    my laser lost all power

    What were you powering it with before you got your charger? You might have fried it by letting the batteries run too low. 1.1W takes a lot of power to run.

    Particular Requirements on IR Project

    I believe to do this trick, you would need an FDA variance for each show. You are going to need way more then 5mW and you are putting on a public performance. Look on Magic Tricks & Street Magic.Learn Card Magic Secrets - Magic Shop You might find a better (and less hassle-free way of doing...

    Bleeder resistor on DDL

    The only way I would do this is; the umbilical cord must be soldered on both ends. (non-removable) Pin connectors are to way too subject to momentary opens and continuity changes. Laser diodes are too sensitive to have anything except a well soldered connection. Also, the wires used in the...

    18650 Battery question.

    Most protected ones say so on the case, also they are a couple mm longer then a unprotected one. And I've seen protected ones be slightly larger in diameter also. They would not fit into the host, where a unprotected one would. (rare case, I'm sure)
