    Hello all, As you can tell by the inactivity of my account, I have been out of the laser hobby for a while. So, I'm selling my Sci-Fi Lasers SF501b 445nm 1.1W laser (recorded with my LPM). I got this a while back in a trade but it's just been sitting for a long time now. I'll take offers; no...

    WTB: Driver Springs

    I order some driver springs from Intl Outdoor about a month ago. It was a pack of 10 for $4.50 shipped. Unfortunately they still haven't arrived and I need some driver springs, so I thought I'd ask if any of you guys had some. I just need ones that can be soldered to drivers (particularly the...

    Would 530mA kill the LPC836?

    Hi, I posted a while back about dropping my LPC826 build (C6 host with 530mA driver). When I dropped it, the diode got extremely dim, and I assumed I broke it upon impact. I got a new LPC836 today, so I wired it up and starting using it. It worked for a grand total of probably 35 seconds (10...

    My Awesome DIY Carrying Case! {VERY PIC HEAVY}

    I've been trying to find a carrying case for a while now... My lasers have just been sitting in their bubble wrap envelopes they came in :p I went to the mall the other day and they had a cigar store. I walked past it once without even thinking. The second time I walked past it, I realized they...

    A+ to SurvivalLasers!

    It took a long time to decide on a company to buy some parts for my build from, but I decided on SurvivalLasers due to the extremely positive rep (and the LPF discount :p). I ordered the C6 host, a C6 heatsink, a pre-set pre-wired buck driver, and a small heatsink for my driver (which I now...

    Can I use CR123A in my laser with suggested 16340/18350?

    I'm sure this Q has been asked and answered a hundred times but I couldn't find a definite answer. My 445 1W laser from SciFi Lasers is suggested to use either 2x 18350 or 16340. However, I have some CR123A's on hand I wonder if they would work too? I know they're only 3V vs the 16340/18350...

    LPC826 - Case Pisitive or Negative?

    Disassemble the WF-501b?

    Hey, I'm looking at buying this 501b flashlight from DX for a Red LPC826 build. The only problem is that it's the entire flashlight, not just the empty shell. How would I go about taking it apart? Is it just simply removing the bulb and glass lens on top? Sorry for the n00b question, haha. Just...
