Way to go Rich ! That's a good use of a mini-mag. Never heard of a 4500 before, figures you come up with some new :) coolness :)

Hi BM,
Yes enough power for the M or A 140 diode set to 1.8A or power. My Al Mini does 1900+W's with 2=4500 cells/G2 lens..Thanks buddy

Hi,
Doing well D thank you and yes everyone BM and vision it takes 2-14500 AW's. Sorry had a brain fart for a moment was stuck on stupid when i posted. Mini Mags are a nice small build, fitting the pill is the hard part being it's very small to machine but challenging . Had these laying around for about 15 years from when my wife was working for the bank. Thanks for looking guys ..

Hey Rich, you could always buck the high power trend, and put a couple of nice single mode diodes in these Minis, maybe a PLT5 450nm, or an Opnext 638nm, or even a PL520B, I haven't seen any of those in builds recently!
Whatever you choose, I'm sure they'll look great. :)

This reminds me, I've got a couple of these mini mags from work from years ago, I think they were from a suggestion award or something.
I think a good suggestion would be to make a nice laser out of them!

Hi BT,
Sounds like a great idea i love the SM diodes, these mini's take 2 cells so i would turn out a pill for it and press it in the batter tube just enough to take 1 cell or use a dummy cell behind the live one . I have a few Camo EDC's i'm working on in different Camo pattern for some SM diode
