Hi all,

I searched around the forums and wasn't quite sure where to post this. I bought a custom laser for a friend of mine about 2 years ago, the laser is no longer working for him, and the builder has apparently vaporized - or taken up completely new hobbies. I'm wondering if someone can point me in the direction of a custom builder who might be able to take apart this 445nm (3w, mag lite housing) job and figure out why it's not working.

When my friend first gave the thing back to me, the batteries were toast - he let them drain down too low. So I ordered a new set from Mountain Electronics and charged them up - still no dice. I'm not really interested in taking this thing apart and learning what makes them glow. :)

Hopefully someone can give me some direction, and again, if this is in the wrong section, I apologize...

Thanks!

I'm in Northern Virginia... I can ship to wherever. My thought is that the diode is toast? I'm guessing either damaged from the batts being to low (if that's a thing), or perhaps he put them in backwards after a long time?I just ordered brand new EVVA 26650 (5200mAh) cells... all charged up.

Whoever wants to take a crack at it... :) Thanks for the replies, fellas

Thanks for the replies and PMs, fellas! I've sent some PMs back!

And yes, it is a 2-cell D model... it has what looks like a nylon sleeve inside so the 26650s are a snug fit.
