Yes im talking about the DX driver :)

Im using 2x 18350, BUT, i didnt screw the pill all the way in ,otherwise there wont be enought room for them and the - base of the batteries will deform due to pressure (wich happened to mine :p)

Just use a 8.4V< cap.

(Connect the - from cap to - output of driver and the same for the +`s)

thanks man! i think im going to do the same as you, it will make the cost of my project alot lower if i use the DX driver :p

if you dont screw the pill all the way dont you have problems with the heatsink?

no offense to blord but he's in Belgium and shipping times would be alot longer then from Survival Laser if your in the states.
Lol, he is in Belgium too :)
I have linear drivers and buck drivers if you want.

The BlitzBuck V3.1 Round adjustable buck driver is $19.99 and you can get 10% off. Survival Laser Fixed Current Driver is $19.99 and you can also get 10%. so how is one cheaper then the other???
Right, same price with the LPF discounts. We're also offering free shipping with a minimum order.

My 445 laser only costed 80$ thanks to that driver :D

The picture you see is actually the driver Im using to power the 445.

I used a 1 Ohm Res (its under the cap and it has the white wires) in parallel with the "R200" to get exacly 1.5A. The higher the resistence you choose to parallel, the higher the output (only true when paralleling)

If you`re building yours in a C6 you might wanna choose a lower current, thats my advice :)

About the pill, it depends of the sink. The Gold plated copper sink i´m using in my 405 build is short enough to avoid touching the pill, that way i can screw the head normally. But if yours is longer then you would have to file it down a bit.

Oh if you use this driver, dont solder the case pin to the neg pin! The driver is not continuos neg.

You know what? Just had the safety cap and dont worry about resistors, the driver will output 1.25A stock wich is around 1W with 3 element glass lens :beer:
Actually you don't even need to add the cap. They work perfectly as-is. :)
