Hello all

I want to post something about the MSV1 host from Sinner. :wave:
He was kind enough to sent me a Magic Stick v1 for a build. The host made from aluminium. It accepts 12mm module for the laser diode. The finish is highly polish. I don't know if Sinner has his own hands on this but the polish is excellent on the surface. A hand glove is recommend to prevent fingerprints. :)
The host accept one 18650 cell or two 16340/18350 cells. It need some adjustments for the exact length. That is easy done with the spring length.

MSV1 is a hard to remember name for this host. It is more a product code so I name it "Greed" after the 7 deadly sins : greed, wrath, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony. Sinner was the manufacturer of this host. :evil:

Okay let's move on the pictures. The finish build first. :yh:









BUILD :

The expanded view of the MSV1 host. The build is pretty easy. It accepts 17mm round driver.


The tailcap needed some work. It was just a wire attach to the white switch. I found a brass slug for the battery negative pole and soldered it to the wire.


Then the slug was fixed in place with epoxied glue. It take 5 min to harden so work fast. :)


The 4x AMC7135 driver. Normally this driver has several modes but I omitted them by soldering directly to the ic pins.


A spring was attach on the other side. I have measured the available room in the battery compartment and it needs just a spring to make a firm contact.


1.4A current, just what the doctor ordered. :)


The 17mm round driver fits very good in the pill.


A Mitsubitshi 500mW diode in a copper module was attach on the other side of the pill. The module was locked with a setscrew on the outside. It was better to hide to somewhere.


The focus adapter has a hole for the chrome ring. You will need this ring for the lensbarrel. The ring is pressed in the focus adapter.


Voila the build is finished ! :D


BEAMSHOTS :










With a 650-G-2 lens. After 1 min the output was dropping fast.
I measured 1181mW on the Ophir LPM seconds from the start.


I hope you like it. Thanks for watching. :thanks::wave:

Very nice. That is some major power for such a small host. I like the look of that host also and I normally prefer dark non polished types but that stick is pretty cool. Nice beam shots.

Wow, that's very nice. I've always really liked that host but the white switch at the back looks out of place to me. Nice mirror finish host and then you have that boring switch.

Wow nice build blord :gj:

I really like the color of the 638nm ... I'm about to build a 300mW one in my O-like power rock host ... :)

Good Job, That is a sweet host. I knew sinner was going to prove to be a valuable asset the first time I saw his prototype.
