SBA, be sure to put a real nightmare of a diode in my build. I'll be happy to post pics and plenty of burning vids. :D

I'm thinking of making my Envy a 1W 638nm. Nobody's been playing with those lately, and I am less than excited by the 445s these days.

I sooooo need a 488nm diode....

488nm diodes exit you know it's jus how much do you need both kidneys? ;)

Even though I'm going to be repairing one 445 and probably building a 3W monster just to have in my collection the novelty of 445nm wore off pretty fast. 532 gets a "meh" from me as well.

One doesnot simply Overblue himself :na: I had several blues over the year , transplanted, sold, upgraded, BUT there is always that one special blue everyone needs, its just enough.. Like my V5 here, I sold the 3.5W because I really don't want two 3W+ Lasers .. One 3W is all it takes but if you don't have it.. You never know what you're missing!

Yeah...I have a car running on a spun bearing insert. I'm in no position to buy a 488nm diode..

Re: Pre-Sale: The MS-Envy - 18650 Custom Host

I'm new to this whole thing, but I'd like to build or have built a burning hobby laser. I do like your unique design though. Doesn't look like a flashlight for once. If I'm reading this right, this host is 5.6" total length? or 10.6"? What is average size and heft for these? Is it cheaper and easier to build a larger laser than a smaller? Personally I wouldn't care if it was the size of a 6 D cell Mag light if it worked better/was cheaper.

Just bought my 445nm 9mm Diode In V4 Copper Module W/Leads & Three Element Glass Lens from DTR today.

Cant wait to get this host so I can put together this host!

Very excited. This will be my 3rd laser!

UPDATE: The hosts are with the Customs in Cincinnati, OH. Just cleared the customs hope to be delivered by tomorrow! All US orders will ship right away, JAD Orders will have to wait..

The host is 5.6" in length, 30mm OD. The heatsink weighs 200g which is twice the weight of a Maglite HS (85g) and ten times the weight of C6 (18-20g)
The total weight of the host is just above 200g.
Send me a PM or post :takeit: So i could add your order to the list!

What do you mean by JAD orders will need to wait? Did you not ship those ones or do you just mean SBA has to put them together for you/us before shipping?

Just to make sure they are working as they should be, Sort of a quality assurance at SBA's end :)
