    Taking my laser collection on a flight.

    Well I feel comfortable taking my lasers now, other posts have people saying they have taken their lasers on without incident. Though I am not going to push my luck and try to bring my 1kg tungsten cube on with me lol.

    Taking my laser collection on a flight.

    Sorry thought stating the flight was in the USA is enough. CA to TX and on return TX to CA. Most stuff I found online says that I should be fine and like paul1598419 said, if asked say its a LED flashlight. And I'll be carrying the lasers separate from the batteries. The lasers are a 1w 520nm...

    Taking my laser collection on a flight.

    I am visiting some friends next month and was wondering if I would run into any problems bringing some of my lasers and batteries packed in my carry-on bag on the flight. The flight is in the USA.

    If it ends up not working out, I will make a larger diameter copper heatsync out of a slug of copper or something.

    DTR's Reviews/Tutorials/Modifications Compilation

    I do not plan on leaving the laser running for long periods of time, and a moderately short duty cycle is fine for me, I just want something I can fit in my pocket. Thanks for the advice. Edit: And TBH I was so excited when i got my 1000mw 520nm, that my first heatsync was aluminum foil, thick...

    I will be using the 22mm heat sync from DTR's shop, I believe it will be sufficient. And the life of the 18350s is good enough for me, I care more about compactness. Thanks for the input. Thank you.

    I new to the idea of these mech mods and would love some good advice. What mods do you use that can hold 2x 18350 batteries? And what concerns are there with using unregulated vs regulated mods? I have some diodes with drivers from DTR's shop that I'd like have a home for. Edit: And will these...

    DTR's Reviews/Tutorials/Modifications Compilation

    I have had a 1w 520nm laser diode with a driver from DTR's shop for a while now and have been using 2x 18350's. I made a crummy heatsync out of a block of aluminum but it was not very great. I just connected the driver's leads to a switch and the batteries and it worked just fine. I was just...

    I ordered some of the 22mm heatsinks for the 12mm copper modules from DTR's site and was looking to find a simple "mechanical mod" to attach to the 510 thread adapter. I am looking for something that can use both 1x 18650 and 2x 18350 batteries(or just 2x 18350's) that has no voltage or wattage...

    Future 1w+ 520nm laser build

    Thanks for all the replies, I think I got all the info I need. Again I will not be doing this for a month so if I decide to buy a host instead of building my own it wont be for a while. Thank you all.

    Future 1w+ 520nm laser build

    I will be buying the NDG7475 1W 520nm Laser Diode In 12mm Copper Module W/Driver from DTR's Laser shop in about a month, and was looking for some pointers cause this is my first build. I was wondering the things I need to build a proper host, I plan on machining whatever parts I can but aside...

    Re: Hyperion Laser Power Meter For Sale: 2W & 6W Version I am new to the laser hobby and don't have a LPM yet. I am very interested in the Hyperion Argentum. I will probably be ordering one next month when I get some spare cash.

    Looking to buy good focusing 445nm 2-5W blue laser

    I currently have two pairs of goggles that are 190-540nm OD4+, will these suffice or will I need a higher rated pair. And I know that its much more dangerous, was not trying to imply that the 300mw 532nm was comparable. I can look at the beam on the wall with the 300mw for a short time without...
