Re: Worlds most powerful handheld 4.4W 445nm

Really an amazing project.:gj:

I have been watching this thread with great anticipation. Can't wait to see the final thread. Hope to see a nice linear tutorial with lots of pictures from concept to finished product.:pop:

You definitely get a bow down from me on this one.:bowdown: You really put a lot of time, thought and effort into this build. Great job.:beer:

Thanks DTR! I learned from the best; it was not long ago I was trying to figure out how to build my first laser by looking at all your builds. :yh:

Also thanks for helping me out with the diodes for this build earlier in the year, those extended modules are great!

Thanks! :) It's still smaller than the Hercules, that thing is massive! The host is a little smaller than a 2D maglite.

Totally awesome man! :cool:

I'll bet that bad boy would do some serious burning. Maybe light fire almost instantly to crumbled up paper??

Thanks! I'll test out the burning tomorrow. I need to make a beam dump before I put another mark on the wall, or hole in my shirt :crackup:

Hopefully I can get a video of it without my video camera messing up :)

I am a bit afraid of it too,:eek: the problem with this amount of power is that it doesn't take long to punch a hole in your cloths, or put a mark on a wall.

I remember being scared of my first 2W build in a maglite, but now seems tame in comparison to this.

Re: Worlds most powerful handheld 4.4W 445nm

Wow! That is fantastic!!!:beer:

So what did your neighbors say after they saw it? :eg:

Are you able to adjust the focus / are the flat part of the dots or "wings" aligned on the same plane?

Yep, I get this general feeling with all 445. Have accidentally put a few burns in the walls, and outside the beam is insanely visible in the sky, almost like a huge illuminated arrow going "Guy with an illegal laser down here!"

Kinda need ultra low power modes, maybe run just 1 diode just above threshold? :D

Nice man... a slot to open up and view combining cube would be over the top, but that's messing with perfection.
