    You got some pretty big heat sinks. Might have to buy one from you at some point.

    Guidance/Advice On 1.3W 520nm Build

    Great, thanks for clearing that up on the lenses guess I will for sure do the G-2. With the s4x host and extended heat sink I'm sure running it a few minutes at a time won't be an issue.

    Guidance/Advice On 1.3W 520nm Build

    Thank you so much for linking me to that guide that was exactly what I was looking for and brought to my attention the fact I didn't consider using a blank battery contact board. My process should be the same other than the fact the x-drive will already be connected to the diode reducing a...

    Guidance/Advice On 1.3W 520nm Build

    IF you mean setting the current, I am not planning on doing that as I have no experience with it. But if you mean running as in duty cycle I will run it moderately long depending on how hot it gets. Otherwise not sure what you mean, excuse me for my inexperience. Also, would anyone be able to...

    Guidance/Advice On 1.3W 520nm Build

    Those are some nice pictures! Just to be 100% sure, you are referring to the pill option "heat sink aluminum driver pill" as that is the only one that I could see having a shelf like the picture attached. Bad on my part for not exploring the pill options enough. With that shelf I can easily use...

    Guidance/Advice On 1.3W 520nm Build

    After reading up a bit on options for 520nm lasers around 1W I have decided to go the extra step to a NDG7475 diode. Here is a list of everything I am planning to buy: NDG7475 1W 520nm Laser Diode In 12mm Copper Module W/Leads & G-2 Glass lens Link Here S4X™ Host Assembly with Aluminum...

    In Search Of Someone To Build a Handheld Green Laser

    Since you have one could you tell me by any chance if you know what the recommended duty cycle is for you PL-E mini? Otherwise I assume you just play it safe if nothing was provided regarding it when you purchased it.

    In Search Of Someone To Build a Handheld Green Laser

    Yea it definitely looks nice. Thing is is it worth it to go up to $400 to achieve the unlimited duty cycle I am looking for or just settle for something like the PL-E mini from jet lasers that is $270 without being able to run continuous. For me, the continuous duty cycle is a luxury I would...

    In Search Of Someone To Build a Handheld Green Laser

    Well I just came upon the Ple-Mini 520nm 1W laser from jetlasers that goes for $270. For something that is 1w that seems almost too low of a price and I'm sure there are compromises such as the duty cycle which I can't seem to find on their website. Ideally I want something like it not sure if...

    In Search Of Someone To Build a Handheld Green Laser

    First, to address the power supply and wavelength. After looking into it further I can see how 520nm is easier all around and although 1 18650 battery could technically be done 2 seems it is easier. Like I said at the start I am a bit inexperienced on the difficulty of making what I'm asking...

    In Search Of Someone To Build a Handheld Green Laser

    Hello everyone, I have owned 2 lasers for a while now and always have wanted something fairly stronger than my 150mW green one. Unfortunately I have no experience when it comes to building these things and what exactly is involved, nor do I want to risk ruining one attempting to do so. If you...
