    DTR 20mm Module Heatsinking Capability

    I know, but it's pretty close to te weight os SL's extended and tapered copper heatsink (their biggest one), and a C6 host is quite small, so it has limited potential for heatsinking. I am not very concerned about the duty cycle, as long as it can handle 30-40 seconds of on time. About SL's G2...

    DTR 20mm Module Heatsinking Capability

    Then G2 it is. How much divergence should I get with a G2? Also, is SL's G2 any worse than DTR's? Because it is cheaper if I get it with SL's DTR 20mm module bundle. And I only now thought of it, but is the aluminum back half good enough? Because I can only get the aluminum back half module...

    DTR 20mm Module Heatsinking Capability

    I know, but I really want to make the most of the diode's low divergence, and also to reduce the power so I don't burn down my house by accident.

    DTR 20mm Module Heatsinking Capability

    On second thought, as this will be my first Class 4 laser, I'll use a 1.25A driver and a 3E lens (should be about 1.1W instead of 1.9W), so that I don't accidentally burn my house down or something. That way, it costs pretty much the same for both the 20mm module and the extended and tapered...

    DTR 20mm Module Heatsinking Capability

    It says on SL's product page that it weighs 58g, if I remember correctly. I don't know about the mass of the 20mm module. EDIT: Nevermind, I tried to check the total price with SL's Bargain No Diode Host Bundle instead, and turns out it's actually about 10-15€ cheaper, because of the extra price...

    DTR 20mm Module Heatsinking Capability

    Yes, I am planning to use the 20mm module as a heatsink. But is it a better heatsink than the SL extended and tapered copper heatsink, assuming everything else remains unchanged? I don't know it's weight, but it appears to be just as long.

    DTR 20mm Module Heatsinking Capability

    Hello, I am planning to do a C6 PLTB450B @1.8A build. I am curious about the heatsinking capability of DTR's 20mm modules (the ones with an aluminum back half). Do they provide a better duty cycle than Survival Laser's extended and tapered copper heatsinks? This will be my first build, and I...

    Survival Laser S4X duty cycle

    The same as the one I was initially planning to put in an S4X (PLTB450B @1.25A). Thinking back, I'll use a copper heatsink.

    Survival Laser S4X duty cycle

    UPDATE I am going for a C6 with an aluminum heatsink, so I'll do the build in only a month or two. Thinking better, I like a smaller host better than a bigger one. I might do an S4X build with a 9mm or NDB7475 in a year or two after this one.

    Survival Laser S4X duty cycle

    Don't worry, I am going to buy an Eagle Pair from Survival Laser :)

    Survival Laser S4X duty cycle

    No worries, I'll probably only order the parts around November as my parents will pay for some of the parts as my birthday is in November, and I'll have enough money saved by then. I just want to make sure I make the best choice as it might be my only build (at least until I turn 18, I'm...

    Survival Laser S4X duty cycle

    I meant External and not Extended :oops: I did edit the post though

    Survival Laser S4X duty cycle

    Sorry for the necropost, but I think I'll use a Sanwu G7 instead of a G2 lens. Will the extended lens spring work better with the 9mm lens holder or the 7mm one? And what would the divergence be with a PLTB450B? Hopefully equal to or less than 1mRad. Also, I'll use their M9*0.5 adapter for the...

    Survival Laser S4X duty cycle

    No worries, I still have a LOT of time to decide, as I'm only buying the parts around November or something.

    Survival Laser S4X duty cycle

    Apparently the C6 is also available with an aluminum finish instead of black anodized. The duty cycle should be the same with the C6 and S4, since they weigh pretty much the same, right? If yes, I'll probably just get the C6. If I get the S4X, I'll use a 9mm diode instead. If I get that big of a...
