Hey all.

I've been out of the laser hobby for about a year now. Before when I was making drivers not a whole lot of interest was shown in them + the tediousness of making them made me stop.

If you guys are interested in the drivers linked in my signature, and would totally buy like 5000 (okay maybe not quite so many but you get the point) please say so.

Unfortunately it might be a bit until I can actually start producing them again (due to money constraints..... and I also don't have a good test load anymore.)

But if there is genuine interest in them I'd be more than happy to start again.

Or if there is some "special" driver type that I don't cover I could give designing one a shot. I still have all of my equipment (cept the test load...) so it shouldn't be too difficult.

If you do take on the adventure I will be glad to beta test and resell for you!

Oh, and I would be interested in purchases of MoQ 10-30pcs at a time after I could properly test a driver, and run it through all my own test methods with some large dummy loads hooked up.

I wouldn't be looking for a massive amount but I do need 3 LOW powered drivers currently. I posted in the Drivers section. My only request is through holes for wiring. I am not so great with solderpads on the Aixiz drivers. But I have soldered multiple with no issues that have through holes.

I would like to see more external pot adjustable drivers available. Specifically a compact, boost driver with an external pot adjustment.

Or Hi/Low mode toggled by switch. :)

What would be the max amperage I could get using one of your boosts and a single E-Fest 14500 800mAh High Drain?

Most likely about 1.5A, you can probably push 1.6-1.7A if you are willing to risk tripping the protection on your battery. :)

Sweet.

I was hoping I could get 1.5a to push a NDG7475 1 watt. (I want to build a matched set of 1 Watt Red, Blue, Green, Violet at some point)

I have found a tidy side fire flashlight that will fit a 20x25mm pill.



Would there be anything I could do with a pair of 14250s that I couldn't do/do better with a single 14500?

Nice! Good luck with your builds.
By the way, you might be able to get 2A, possibly even 2.4-2.5A if you use an efest 700mAh IMR14500.
I do not think you can accomplish anything more with 2x14250 than with 1x14500, as long as you have the right boost driver.

Which flashlight did you find?

Edit: +rep! :)

I forget that higher mAh normally means more resistance. Here are the Batteries I'm looking at. I'll look at some 700mAh.

2x Efest 14500 800mAh



Here is the host, I have one in hand (I can answer any questions) and I'm going to start a thread where I ask what parts to strip from the board. It has a 3.5 charging port.

14500 side fire host.



On a side note I have a drill press set up like a lathe and I ordered bit's and taps so I can tap and drill about anything (even counter sink) for an Aixis module.



So in keeping it on topic. I'd want, at the very least, 5 of Hiemals drivers as funds become available.

Ah, guys, I'm sorry.... I don't know if I'll actually be able to do this now, I've just gone through literal hell with some social situations....

.... It's a very long story but... yeah I apologize. I'm trying my best to get through this shit but depression is a bitch.
