    The Little Diode That Could

    You know, I have replaced all the bulbs in the house to led. Only had one so far fail prematurely. The rest have been going strong for around 3 to 4 years now.

    The Little Diode That Could

    I thought this little diode would have popped years ago. It is annoying at times because I would really like to use that socket! But when i really stop to think about that familiar glow in the kitchen going dim... I get mixed emotions. It has become a member of the family at this point! It...

    The Little Diode That Could

    Here we go again. Another year (almost), and another update! This diode refuses to die. We are at 42,625 hours and counting!

    Where do we get batteries these days?

    Double post trigger warning. Here's a place i found. https://liionwholesale.com/collections/batteries?page=1 The selection is limited but their prices looked nice. Wow! Thanks bowtie!

    Where do we get batteries these days?

    I hadn't seen them. Sad to see lighthound go. Thats where I got my 10180... haven't even found another. It is a tiny little battery. About a year ago I intended to get back into lasers, i have 2 builds that just need diodes and i bought out stock of 120 heatsinks... just havent pulled the...

    Where do we get batteries these days?

    Hey guys, I've been away for some time now. I went to lighthound and they're gone! Where are the hip kids in the know getting their electrons? But seriously, I am building a small robot and weight and size are both a factor, I have a tiny one that could work but i need 12v so one isn't even...

    The Little Diode That Could

    It hasn't been quite 4 years yet, but if I don't update the post now I'll forget. As of now, the diode has been running for 34,893 hours! I did have a scare a few months ago. There is a vase with faux flowers in it that sits next to the diode. It had gotten bumped and the petal of one flower...

    Post Your GUN (PICS)

    Not exactly a picture, but I'm looking for a flashlight mount that can mount to a rail with windage and elevation adjustment. Anyone seen anything like that? I've found one but it wasn't universal and could only work with one specific flashlight.

    The Little Diode That Could

    Benm, I hope it makes some kind of record but as of now I can only claim second longest continuously run diode. Styropyro has a thread with a much nicer diode that lasted 54,000 hours. It was just shy of 6 years. But since his experiment has come to a close, maybe this could hold the record for...

    The Little Diode That Could

    27,764 hours and still looks as bright as day one. OP updated. We've now ticked past 3 years by 2 months! Every now and then I point it at a wall across the room in amazement. I can't believe it's still going. DJNY, we've now exceeded your prediction. Predictions are now open again, who wants to...

    Javalin's Collection

    Thanks, that wasn't meant to be the final colour. But I didn't want to spray olive drab on black, it would make it too dark. So that's the base you see. Just haven't gotten around to mixing up the right colour or adding the yellow lettering that the M67s have.

    Javalin's Collection

    OP updated with build thread links. They all have beam pictures except for the 473. I'm not sure how 3 years have passed and I didn't get a single one. Ah yes all in good time. This build is several years in the making and has gone through many many revisions. I think I've built all the tools...

    Javalin's Collection

    Up front is our PLE-473 in a custom leather holster. Next is the Pman special in 532. I can't believe I never made the build thread for this. I still have the pictures in photo bucket though so if there's any interest I'll write it up. Beam shot: The smallest laser gun in the world...

    Post your pics of unique builds no-one else has

    Thanks, speaking of ray guns... this ought to qualify for this thread. The smallest raygun I've seen yet.

    This is my son's 532. He calls it the Green Angel.

    The Little Diode That Could

    The thing is, i hope it lives for many years. But I need it in a spot I see everyday so i know when it dies. The problem is, it's taking up a valuable plug next to the sink. Is it too much to ask to run the juicer and have the scentsy plugged in at the same time! ? As mentioned in a...

    The Little Diode That Could

    22,631 hours of continuous light. That's 2 years and 7 months. Why won't this thing die!? DJNY's is the only guess that is still hasn't come to pass i think.

    LPF's Religion

    Actually this is from post one on this thread: NUMBER ONE RULE: DO NOT challenge other members' beliefs in this thread. You are free to comment, but you know when it's stepping out of line. This thread started as a poll. Not a debate. So, no I wouldn't say it's the topic of this section. I...

    LPF's Religion

    To all who like to carry on this discussion, I'd like to post an excerpt from the book of John chapter 10. 24 So the Jews gathered around him and said to him, “How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly.” 25 Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not...

    Anyone in the Oklahoma City area?

    Thanks, I figured I'd be alone out here.
