Jay, can heat really be THAT bad and if you do it right would it really heat up so much? I mean don't get me wrong but i think de-soldering is far less risky then using your "snips" (I heatsink them when I'm de-soldering)jayrob said:Thank you Dave.
As Dave said, build quality is the key. The parts used in my Pocket Pal builds, are nothing but the best! Using a FlexDrive driver by DrLava, an 803T blu-ray diode (harvested and cleaned using no heat), and mounted into a custom heatsink and a nice host that uses 3 X AAA batteries.
The 3 X AAA batteries are a large capacity for such a small host! This driver/host combination also gives you the option of using AAA rechargeable batteries!
Thanks sk8!thesk8nmidget said:also i will agree jay makes a good laser and i have yet to hear anything bad about his builds.
