WTH, this site is being blocked by my employer... I had to go through a proxy to our DC to be able to see it, but I see it now:)

oh no, I've been lumped into the "funny guy" category. :can:

not *too* many pictures floating around the web -- so it *is* the same?
I mean, die4thing's design was pretty good after all. :)

...but as far as I know, it's the same TEC-on-a-heatsink design - but I don't think it's exactly the same heatsink. Though a chip heatsink is a chip heatsink is a chip heatsink. :p

Does look like a tempting unit. What would happen if tried to measure my 2W Frankenstein on it? Would it just stop @ 2W or could it damage the sensor? When set to 1750mA it is putting out 2080mW.:eg:

The sensor has a measured damage threshold of 37W/cm2. Anything above that power density will cause damage.

Anything above 2W just wouldn't show up.

dang, I was pretty sure fire breathing dragons would spawn out of the battery compartment.

Yeah... Robin did the 1st TEC on heatsink design that I saw...

We decided to improve a little on Robin's original design by finding
a heatsink with more cooling fins and cooling surface area and by
mounting the Sensor in the recessed center to protect the Sensor
from accidental mechanical damage...
This was not by chance... it was researched and tested...:beer:

BTW... heatsinks are not all the same...

Robins heatsink had a fairly good thermal mass but his Sensor
was out in front and not protected against air flow or physical
damage... The heatsink we finally chose solved these problems...:cool:

Looks pretty good! I'll have to seriously consider which LPM I will get now (even more than before). Can't wait to hear some reviews about this unit.
