    2 newer builds using less common batteries

    This build has the largest heatsink in my collection made by Rich. Its an aluminum shell with a copper core. The focus ring has been threaded for a Sanwu beam expander. The diode in this host is a NUBM07 with the stock can intact. Its powered by the Blackbuck 8 amp driver, 2 26350 batteries, and...

    [Resolved]Blackbuck 8a v2 issues

    I have gone through 3 of these v2 drivers in a row. Anyone else having issues with the new version? First one I was getting nothing on the output. Second one let out the smoke and the third one no output. These are supposed to be set at around 1.7A default. No issues setting these up when I had...

    2000 mAh 26350 2C continuous

    Not my pic https://m.fasttech.com/p/5363800 Ordered these a few weeks ago and had a go with them. The height measures right at 35mm. They seem like a good alternative to 18350's and the sleeve. Maybe a custom blue or green PL E Pro in the shorter host? Single cell style MX900? Just thought I...

JST connectors to reduce the amount of times I am soldering on the driver. 26650 cell. Heatsink made by Lifetime17...

    First purchase from LPS 532's

    I picked up some budget lasers from our newest site advertising Laser Pointer Store. This will be quick with pics. Thor H 200mw 532nm laser Pen LPM graphs. I'm pretty happy with my purchase after contacting the company. I've come to expect issues like this with 532 pointers of this...

    Sanwu Spiker disassembly

    I want to know how the copper module should be removed from the spiker. I don't want to twist and tangle wires or rip diode pins off. Does the contact board have to come off to desolder or is there something more clever happening in there?

    Forum changes

    I had a display mode setup that reduced the amount and size of the garbage deadline ads and yesterday it has somehow been reset. I do not see the option panel for this setting either. Could an admin please explain what's going on or tell me what I screwed up. I can't stand the forum as is with...

    Quick build mini Cree A type m140/flexdrive 1.4a/1.5w g2

    This is a host kit by Lifetime17. Nice little host. Heatsink dictates the duty cycle at about 1 minute. I don't mind my m140's getting warm or a little hot they are tough. Its nice to see so much beam from such a small host. Nothing complicated with the wiring and fits a full sized module with...

    4 16000mah 6s lipos

    I recieved 4 of these monster sized lipos from work. They were used in an S900 drone that we used for topographic survey mainly scheduled quantity visits. The drone decided to end its life while about 200 feet in the air. Out of the 6 batteries I have the 4 that are in good shape. Less than 10...

    Sanwu spiker 465nm 4000mw overview

    I bought the spiker a few days ago and recieved it today. It is a very well made host. Perfect threads, no scratches, heavy. It was shipped with a cover lens screwed into the BE threads. I had some issues with the output and removing the outer shipping lense fixed the initial issue I had. I also...

    XPL 310 plug and play

    I have repurposed this $100 host (310 model 200mw 532nm) from XPL. I spent a few hours tinkering with different approaches. Between the facial gestures and the right combination of cussing at this thing I found my way. First step was to see if the spring connection pot could handle my solder...

    PWM modulation

    I experimented with a m140 module with driver in a 22mm heatsink. I hooked it up to a PWM box mod and saw the dimming effect I was looking for when I adjusted the potentiometer. Is this going to harm the diode or driver? I like the idea of this because the driver is setting the max current and...

    NDG7475 diode window...yeah

    Im considering rolling the dice and removing the window. I have tried to clean it a few times with q tips and 97% alcohol. Im sure something is burned into the window. Any advice on doing this? Toothpick and a solder sucker? Animal sacrifice (jk)?
