    Is there any new boost drivers available?

    It's been a while since I've looked up for part to build a laser, so I'm wondering if there's any new boost drivers available, because the only one I ever hear about was the flexdrive. But I have to say that this one was kind of pricy, so are there new cheeper alternatives?

    Voltage questions

    So I built yesterday a LPC flashlite style laser (there's a topic in multimedia if you want some pics :D) and I used 6 volts to set my Rkctsr driver at 200mA. I didn't have my batteries (2X10440) at that time, so I wonder if it's okay to power my laser with them like it is know, or if I have to...
