Dang. Apparantly it's cheaper to buy one already built than build one your own >.>

Is that a focusing ring on the front? Does it include a charger? What's the duty cycle and battery life?

I have one the same... In my case it was an old trick
in the wiring trade to untangle and parallel bundled
wire harnesses before putting on a Ty-Rap..
You use your pinky nail instead of grabbing a Screw
Driver or other tool to grab twisted wires... At the end
of the day I could produce more wiring harnesses than
the guy using a tool...:cool:

Re: >1 watt 445nm Monster

those nails are also called "soldering nails" :p ..... mean, when you have to solder some small and short wires, keeping them in place at a pair of millimeters from the soldering point, and you have only your fingers for do this, you will end to appreciate that all these burned marks ends on your nail, instead than on your fingertip (yowch) ..... :na: :D

Yeah I use this thing as a tool. I actually have one on both hands. It comes in handy everyday. My lady also loves it when I scratch her back or head with it.

Yes that is the standard aixiz focus ring. I do not even have a charger for myself at the moment so I will not be including one with this sale sorry. Duty cycle as mentioned above is 30 on/off. That does not mean 30 seconds on then momentary off followed by 30 on again. That means 30 seconds on followed by 30 seconds off. I am unsure of battery run times. I have not tested this.

yobresal, what driver do these use? Also, are they powered by 1 or 2 cr123A cells?

Re: >1 watt 445nm Monster

These are powered by 2 CR123A batteries. You can also use 1 18650 battery but the current regulation will cut out and the laser will only be half as powerful (in many cases it may not meet the threshold and won't laze at all. The driver is a buck driver current regulated with an input voltage range of 3-18V.Take a look in the driver "drivers for 445nm" threadfor more details. The driver runs nice and smooth with 2 CR123A batteries. I have tested it with lower voltages and the driver will not properly regulate with a single 18650..power will be around half. I have not tested with voltages above 8.4.

Re: Sold

More of these are now available. I'll change the thread title as soon as I am at a real computer. I can't seem to do so on the iPhone.
