I would appreciate some opinions, from anyone, if converting this cree flashlight into a proper host/build would be attainable and/or a good idea? As soon as I saw it, I automatically thought "must have..."

Thank you all for the positive posts! Sorry for the delayed response as I have been extremely busy with work. As a member of this community, I feel gracious reading input from other members within the community. It would not have been possible for me to put a little project like this together it...
Wondering if anyone near Miami, FL with a working LPM would be kind enough to measure some lasers for me? Got a 50mW, 2W (stamped 1.6W), and my new addition, 3W. I'll drive to you or meet somewhere if need be. I'll bribe ya with some food, beers, or cookies:whistle:.
Well, the time has come. After a month of research and a week of waiting for parts, the time has arrived! Couldn't be happier with my first build :D
As for it being my first build, DTR helped a lot when I had questions and/or was confused. For those who have never purchased from him, you're...
Heya Manny, sorry for posting on a old thread, but I too am in Miami, FL. How'd your experiment go? I just got a 2W Lucklaser (stamped with a 1.6W diode :/) laser. Meh, but ordered a 3W kit from DTR. Super stoked! Anyway, hope all is well.:wave:
I think I know what you're talking about and where your heading with this. The only issue I think would occur is making the chargers for consumers and them charging them safely. Thinking that while the producer can do it safely, not sure if they'll be able to. But that's my dilemma anyhow. :/
Yes, for lighting such objects, and ciggs too lol. (m140 module in zippo case with driver and such)Yeah, imagine showing that to a smoker who's not that into lasers. I bet you they will be after they see that lol. Of course, taking all proper safe procedures. With 2W, should take about 5~7 seconds.
Thanks xirrious, I'll definitely do a review on it. Sorry about the 15% less power, as we laser enthusiasts want to get the max out of our diodes :(. As for the batteries, I need a specific one, or 2, 2x 340mAh 3.7v lipo batteries (I've searched high and low for that type everywhere and ebay in...
Doh, I did not know it was stamped with 1.6w diode! Saw 2W and I honestly believed them :banghead: Oh well, through our mistakes we learn. As to the laser itself, I still haven't received it! It's been stuck in customs in China for the past 3 weeks! So now, the only real 2W power that I have...
Awesome build Masterjoa! I've already commented on your youtube video but definitely not here. Already got all the parts (minus the m140) on the way. I'll make sure to post my results and credit you for the build!
Hehe, that was posted off my comment/question. But in theory, that should work. Just make sure you're using 2 3.7v batteries, as one would not suffice it with enough power. A proper heat sink is also recommended
