I'll let you know. I'm still waiting on the driver/host to arrive for my current build (1A, 445, pressfit heatsink, 14500).

I know 1A is already pushing the 14500 so I'll do a 18650 next at 1.4A.

Reason for asking "pressfit" is I don't like aixiz modules. I feel they are the "bottleneck" for heat dissipation, no matter what the heatsink is made out of.

It's a single 18650 host...

You will want to spend the extra money on a high quality battery to handle your 1 Amp setting. It will probably demand 1.5 Amps current draw...

I turned mine up to 1065mA's and it is drawing 1600mA's from the battery. (Micro BoostDrive)

I recommend AW:
AW 18650 Protected 2600 mAh Rechargeable Lithium Battery - New Version

Hmmm... I have AixiZ modules for $5 bucks, but I already sent your package...

That's all you need:

* AixiZ module
* 445 diode
* 18650 battery

yeah ordered one from aixiz more than a week ago. its a kind of public holiday here atm so no post till today, but would have expected it by now

i have 2 diodes and about 8 18650s now lol, got another with my o-like 200mW red that arrived today. soon as i get a decent camera ill do a review on it and the 405nm 150mW. my laserbee metre should have arrived today too since they were holding it to ransom at the depot before delivery, need that for a good review too.

Looking forward to it! :)



Update:

For those who have orders for kits with me...

I just received another order of hosts today. But I have a back log of orders that I must fill on a 'date paid' basis to be fair to everybody.

Please continue to be patient and I will definitely get to your kit in the order it was placed...

Thanks for being so patient. I hope that when I get caught up (a couple of weeks), that I can keep plenty of hosts on hand and get back to my normal delivery times. (normally pretty fast)

I will contact you as I ship, and post as well.

P.S. I'm the biggest double and triple poster on the forum! :crackup:

But I just want to say that it is only in my FS threads. There is a method to my madness. I use the information to check on when responding to questions I get on orders shipped...

Thanks again for your patience! :)

Talk to you soon!
