Happy New Year everyone! :beer:

Going into 2016 we have a number of new items that will be available on the stores.

First, with Lighthound closing shop earlier this year we figured there would be a need for another AW brand batteries dealer, which are arguably the best batteries available for laser and flashlight applications. We now stock a variety of AW batteries, both Li-ion and IMR.

Li-ion in PR123 and P18650 sizes:

...and IMR in 16340, 18350 and 18650 sizes:

The batteries can be shipped separately to our US customers, but must be shipped in combination with a charger to our international customers to comply with international postal regulations.

Next, we have designed a new no-nonsense 16.8mm diameter battery contact board that is available with and without wires attached, for those builds using rectangular drivers:

Finally, we now have our conical focus adapter available in a black anodized finish, which goes well with our black anodized S4X host:

Once again, we thank you for your business this year and we look forward to an even better 2016!

Very nice new items!

Great idea to stock and offer AW batteries available with Lighthound out of businesses.

Survival Lasers just gets better and better as a valuable resource for LPF members!

Thanks guys! I am always open to carrying new items, cash permitting. ;) In fact a number of products we sell are a result of suggestions from customers. Let me know if anything in particular comes to mind. :D

may be carry all size of high drain battery might help the forum out a lot.
like 10440; 14500; .....;
-order from a U.S re-seller is much more reliable than order stuff from China anyway.(they take forever to arrive, cheap and low quality product, and their crappy Fire batteries).
-U.S customer will enjoy the reliable; fast and free shipping.
-while international buyer can enjoy buying batteries with peace in mind.( checked many website before none of them ever want to ship batteries into Australia.)
and Australia don't sell those Panasonic/Sanyo/IMR brand batteries mostly sell those blue generic cells making life hard for the Aussies hobbyist.

Again, good comments. AW makes a high drain 14500 so that is a possibility on my next reorder.

I have criticized you in the past for not having quality cells and now unfortunately I can't be the first to congratulate you on carrying the AW brand but for what it's worth this is great news and I'm really glad that you are giving your customers a choice of proven quality batteries. I really hope your customers take advantage of you offering these and I'll back you up all the way if you need a recommendation;) Now you have a great product all the way around. Again, good on ya! No hard feelings I hope. Had nothing to do with you personally. It makes me edgy when I see "fire" batteries as I have personally tested ones that look the same on the outside but have very different capacities inside.

I would REP but I can't yet....

Wish they had 10440 but I don't think they have anything below the 14500 (I have some of those). If anyone needs 10440 the best I have s3en are the Efest ones which test out well (have some of those too).

I like that those contact boards have a nice wide outside ring and the pads are a decent size too. The conical focus adapters look like a pretty "cool" offering as well.

No hard feelings Pman, I appreciate any constructive criticism and suggestions. I've actually been trying to source and stock these batteries for some time now. They are truly great cells and I use them regularly in our driver and diode module testing.

We now have the battery and charger combos available on the international store:

Batteries and Chargers

Thanks for the endorsement and I would certainly appreciate any recommendations you're willing to provide. :beer:

Would be nice if you can design a custom beam expander that fits on all the "extended and tapered" heatsinks. I would like 10x or 5x expanders, more people would buy your hosts and use the expanders.

Thanks,

Per request, AW brand Li-ion and IMR 14500 batteries are now available on the US store. We will need to get some 14500 chargers before being able to offer them on the international store.

I still don't understand how to order the laser66 (leadlight) pens from him. Doesn't matter which computer or phone I use I always get an error message when it takes me to paypal that something is wrong on his end with his paypal account so it won't let me pay for them. I've had to beg others to sell me one.

I'm a bit late as I just saw this new conical focus knob, I'm also curious if it would fit my S4 with the tappered copper sink? It would sure look good:whistle:
