    Please don't delete your sold items thread!

    Hey guy's, I noticed a few people on LPF tend to edit and erase the OP and title in their BST thread after it's been sold. I wish people wouldn't do this. Even if an item has sold there is still helpful and valuable information in there you are deleting. For example if I am buying or selling a...

    WTB Spartan host or dead Laser

    If anyone can help me attain a Spartan host for a 462 mm 7675 diode with a custom made driver to safely push the wl into 470+nm. It has to be a spartan because I have bought a 2X beam ex for it and they have reasonably decent heat sinking abilities. 1.5W of 471 light with an 2 X BEAM expander on...

    Samsung 18650's

    I have noticed Samsung 18650's are surprisingly affordable on places such as Ebay. I recently got one that came with a laser I purchased and put it on my Opus to test it out. Its a really nice cell. They only come in as high as 2100- 3000 mAh but lately I'm not as worried about getting 3400's. I...

    Tailcap may be the culprit?

    Ill try to be as efficient as possible explaining what is going on and what I need. Long story short this spring I got a PLE 800mW 532 repaired from Gray. When I received it and tried it out it was clearly not 800mW. Metered it and it averaged 350mW and never reached higher then 600mW for a...
