Yea. It might be possible if you get rid of the stock driver and make your own. But even then it will be a challenge. The single AAA ones are tiny.

Im not sure how much you can shorten the module, its been a little bit since I looked at one but I think I remember being able to unscrew the module to seperate it from the collimating lens. That with spring mods maybe enough room :thinking:

Then all you would have to do is have a work around for your optics.

Just brainstorming, its hard to speculate without host dimensions...

I dint think of that. Yea usually there is alot of extra metal that is not need after the collimating lens. It usually has threads witch in ment to screw into a NewWish Pen Host or torch like host. Get ride of that and i think that might be enough to still be able to use 2x AAA 1.5v cells in the host.:wave:

I've stuffed a green in one of my sipik hosts before without changing external dimensions on it, but it's a lot larger than a 1x AAA, and even then, had to switch from an 18650 to an 18500.

IIRC the green modules that I used a while ago where about 62-65mm long with the spring.

The shortest i've ever been able to modify one including the driver is 50mm. Though that is with a stock driver that comes on them I'm sure with a small form factor linear regulator another 10 mm could be shaved off of that

<<<<<HD Please.:cool:

Finished.:D

These Pens are So Nice. The aluminum they used is amazing. It polishes up great. I like them so much better like this. I have some more to go.:whistle:

excuse this noob question, How exactly can you polish off the anodising? What kind of device do you use that can get off the tough anodising yet give it a smooth finish?

I think you should keep selling the polished version. I know i'm planning on carrying them as soon as I can come up with decent drivers to package with them but I don't have time to do deanodizing and polishing so mine will be the normal hosts.

Ah. That might work for the 2x AAA hosts but I have a bunch of 1x AAA hosts as well. They'll need some sort of boost driver. I was thinking about going with an ak-007.
