    Update on my "start a brush pile fire" laser project.

    Shhhhhheeeeeeeeeeiiii.......* ..... Amateur. <wink> I went with something a little different. The XM42-Lite. Ironically, if it had been working, I would have never gotten burned up in the first place but at the time, the top "button" to send the electrical signal to the automotive gas pump had...

    Just throwing this out there - lots of smart people here. Couldn't someone just write a script of sorts to "delete" non active users if they haven't been active here for X period of time? Run the script to search the map and if the *ifs* and *buts* work I think the original / current map could...

    Update on my "start a brush pile fire" laser project.

    Since burning myself up in March - ish by using one of those new "safety" USA government mandated plastic gasoline 5 gallon jugs <smfh> and having 6 weeks - ish to lay in bed and heal and think about it. I was finally able to make my idea of igniting a brush fire from a safe distance with a...

    Well, FYI, I did use the map to find a guy with an LPM near me...... but I'm sleepy and that may be an entirely different "map" thread of members with LPM's..... so. Just trying to help. If there's only 1 map thread / it worked. Been talking privately with a member near me. If there's 2 map...

    Looking for cheap tri-pod ideas to hold gatling style blue laser.

    I know that might be a dumb question but I am looking for a small , compact , tripod type stand that will hold my gatling style laser steady. Home brew / redneck ideas are perfectly acceptable and encouraged. Commercial (cheap) stuff is also welcomed. I'm lost in this area but I see people...

    How long will 2x 16340's batteries @700mAh each produce a good beam before power drops off?

    You're right. My laser is the (probably) 1-1.25W blue "burning" laser in the gatling style housing sold on Amazon. I don't have an LPM so I have no idea how to judge the actual power but based on videos I've seen and others comments about that laser I'm guessing it's between 1W and 1.25W if...

    How long will 2x 16340's batteries @700mAh each produce a good beam before power drops off?

    I've gathered it's not a very good idea to turn on your laser and just leave it on from a full charge until the batteries are completely drained because of heat issues. - But in theory, I'm wondering how long 2x 16340's batts fully charged and turn the laser on - how long will the laser beam...

    Brand Spanking New / Never charged / Never used 4 x VC IMR 18350 BATTERIES 1100mAh 3.7v

    I don't think I'm interested in the boring...... Much easier to just get 4 more Efests the right size. Just trying to save $20 - ish.....

    Brand Spanking New / Never charged / Never used 4 x VC IMR 18350 BATTERIES 1100mAh 3.7v

    Oh I don't mind. I assume the price of 4 x of those batteries is a good chunk of $$$ for some people and while I don't like wasting $$$, the price for 4x *TO ME* wasn't the end of the world so I thought I'd give it a shot. I'm not sure how / or where / I'd go to get someone to "bore" it out...

    Brand Spanking New / Never charged / Never used 4 x VC IMR 18350 BATTERIES 1100mAh 3.7v

    I just received them today from Ebay and unfortunately they do not fit inside my gatlin style blue laser housing. They are just a little bit too big around. Again, Brand new, never used. I got 4 of them. Would be willing to trade str8 up for 4 Efest 16340 button tops @700mAh. I ordered 2 of...

    Replacement battery questions.

    Yes sir. I found exactly what I was looking for and plan to call them tomorrow just to verify. Agree w/u about safety. I actually ordered a set of the 18340's too. The Efests. Button top. I also ordered a battery charger that the link you provided - the guy lists the chargers he recommends to...

    Yet another noob question about batteries and chargers

    Well I did say I have OCD and technically in this thread I was asking about chargers.... Never the less, I do understand your point. Please feel free to delete this thread. (seriously) Please leave the other one up though. Thanks (WILD)

    Replacement battery questions.

    I 100% believe my housing has plenty of "spring" and "play" to fit the ever so slightly bigger 18350's --- but I was afraid to ask or even go down that rabbit hole. --- That settles it for me. I'm willing to roll the dice and *TRY* the 18350's and those links you provided are exactly what I was...

    Yet another noob question about batteries and chargers

    I have a slight touch of OCD (so I'm sorry I'm making a not difficult issue / difficult) I am in North America, North Carolina to be exact. What is the best place for me to order 16340 batteries? (Not brand, *PLACE*) I'd like Efest batts as someone else told me they were the best. 2) Do I...

    Blasphemy. <grin> I want light sabers bro..... lol.

    Replacement battery questions.

    Also, agree with you 100%. The Gatling feels good in the hand and is built solid IMHO. Feels nice. I'd like to be able to break it down , tinker , etc but I probably never will.

    Replacement battery questions.

    Yeah - it's more or less this one - (Ironically if you zoom in you can clearly see the same blue batteries I posted a picture of and you can see the 1500mAh label too) **EDIT** it won't let me post the link because I only have 15 posts and must have 20 posts to post links. Just go to Amazon...
