Hello guys! So I am about 30 seconds away from ordering a Nichia NDB7875 445nm 9mm Copper 445nm Blue Laser Module W/X-Drive & Glass Lens complete module from DTR off eBay and a T1 9mm 445nm laser lens from Rick Trent, also off eBay (cant use the buying part of the forum yet) to go with my two UKAm890 18650 5600mah Ultrafire Torch batteries. Ive been looking for a few days now about heat sinks for the module. I havent picked out a host yet so i changed direction and tried from that end. My issue is, I cant seem to find much information on what heat sinks are out there for a host that can take my two 18650's. Before I start to ramble, I should just make the long story short: I need to know what hosts are available to me that already have a heat sink made for them. Heres my specifications: I need the host to be able to take both batteries at the same time, in a line. I need the host to have an available heat sink that the module can fit in (Nichia NDB7875 445nm 9mm Copper 445nm Blue Laser Module w x Drive Glass Lens | eBay). Id also like the completed unit to be on the more narrower side as the laser will only be used in short bursts. Any ideas? I found the 1800 Lm CREE XM-L T6 to be nice but im not sure if theres a slimline heat sink out there for it that takes the module. Im beginning to feel overwhelmed as im starting to think that im going to have to mill one Before I go waste money ordering things that wont work just to try them, I figured I should ask the pros Thank you everyone for putting up with my noobness and taking the time to read this!
