It's way too small of a host for that...

Plus, you need two Li-Ion batteries for a linear driver...

But you can use a single battery for rhd's new linear driver for a 653 build. But still, a 10440 will not be much capacity to use at 1 Amp. (his driver is 1 Amp) In fact, a 10440 may not even handle that much output... (not sure)

Nice job, this build is great! I would like to get the full upgraded package...does this mean that I can adjust the output of the laser? Or is the driver "fixed" at potential?

You can set your driver how ever you would like, but in a small build with just a single 10440 battery, I would keep it at about 700mA's max. (IMO)

That said, unfortunately I don't have these hosts on hand any longer. If you find a source, then I can set you up with a kit...

Send me a PM! :beer:
