Received the host today. That was fast, next day delivery is nice
This is a very small host. I ordered the version 2 heatsink.
For the positive input, to the diode. I just used a small piece of wire warped through the + hole on the flex drive. Then just let it soak up a small dab of solder. Followed by a quick once over with a small file to give it a flatter surface.
Even with this small contact, I still had to trim the spring in the tailcap.
If you still need extra room you can also move your aixiz module up a few mm. I was able to sink my aixiz module all the way down flush with the heatsink. I guess it does help to have the shortest sized cr2 you can get.
You know those boxes that the cheap pointers come in? That 'hard' foam inside the box (cut out for the pointer) is a good material to use to put into the heatsink on each side of the driver for side to side support.
EDIT: Yay 400th post!
Here's my 505mW 12x Keychain! This picture doesn't show any of the beautiful craftsmanship and detail of the host, but it gives a feeling of how small yet how powerful it is! I love this kit... definitely my favorite host so far. And the EzFocus Adapter matches PERFECTLY, well worth the extra money... If you buy this kit, get the EzFocus adapter with it! Keep up the great work Jay!
