    The ABSOLUTE Cheapest Proper Diode driver

    Fooling around with some old LOC reds and some of the $2.50 reds off Ebay. I didn't want to spend for a pricey driver. SO, here is the minimum AMC7135 driver. It will give 350ma on a 10440 AAA or any single cell rechargeable. It doesn't need heatsink and although the diode will get warm after a...

    Whatever happened to revisions of this host?

    Back in 2014 there was a great host produced in a group buy. I bought 3 of them and a few others did also. I haven't seen one single laser from this host online. I also haven't seen any revisions or subsequent group buys. They had a massive Copper heatsink and were designed for a single 18650...

    Bunch of stuff on PL that might interest some.

    Hope this doesn't violate any rules on here, but There is a thread over on PL with a number of items for sale. They are a laser company (LIVE laser systems) in Austria that appears to have fallen on bad times and are selling some of their backroom products. What caught my attention was the 594...

    Slowest/Longest time to become a veteran (1000 posts)

    Big Bang Theory S07E05 - Laser Balloon Popping

    OK, if you've seen the latest Big bang theory. At the very end they pop a ballon with a laser. I'm thinking it's bogus the way it's presented. They have a laser breadboard on a cart with a power supply, and two wires running to a head. Definitely looks like a HeNe. It puts out a green beam...
