laser
DealExtreme: $18.98 SuperFire C1 Cree Q5-WC 230-Lumen LED Flashlight with Assault Crown and Clip (1*18650/2*CR123A)
it's a great flashlight, bright as hell, long battery life (with these DealExtreme: $4.49 TrustFire Protected 16340 3.6V 880mAh Lithium Batteries (2-Pack Grey)) but the only thing i can find that's bad about it is the crown, its a little sharp, and this heats up pretty quick

pictures:

custom heat sink i made
some lens i got out of a old laser, it makes a really tight beam. about 2mm
reflector of the flashlight
LED
LED driver

comparing:

both shining about... 20 yards, or 18.2 meters


my blu ray is a phr running at 102mA with a rkcstr driver. powered by the cr123 3.6V protected batteries, they charge to about 4V though

overall a really good flashlight and a easy host for a laser.. enjoy

thanks

im not sure if it can open em but its made for defending yourself so i bet you could pry it open.. it came with a smaller plastic piece that screws into where the crown is so it'll look like a normal flashlight, but i dont think it looks as good. the only problem with the crown is getting your fingers past it for focusing.. i usually just take it off to focus the beam the put it back on

should have come with a plastic ring too... but anyways, where did you get that laser housing that fits in a p60 light? I have that exact flashlight (except different words) but didn't come with a p60 laser sink

ahh.. i marked the schematic with sharpie since a couple lines crossed. its this http://makezine.com/images/14/evasivediagram.gif

it just makes a really high pitch noise. your ears can barely hear it so people can't find where its coming from easy. i never got it working, i tried 4 times
