    Unusual Li-ion battery option

    Hello, LPF! I have an Alibaba account and a reliable vendor that carries non typical Li-ion battery sizes. They are: 10180, 10220, 10280, 12300, 14200, 14250, 14300, 14430, 14650, 16280, 22350, 26350 If there was enough interest in these I could make a bid and a mass order and have them all...

    Red Boolit

    This weekend I decided to pull the trigger on another keychain. Oscar’s kitty toy is no longer that. This was, by far, my hardest build. I punched out all the guys and salvaged the switch only. I used a ML101U29 and FlexdriveV5 set to 300mA. Used two sided sticky as a seat for the switch and...

    3 Element Glass Lens- (minus spacer)

    Hello, LPF!! I disassembled a 3EG lens today to clean with a disposable lens cloth wipe, which work great. Usually I use canned air but this time they needed wiped. Out of curiosity I butted the spacer between the two lenses in my hand, and it appeared the spacer provides no spacing or...

    Chaos Emerald Keychain: For Sale

    I’m selling one of my prized builds. This one wasn’t an easy build due to the tight area. It’s a fun little laser...Quite a novelty. I haven’t LPM’d it as I don’t own one. But, this little green booger has awesome power for its tiny package. A 520nm 2 element glass lens is mounted. I’m...

    Finally....!

    Some of you know I’ve had the worst of luck trying to build a Red WL pen. I’ve killed a few open can diodes and even a couple drivers, regrettably. But, tonight it came together successfully :) This is nothing new or special to most. Only to me:D. Here are some pics along the way and a couple...

    50(7)nm Chrome Pen

    My inspiration to build this pen came when I came across RA_pierce’s 505 Chrome pen build. I just had to have one, too:D Thx, buddy!! View his thread here https://laserpointerforums.com/f45/long-time-no-build-505nm-leadlight-101508.html I bought the Sharp GH05030C2LM 35mW diode on techhood...

    Chaos Emerald Keychain

    Today, I completed a long awaited keychain laser. The host is a cheap LED flashlight which used 4 LR44 button cells. The anodized color and size told me I had to build a tiny laser with it:D. Components are DTR PL520 with Nano buck/boost driver at 275mA, Copper heatsink from LPF’s renowned...

    New purple gem :D

    Here’s an UltraFire C3 I bought from deal extreme several months ago. It arrived DOA. Waited 5 weeks for it too >( What better than to turn it into a laser...Duh... I’ve had a diode from a BDR-208bk for quite a while... Lifetime17’s heatsink was the final touch:) THIS WAS A HARD BUILD because...

    Addendum to: coming soon leadlight pen

    Welp, she won’t make the Obituaries... but I killed a nice diode. I finally got time to sit down and put all of this together. All was going AWESOME!! I was so careful. And then a fatal mistake put this diode’s dick in the dirt:( Continue below. _____________________________________ Excuse...

    LPC836 & Cu Module for 5.6 Wanted

    Does anyone have a couple new LPC836 or ML101U29-25 diodes and a spare 5.6mm copper Module you can sell to me for fair price? I know they’re cheaply acquired on techhood/ebay but sending to APO address is an issue for most ebay types. Thx in advance and Happy Thanksgiving!! SGD

    Coming soon: Leadlight Pen (question)

    Hey, guys!! I bought an x-switch from Flaminpyro a couple weeks ago. I want to put a single mode diode red on it for the Leadlight Pen host I have. The current is fixed at 320mA. I was kind of thinking maybe an LPC836... what do you guys think? Also, after searching a bunch and reading...

    SacréBLUE

    I’ve been meaning to build and post this build for a while but been working long hours for days... I asked Lifetime17 to build me a copper pen 14500x2 version of his 10440 pen. Observe.

    GROOVE 2 Driver or Similar?

    Do any of you have one of these or a viable alternative lying around in your laser sock drawer you can sell me? The Groove 2, I think, is the driver I'm needing to run low mA diode with 2 li-ion cells (pen). I emailed Innolasers on those. I also PM'd Flaminpyro on an X-Switch 320mA (thx...

    In need of itty bitty driver

    I've been thinking of building a very slim pen. Something to run on 2 AAAAs. Of course this will require a narrow driver. I saved a driver from a cheap 5mw-ish Alpec pen. But I have higher power ambition. I'd love to use something green like a PL520. Here's a few pics of this miniature at...

    Dead laser memorabilia/use

    So, I don't quite remember where I saw the idea but to who ever I owe props to... it's yours. :) But I thought this was cute :) Diode neo magnet

    Sharp 185mW/638nm Build

    So, here's an interesting build. Rich and I both came up with this while I was trying to figure out what to do with this ULTRA FIRE q5 host. This incorporates his astounding heatsink designs and into a smaller, modular package. Hit him up (Lifetime17) for this entire host assembly!! P.S...

    M462 Blue Job

    Survival Laser's SS host w/extended Cu HS. 16.8mm battery board. DTR 2W M462/X-Drive w 3 element lens 2 18650 Batteries This thing is awesome!! This blue is BLUE. Really nice color. You could say it's like 445nm but without violet overtones. iPhone camera doesn't portray their distinction...

    520 Streamlight

    So, here's a little gem I put together recently with a PLP520-B1 & nano buck/boost from DTR. This is and awesome little diode!! I originally put this diode and driver in a Leadlight pen host which was cool before the PCB switch quit. So, pulled it apart to make this. I didn't take pics during...

    Official, Hello LPF!!

    I've been scoping out these forums from time time and finally signed up a couple months ago. I'm a mechanic by trade so naturally I love building and teardown. So, I thought I'd try my hand at assembling lasers. I've always loved lasers!! And I've owned a few. They've all gotten away from...
