Well let me be honest about duty cycles, As I said time and again we run these diodes well out of specs that they were intended for from the manufacturers point .
I have been a supporter of the 30on/30 off but sometimes you can break the rules. Treat them right and they will last with...
Tell me what is with the new no press 5.6mm / 12mm copper modules that DTR has on his site. No pics or info how they work for us.
Maybe im missing something , please clarify.
There are no drop downs boxes for the regular 5.6mm modules to purchase.
Welcome and enjoy this fabulous forum.Here you will find many fine folks and and abundance of info. We also have search bar for referencing different topics. So be safe always and a good pair of Survival safety glasses are always in order.
There nothing like the big green monster , bright and beautiful . Ohi see you have a Argentum LPM I purchased on a long time ago and it sat until I found this. Its a 3D printed housing for it. And let me tell you its great . Theres a guy on eBay that makes them and he makes the housings for...
For star pointing and the best visible beam either a 532 or a 525 or a 520 nm would be the best for your application.
We see the green WL the best out of the color spectrum and is the brightest.
Wow it finally came together and looks great , lots of work involved .
Nice choice of diode to and the side switch for ease of handling control.
Great job and thanks for the pics, I was wondering when you were going to finish it.
personally I think its way to much for a 5W build, its in a fancy host with star caps and batteries and a charger. Plus you won't really know if its really 5W's . And has all Chinese components and glued together. Hey that just my opinion and it your money buddy.
Hope you find what your...
You dont need a 6/7 W build to start a fire , a 4/5 w is more than enough and keeps the cost down . Ti further the lower cost of a custom a flashlight modded host is in order here . These still have custom sinks and adapters and all top notch components no cheap stuff sorry.
Jet lasers are are a great company yes to order from , I think Hak is an affiliate with them here in the states email him greta guy to deal with if you go with Jet lasers.
Also if you go for the 7W 450 laser you can get as an option their 10X Beam expander that would work well at...
Ok coppers the best for sinking , but most expensive also a large Aluminum sink will do quite well for the NUBM44 diodes. I have done many with Aluminum and aluminum with a copper core pressed in. All In all you should keep the duty cycles down respectively ,
we run these higher power...
