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:
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
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.
