Literally :D



Just did this out of pure boredom.

Even wired the original LED to come on green. Has a simple toggle switch mounted in the side.

Direct driven with a 5.6 ohm 10W sandbar, and it's just a boring short die open can diode. Not capable of any real power, so it's a pretty boring build.

I did this after discovering the circuitry of the original battery charger is complete rubbish, I wouldn't trust such a volatile battery on it!

If you shine another laser at the aperture, it might charge the battery :D

Probably wouldn't be able to get much heatsinking in there unless you had access to a mill, and could mill a custom shaped block of aluminium. There is a fair bit of space in there though, easily enough.
