Thanks Billy, it wasn't all at once. Bought one here and there, they just added up over time. I just like the different styles of builds. It's nice having so many, it seems like there always new.




It's in picture number 6 where all my dual diode builds are. Don't know which of the four it is. :confused: I sent it to Lifetime to get an adapter made so it can use a Sanwu 3x as the two have in the last picture. Was so please with the dot improvement of my r&g to yellow I choose to get adapters made for them all. Order 4 extra BE's from Sanwu so I could keep them on and would have to swap the out when I wanted to use them on other units. But I'm having fun. :)
With all those top-notch lasers i bet you are !

Do you have a yellow laser in there somewhere ?

Please see post 170 of this thread. It a picture of the dot if my r@g to yellow. I also have AcrticDude's open source build, it's a rgb that does all colors. It's controlled by a chip. See pictures 19&20.

Bob, WOW.... if you label an addiction a Hobby... you're in denial :crackup: jk
That's impressive!! Now, here's what you need to do. Go get some of your buddies and family and turn all of these on at once. And shine them over a pond at dusk and post on Arcticdude's beam thread. You'd WIN there too:) thanks for sharing!!

Heeee, Shotgun, thought about going to "lasers anonymous" but I not convinced I have a problem just yet, still got some addictions to add. I'll get help later. :D

That would be sight to see. Turn all these on at the same time? Awesomeness! That would be a sight to see. Don't know how long I'd be charging batteries before I got ready. Thinking by the time the last one got charged the first one would have lost its charge and need a recharge. :crackup:

Glad you enjoyed the collection. I've got a couple of reviews coming out hopefully this week. ( Lord willing ) trying to included some night time beam shots, they seem to be the toughest to get. But I'm working on it. :)

Have you posted the 532 lab Bob? I didn't see it. :(

-Alex

No I haven't yet Hap. I've been a slacking. I haven't updated my collection in a while. Need to add your/my 2.6mw 532nm labby, plus maybe another 10ish new acquires. Been just so busy. Looks like I'll be moving so that's going to take up a bunch of my free time. But I'm planning on updating when I get the time. It's on my bucket list. :)

Good find. If only that charger would charge 26650, 18650's 18350's 16350's, li-ion's. I'd be all over it! Might even buy two. So close AA's and AAA's just don't full the bill. If only. :thinking:

Yeah just read nimh vs lion
https://turbofuture.com/misc/Which-...-Hydride-NiMH-or-Lithium-Ion-Li-ion-batteries

That's all I could find too is an 8 bay lion charger.
:crackup: laughing about lion blowing up but not laughing. If mine ever does thank god for the thick S4X host and please let it happen inside it and not in my hand! I am confirming they can though. I had 2 of the little half sized 18650's for an ecig trustfire brand with a cheapy charger. One exploded and burnt my entire space bar up. It melted the side of the charger. If my memory is right it was for a vamo v5 and I was in the kitchen and ducked for cover thinking driveby. I was in a hurry and I think they sold me a nimh charger at local ecig shop when the battery was lion.

Can you charge Lithium Batteries In A Nicad/Nimh Charger?
:crackup: :mad:
That was right about when I started ordering all my ecig stuff and making my own ecig juice.
That was equivalent of them throwing a hand grenade in my bedroom!!!! Still question it being deliberate! I bought the batteries at the same time and all I saw was lithium ion batteries.
So wasn't intentional bob

Bob,
https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_pg_...keywords=Tenergy+18650&ie=UTF8&qid=1507876260

They make and sell 18650 batteries, so it's likely that it will charge all nimh 18650's. Probably not lion batteries and don't recommend it unless it says it will. Maybe time to switch to nimh?

I have quite a collection of li-ion already. It would be impractical for me to switch. Besides I'm not sure nimh's could produce the currents/amps I need to power my lasers. I have 2 nitecore d4's one nitecore d2 and and 4 bay opus at the moment. Even with them when I want to fire 5 or so lasers at once it's hard to get all the battery charged. But thanks for your thoughts :)

:thanks: Encap, I probably will end up buying one of these. As stated above I've got some nitecore chargers and have had good success with there dependability. An 8 bay one might just be enough. To bad it won't charge 32650's but what it does is more than fine. Thanks for the info and link. :)

Yes li-ion will blow up it's something you have to watch for especially if your using the cheaper ones with a cheap charger. If it says "trust" in the name I wouldn't recommend using them at all. I'm sure you know by now don't charge a li-ion in any thing but an Li-ion charger, don't mix and match, not a good thing. Glad it didn't cause any major damage just a melted charger. I'd stick to the name brand batteries and charger for your lasers.( which I'm sure you know, lesson learned) And watch for the counterfeits there getting real prevalent on eBay. :)
