Re: T67 Grande 850nm IR Illuminator Torch

Heh, 900 lumens of 850nm, huh? I think you'd need a couple megawatts for that to happen. Google says osram black is 1W of IR output for 1A input, and the beam profile of an LED is vastly superior to the beam profile of your typical 808nm diode (of which the "dot" looks like a stack of bars). That large lens should make for a great throw, so I don't see the need for "upgrading" to laser in the first place. LEDs are much safer and far more robust than lasers anyway.

Re: T67 Grande 850nm IR Illuminator Torch

I failed to mention my intent; although it is a IR illuminator/flashlight, I was looking to use it differently as a host for a single mode laser diode as a uber low divergence laser through allowing the raw output of the beam to expand to over 50mm before collimation. This lens probably won't work well, I could replace it with a large PCX lens instead. I didn't pay any attention to the lumens, zero lumens to my eyes and not much interested in the IR function. I can't ever believe them anyway, from all of the real world measurements I've seen made for flashlights from China, they always differ by huge amounts from what they advertise. Saying their flashlights have 2X more than they really do isn't unusual, often worse.

This looks like a clone of the uniquefire 1504

Re: T67 Grande 850nm IR Illuminator Torch

Thanks, I found those at a much better price but so far, no one who sells just one. They use one battery instead of two, that is fine for me:

uniquefire 1504 - search result, Shenzhen Homesafety Electronic Co., Ltd.

Does anyone know how the focus works? Does the whole pill inside slide in and out? It appears to work that way from the photo's and this:

Does anyone know how the focus works? Does the whole pill inside slide in and out while the lens remains fixed? It appears to work that way from the photo's, and seeing you can buy the pill with the diode mounted on it separately from another seller.
the focus works by unscrewing the top of the head. the head screws up and down and you can focus your beam that way. the pill is stationary.

Re: T67 Grande 850nm IR Illuminator Torch

Thanks, I was just about to edit my question because I realized it all depends on how you look at it, either the head moves, or the body.... I thought a better way of saying it is the head moves in and out, since you would be holding the body of the flashlight :p

Still haven't been able to find a source to buy just one of those uniquefire 1504's.

Re: T67 Grande 850nm IR Illuminator Torch

here is a 1504



here is a 1405


only difference between the two(if I am not mistaken is the amount of batteries it will hold.
for an IR version, you would probably need to go to Aliexpress to get one.

Re: T67 Grande 850nm IR Illuminator Torch

Thanks, but I need the pill to mount the laser diode in, the page says no contents inside, just the tube. Did you buy one and know what it has? Also, their page doesn't tell me if the lens is in the assembly or not, every photo is from such an angle you can't see.

+Rep to you for helping. Thank you.

The add is a misprint, they are in the pricess of fixing it, you get everything in the picture for a host, you just do not get the driver and LED and mcpcb.

Re: T67 Grande 850nm IR Illuminator Torch

It is a toss up with Gearbest, i have had things get to my door in 7 days and some take 25 days.

Re: T67 Grande 850nm IR Illuminator Torch

When clicking on the link I provided to GearBest here in the forum it first flashes to ShareSale and then to GearBest... Hummm..... any idea what's that about? Makes me nervous to see that.

Re: T67 Grande 850nm IR Illuminator Torch

it is just a redirect that gearbest goes through. nothing to be worried about.
