Hi guys i have a quick question for you. My 1 watt 520nm ple mini from jet lasers is on it's way. It says it takes 2 16340 batteries. I have never owned anything with these batteries before so when I received them I was surprised how small they were. I know the jetlasers house are pretty big even the mini so I'm worried I have the wrong batteries are there different types of 16340 batteries? I just want to be able to use the laser when it arrives.

I know you're thrilled with this, but it's better to google, everything you can search for with key" jetlaser "

I've looked everywhere and I cant find a video of them putting the batteries in the ple mini. The spec sheet says 2 16340 batteries which is what I have I have 3.7v 16340 batteries but the spec sheet says 3.6v 16340 which I cant find

Don't be too bothered by that, the way to install the battery will be the cathode that comes in contact with the host,3,7 and 3,6 is okay

Oh ok that pic helps I wasnt to worried about the voltage I am more worried about the size. I am just surprised how tiny the 16340s are compared to the 18650s that my other lasers use. I have never owned a jet laser before but I know even the ple mini is a rather large host so I was worried that the batteries would be to small

The PL-E mini web page Data Sheet also says it can also take 2 X 18350
Next time you buy batteries you might want to get some of those as the have a bit more capacity than 16340s do thus longer run time in between charges, however 2X 16340 are the correct batteries as well and it will work fine with them.

See Data Sheet on the Jetlasers product web page: https://www.jetlasers.org/index.php?id_product=71&controller=product#/1-finish-black/50-battery-no/53-switch_type-pl_e_mechanical/52-10x_beam_expander-no/49-goggles-no/34-power_levels-1w

Great choice of laser--enjoy it.

Not for the 1 watt 520... the 1 watt 520 says 2 16340s

Edit: never mind I do see on the top where it says the 18350s but this being my first jet laser I didnt want to take any chances and I seen at the bottom the 520nm requires 2 16340s

Thanks. This is my 2nd high power laser ever. About a week ago I got my first which is a 3 watt 445nm striker saber from sanwu and I absolutely love it. The build quality is just incredible. I was blown away by how well machined the host is. And the weight and materials used are top notch. I also just ordered a 500 mW 405nm Sanwu pocket series for something to be able to carry around easier. I really wanted the 488nm because I have never seen that color before in person but it's only 60mW and I wanted something with a bit more power. I was thinking about the 800 mW 445nm pocket series but as I already have the 3 watt striker saber i wanted to get a different wavelength. I really wanted to get the 520 1 watt striker saber from sanwu so I could have 2 of the same host with different wavelengths but the price difference between sanwu and jet lasers is huge

Hi
2mm wider than 18350’s and 10mm shooter than 18350’s . That 1W will suck up some juice with those batteries. 18350’s would have been better but not by much
Nevertheless enjoy your Big Green laser can’t get enough of 520’s

Hey I'm glad you commented on this post. I got out of the hospital yesterday and got a new phone and cant seem to remember my email address password so I sent a request to Microsoft to recover the account but they said it could take a while. Any way I dont have your email address any more. If I PM you my number can u call or text me so we can get you paid and building my 7 watt NUBM44 -V2 build. I have the money set aside and am ready to go

I got the beautiful Galaxy S10 plus. I went all out and got the 1TB of storage and 12 gigs of ram model in ceramic black. It seriously has better specs than my laptop. It uses the new 7nm snapdragon 855 chipset with an integrated on board AI processing unit :)

The first two digits tells you the diameter in mm and the last three tells you the length in mm with a decimal point between the last two digits i.e. a decimal point between the 4th and 5th digits like this 1634.0 and 1835.0 so 16340 is 16mm wide and 34.0mm long while an 18350 is 18mm wide and 35.0mm long.............................so if your battery tube will accept the 18mm wide cells then use 18350 cells as you will have more capacity ( run time ) as for 3.6 or 3.7v don't worry they both charge to a little over 4 volts anyway and the lasers driver will take care of it just fine, however don't over discharge you cells, when they get down to around 3.5v or there about I usually recharge them.

That dont make any sense because the difference in length between the 18650 and the 16340 is is way more than 1 millimeter so I believe that information is incorrect

Edit: the 18650 is about twice as long as the 16340

RedCowboy is referencing the18350 cell, not 18650.

Whoops lol I'm sorry. Goes to show you that I need to check my facts before calling someone out. I apologize.
Edit:
But to be fair in my post I was comparing the 16340 to the 18650 as I have never even seen a 18350 before
