    X-Boost the replacement for FlexDrive?

    Hi all, I'm trying to finish what I started roughly 6 years ago, which was building a PHR-803t laser, using a single 3.7v battery. Unfortunately, my FlexDrive is somewhat mangled due to poor soldering, so I was thinking of just purchasing a new one. Dr.Lava seems to be gone, and the only thing...

    Whats the dot supposed to look like?

    Is the dot from an 803T supposed to be a circle or an ellipse? Mine looks like an ellipse, which I assume is because of the diode structure...

    Flourescence dangerous?

    Well got my BR set up, finally, and its pretty damn birght and the beam is easily visible. When shining it around, and realizing how it flouresces everything, I was wondering if its dangerous? I mean a 100 mW dot on a wall thorugh suitable lenses is not dangerous, but when it floursces, certain...

    Why not...

    .. Use the focusing lens that comes with the diodes on the drives that we extract them from, expecially the Blu-ray drives. Maybe these lenses are AR coated, possibly even glass? Just wondering if anyone has tried them yet, as Blu-ray's dont have a great selection for lenses...

    1xAA Blu-Ray WIP help

    Well my host finally came today and it was a lot smaller than I expected! Anyway, came in good condition, no scratches and paint/ano looks great. THe lens and reflector is plastic, but the entire body is aluminum. The switch in the tail loose when I got it and as a result did not work, so that...

    Window cleaning...

    WEll got my 803t diode de-soldered, so I am going to mount it in the housing, but the window seems to have a little bit of dust on it. SHould I try and clean it or is that too risky? What should I use to clean it? EDIT: I am asking because Im scared by all of the horrow stories of windows...

    Interesting...

    Well my DX true 30 has heat issues, where it dims if kept on for too long. So i like to throw it in the freezer for a minute or so just to speed up the process. But I just recently left it in there for too long and got some interesting results. The dot was very dim, and when shined on my palm...

    way to mod Aixiz module

    Well I was reading IgorT's topic and how the Aixiz lens is 3( or six, cant remember) element and that that reduces power. Is there a way to pull out some of the lenses( while still making it work)?

    destructive interference?

    Have you guys ever created complete destructive intereference by shining two lasers together? IE shining two beams through a prism or whatever you sue to combine beams and have nothing come out( or it be very dim)? This is the only example of destructive intereference with light I can seem to...

    If I wanted to make a blu-ray...

    All I would need would be a module(a dorcy or something), the diode( from the $20 803t sled's), the 5mW aixiz housing, a driver( a lava drive) and a power supply?Do the BR's function pretty much the same as a red burner( meaning I could use those guides to build my own?)

    Any  experience with...

    Geniune New Wish 5mW Green Laser Module (5V) from DX? Kinda want to build my own little pointer, as the small keychain ones from DX all suck :P All I would have to do is house it and give it a supply right?

    True 30 trouble

    I got a DX true 30mW, and its acting pretty funny. Sometimes the beam will be going real good and strong, but other times it will start off really bright, then quickly die down to a very dull spot, the brightness of a cheap red pointer. Is this the unit overheating? Should i give it a duty cycle?

    Cheap low power protection?

    Well I am very P O'ed because I took a lot of time to write out a well written and thought out post, but I had a link in at and this Fricken URL posting block made me lose the entire post, so this ones going to be very short and poorly written. Deal. 3D glasses! JK Story I dont want to...

    Cant post links

    I cant post links... I have more than 20 posts now, after i made some pointless ones, still wont let me do it. Also is there a way to make it so that this forum caches( or whateaver the right word is) your info, cause I lost a pretty big topic because my thing had a link in it, and when i went...

    Way to mod 5mW dollar store pointers?

    Besides destroying it and making a DIY Dvd burner or heating it up with a blow torch ::) I just opened one up and the diode and most of the electronics was incased in a block of aluminum...
