This is a host kit by Lifetime17. Nice little host. Heatsink dictates the duty cycle at about 1 minute. I don't mind my m140's getting warm or a little hot they are tough. Its nice to see so much beam from such a small host.
Nothing complicated with the wiring and fits a full sized module with room to recess the module to set base focus.
Power 1.3w 2 element. 1.5w g2
Battery size 14500
Flexdrive set to ~1.4a

That's a nice little host for a m140 build. Lot of power in a small host. Sweet!

That's a good looking little build you have there. Looks like a mini light saber in that last photo! :D
It ought to run for quite a while with that m140 set at 1.3A, it should make make for a great EDC laser.
BTW - Good job on that host kit, Lifetime, sweet heatsink!
