    Best 18650 batteries?

    Thanks, I ordered a pair of the protected Panasonic/Sanyo 18650s from Liionwholesale. How come it's been said to steer clear of Surefire (I can understand why to avoid Ultrafire...) batteries? From what I understand they are a quasi-defense contractor that provides equipment to military and LE

    Best 18650 batteries?

    I just got a Surefire M600DF Scout light and it comes with a protected Surefire brand 18650 battery. I've also got an Olight S2R Baton II which came with an unprotected Olight brand battery. I've read a few times before that these brands produce substandard batteries, and have already got a pair...

    Green laser rifle sight help

    On a related note, how do manufacturers ensure that the laser diodes are not destroyed by the muzzle blast? I've always wondered that, especially since my DIY lasers get crap all over the diode windows and eventually just get destroyed. Are diodes inherently fragile or is it a protective...

    Need help with Survival Laser lll

    All of their heat sinks fit the same size modules, except the builds which use the 20mm module adapter, in which case the module itself acts as the heat sink. You wont find any heat sinks for non-12mm modules on their site.

    SCAM - ignore

    A lot of these companies have been stealing styropyro's content (pics and vids) in order to sell their product. Pretty reprehensible

    7 watt diodes, too powerful to have fun with?

    Please read the threads about laser safety as well as the linked resources... no, you're not going to use protection at night outdoors with a 30mW green laser but you're making a thread about 7 watts. You need eye protection for that or damage is definitely going to happen no matter what. It can...

    7 watt diodes, too powerful to have fun with?

    You will need eye protection no matter what. Those people on youtube are endangering themselves, anybody in their vicinity, as well as their viewers inadvertently. Hope that helps too.

    Looking for a laser as a birthday gift and REALLY need help on what to get.

    Crosman has a full auto .177 I was looking at the other day actually. Right now as far as airguns go I've still got my Red Ryder. Speaking of which, great gift idea for OP too

    how to clean laser diode??

    The diode window can not be cleaned, whatever dust gets on there will get burned on permanently. For external optics, you can use some compressed air/keyboard cleaner and a lens cloth with a bit of alcohol.

    First completed build! And a learning experience

    Agreed, the greens that anybody could build on their own far outclass any of the various common green lasers on the market not only in terms of the diodes you can use but also, like you said, the importance of a copper/aluminum heat sink with preferably as much mass as possible for the given...
