I am selling this new Osram 450nm laser in the famous C6 host. The host needs no introduction, it is a versatile host with a great look.
It has an Osram 450nm diode direct press in the aluminium heatsink. This diode gives a nice single mode dot. The laser is powered by the Ben Boost driver. The front is polished for a shiny look.
The Ultrafire C6 host has a blue tailcap and a black lenscap. The lens is a Aixiz acrylic. This gives in my opinion visually the best looking dot. The lens has no problems with this laser at this power level. Also I made a custom laser warning label to match the wavelength and power.

The Ben Boost driver was set at 373mA which gives a power of ~240mW. Despite not needed the driver is heatsinked at the pill. Only one 3.7V 18650 battery is needed for the working of the laser.
Every component is brand-new. I have tested the laser for few minutes continuous on and everything went fine. The laser gets barely warm and I recommend 60sec on/10sec off.

I am asking $150 for the laser.
I can send it worldwide with registered mail only.
PM if you want one or have any questions.
I will donate 5% of the final price to the laserpointerforum. Without the forum this sale wasn't possible.

***the person must be 18 years or older and know the laser safety rules***

How much can these diodes handle, speaking of current? Are they the same diodes used in the laserlands 450nm pointers?

I don't know about the Laserlands pointers. They could be the same. I bought the bare diodes and not harvested from pen.
I have tested till 300mW and they are still going strong. No degradation or loss in power.

Bump, still available. :)

Dot camparison at 12 meter or 40 feet.
up : 240mW Osram

That looks really cool. I want a diode like that. I want to build one myself. I just don't see what people like about the c6. IMHO it doesn't look very good. What's so good about it?

Inmation what it will output with a G1 lens :)

Very nice build, as alway's.

Still enjoying mine.

Good luck with the sale m8.

The C6 host is a sleek laser host. It doesn't resemble a flashlight host.
It is indeed a host with a long history but it is still going strong. I like it very much :)

Not every diode can go that high. I have seen a reports that a PL450 has failed at this current output.

Nice very tight beam with the Osram diodes. It beats the M140s in that catagory.

Is this beam even more visible than an m140 because you can pull the beam so much tighter?

I suppose the PL450 has the advantage of brighter beam due tighter beam spec but the 445nm can surpass it by setting at higher power.

PL450 ===> beauty
M140 ===> beast :)

Yeah I have a beast 445. I am selling it and I want something that will still amaze a crowd when I shine it in the sky at night. I once went down to the beach with it and this huge group of people were having a bonfire so I shone my 445 up in the sky. They all turned around and were like "WHOA!!" --it was cool. I want something tht will still be a crowd pleaser.

Any testing results for running these at ~440 mA? I searched and could not find anything, but you said you had driven up to 300mW+ so I figured it was worth asking.

Why do you want to run the diode at 440mA ? I have tried 400mA and the diode survives but that is already three times the nominal current.
Maybe you have a fixed value driver at 440mA ?

IIRC Kizdawg has the highest powered SM450. Don´t know the values, but his one is outputting over 400mW.

I won´t run these too high. Just enjoy the nice SM beam for now, also indoors.

Next year we´re maybe getting our hands on the Soraa 750mW SM!
