My 445nm Build with the 18650 Aurora SS R2 Cree From Jayrob!!! "Picture Heavy"

This is My 445nm Build That i got from Jayrob Basic Kit. You can Can check out the kit Here http://laserpointerforums.com/f64/fs-stainless-steel-18650-kit-polished-perfect-445-a-52159.html This Host is so SWEET!!!:drool: Its called The Aurora SS Cree R2 18650. I Choose to get a aluminum heatsink witch works really good at the current i have it at right now, Witch is set at 520ma using a flex v5 until i get my other driver in witch will get boosted to 1050ma.:wave: I will upgrade to a copper heatsink once i get the new driver in. The reason why iam not using this v5 permanent its because its apart of my other build. "12x Build" I could not wait to see the blue so i took apart my 12x to use the driver. So once the new one come in i will put everything back together.

This Host is extremely shine i love it you can see your reflexion in it.:) It has a blue reverse clicky at the tail end and glow in the dark washers. "Nice touch Jayrob" :) I am Using a XJ-A130 diode With the Flex v5 set at 520ma. The heat sink performs very well gets slightly warm to the touch if that with 1 min on 30 sec off. I am Using my 405-G-1 Lens also from Jayrob right now because i order an Aixiz 405 Lens and there has been some issues with the coating. It has a blue tint to the glass and i was told to not use it until we find out what is going on from Aixiz.Iam sorry i dont have a Laser meter yet but i will soon. :D

Overall I am VERY HAPPY with this build from Jayrob.:thanks:

Now what you all were waiting for Pic's!!!
Warning "Picture Heavy":na:























Thanks For looking.....:)

Note: There are beam shots on Post #'s 22,29,33 and more CooL Videos on the second page.

Same host I have on backorder with flamin. One of the sexiest IMO and I just have a bit of a stainless steel fetish.

Nicely done. You might think about getting an E-Z-FOCUS Adapter so you don't fry your finger tips while focusing that MONSTER.....

Maybe heavy pics but it only takes 1-1.5 secs to load them all :D

Nice host, always liked the polish metal ones. Are these generally more expensive to get chrome plated lasers? Maybe thats half the reason why my 5mw pen from amazon was $90 10 years ago...It's scratched and under it, its copper :D

hehe..:D Glad the loaded fast..:D

These host are Stainless steel and are polished and iam sure Jayrob highly polished it before sending it out because its shiny.:cool: It probably doesn't come this polished from the factory:D

They are SS all the way through. Its not Chrome Plated or something like that.

Edit: It comes straight from the factory/manufacture polished...:)

Nice pictures...

The host comes polished! I did not do any polishing...

One of the sweetest hosts I've seen. Just like my polished SS CR2 kit but bigger. :cool:

Most of them are polished with a blue tail cap just like yours. But I can't guarantee that the tail cap will always be blue. Because the DX order page shows a GITD tail cap.

Also, some are not quite as polished as others. But they all have a very very nice finish. I love stainless steel... :cool:

I have to say I completely love everything about your pictures!
Blue beams with a sharp violet edge to them & violet splash, great against you counter top.
Really love that haze clinging & wisping off the host!
That would be dry ice yes? Did you do any editing / processing or are they just straight up?

It seems you using a Kodak Zi8 video camera. How about a video! :D:D

Re: My 445nm Build with the 18650 Aurora SS R2 Cree From Jayrob!!! "Picture Heavy"

Man, that sure is a nice looking host, im kinda regretting not getting the SS instead of the basic one. Perhaps I may look into getting one, but then I would end up with 3 445nm builds, and it'd be hard to top the power of my basic kit and still have a usable duty cycle.
I like the smoke effect in the last pic.

Here is a shot from my 18650 basic---1.1A:



Also, you may want to upgrade to the copper heatsink if you plan to take it up to 1A, it gets hot very quickly.
