Thanks xirrious, I'll definitely do a review on it. Sorry about the 15% less power, as we laser enthusiasts want to get the max out of our diodes :(. As for the batteries, I need a specific one, or 2, 2x 340mAh 3.7v lipo batteries (I've searched high and low for that type everywhere and ebay in china was the only result), as those are the only ones that will fit snugly under a zippo case. In addition, since it's a lipo battery, it has to be charged with a special charger. So I'm building the charger as well :/. Now I see why people don't like to sell laser lighters lol

Gotcha. By laser lighter you mean a Zippo that lights ur stoges or blunts with a laser instead of flame or u just want a diode in a laser? Lemme tell you lighting cigs even with a 2w laser takes alot longer then just flicking a lighter lol

Not to mention its a dangerous practice as you need to inhale thus you'll be aiming the beam towards your face.... but I love the idea! You MUST review for us when you finish that with plenty of pics. Good luck getting your parts. May the slowboat be not so terribly slow!

Yes, for lighting such objects, and ciggs too lol. (m140 module in zippo case with driver and such)Yeah, imagine showing that to a smoker who's not that into lasers. I bet you they will be after they see that lol. Of course, taking all proper safe procedures. With 2W, should take about 5~7 seconds.

You are correct. Itll need to be focused too. I too have a plan similar to yours that'll eventually make me a good deal of money. Can't say too much here but im part of another community that doesn't know much if anything about lasers but will love them and buy em up like crazy once they're introduced

I think I know what you're talking about and where your heading with this. The only issue I think would occur is making the chargers for consumers and them charging them safely. Thinking that while the producer can do it safely, not sure if they'll be able to. But that's my dilemma anyhow. :/

RAYZ- not good to double post at LPF- 4 min apart--you could have used edit-p OP did the same error- ya'll may as well do the copypasta thing and delete the second post- as the 'janitor' will do it anyway --

I know a bit about killing diodes- below is some of them..

Sorry about any double posts. We were having a conversation so edits wouldn't do for what I had to say it'd throw f
conversation flow totally off but I agree it belonged in a PM not here especially since this threads about my poor dead diode. Ill make sure to not let it happen again thanks for the heads up. Did you seriously kill all of this diodes man? Thats insane. Id cry :yh:

Ps... sorry typing on a crap phone so my typing is horrible

Here is the picture of the host as requested earlier today



The tailcap and aperture are just out of view but thats the whole host. Sorry not the best picture.

Im lookin for something and that sounds perfect ... im gonna get a 405nm/650nm from laserbtb so I have a matching set but that host really is high quAlity like I said I can focus the beam to a pinpoint basically right at the aperture but alas.. I cant build my own yet still got more learning to do

lol

so that also explains another double post -- right above this post..

valid reasons for dble posts are:

bumping your own FS or WTB thread-

adding new and important info you want others to see (those that sub get emails)-

or when your post was the last but LONG ago-

or if you have more pics that a single post can hold-

the worst are those who appear to be simply adding to their post count and i have never seen you do that--OK?

not sure using LPF as a chat room is totally valid but I am not bothered by that.

and yes that is a nice host

however you CAN find time to fix these double posts later --lol on a REAL PC ha ha later- its super easy and as i say do you really want a mod to do that for you??
ONE OF THE WORST OFFENDERS irrc HAD SEVEN BACK-TO-BACK POSTS..
SO a line must be drawn and here its at one post --

I think the funniest was there brand new members(with NO LOCATIONS ADDED) having a 3 way 'argument' about a 'new' china laser seller- two saying they were first class and the third asking about rumors to the contrary-- turned out all three had the same IP addy- so they were all in prolly the same room holding this 'conversation' with each other ...wth??

We understand at other forums this is very common- even triple posts and more but not here-- that is why you do not see that very often at LPF----

Thankyou for the compliments hakzaw I dont really care about post count mines high cuz im a newb and ask alot of questions and enjoy interacting with LPF members. If at any time im out of line or being an asshat (common of me) feel free to put me in line as a senior member. Nobody here will hurt my feelings


The host is great and im in the process of talking to someone about maybe rebuilding it for me.. and also ill have my computer back up soon so my posts then will be alot more comprehensive and not so much double posting info etc etc. So fsr all my posts have been via my phone either thru tapatalk or my phones broswer. Anybow this threads about dead i think lol lets cut the life support and let er go :yh:

Edit... you may have notice I delete ed the one obvious double post you pointed out earlier in this thread. Im leaving the rest alone as im done with this thread I think anywAys.. lets just let it fall to the bottom and away to page 2 :yh: much thanks for handling this issue with integrity and in a respectful manner even tho I am new. Shows alot when vets show respect to newer members and really highlights good character. Thanks again!

I have caught myself double posting on occasion- but not intentional-
also it is NOT a double post if someone deletes a post that puts yours back to back- of course.--

^^^ lol

I took that as an intentional insult to our collective intellegences- they are not very good at what they were trying to pull- and of course all three got promptly banned--:tsk::tsk::tsk::banned::banned::banned:



IMHO no member should ever get negged for double posting- MAYBE for arguing about it or repeated times or triple/quad posting or after they have been informed of the policy here on that.. & I can also understand how a new member may not even know how to combine posts. Or does this by accident-- lately here I have seen some of my posts get doubled-prolly by me overclicking -SUBMIT- and if you move on you may not even know you did that -

I, in the past, HAVE used LPF as a chat but only by using PMs.

Odd that nobody had anything to say about the pic i added (NOT my diodes- they were all killed in the name of science by Bill at Pangolin- when he was working on diode protection from spikes and ESD --the Pangolin 'LaseOrb' is a good investment when using 'spendy' diodes; IIRC CNI et al use then in their lab lasers

Sometimes ya gotta whip out the banstick ya know those three deserved it for sure. But I've made a point now to use PMs more instead of using a thread to carry on a one on one conversation. If its a group discussion obviously that's different. But ya I've taken your advice :yh:
