Pretty much self-explanatory.

I was just browsing around and found that Rayfoss has neat $15 torch hosts.
Also, I cannot help but drool all over the place when I see first two products under rayfoss 'green lasers' category.

Also, O-like's own 300-400mW laser torches have extraorinary hosts which I'd sure like to make into my own laser creation...

Should O-like stock such (and any other possible) hosts, but not flashlights that need custom machined heatsinks, I mean laser-meant hosts.
If flashlights would be stocked, then they MUST include a heatsink that accepts 12 mm modules of all kinds.

What do you guys think?


Thanks guys! :wave:

I think the hosts for their higher end lasers look brilliant... absolutely.

It depends on how much she sold them for.
I rather pick out a slick flashlight from DX, and have someone make a custom heatsink for it.
The rayfoss host you talk about is designed for a 532nm module. I do remember someone making a 405nm out of it with some modifications. Their great at $15 bucks a pop if thats what she still sells them for.

It sure would be nice if laser-style hosts were readily available. I have a hard time gutting a flashlight to use as a laser host, and not keeping it to use as a flashlight. I usually end up buying two at a time. RPG style hosts, or similar, would be awesome.

Well you see, you ain't finding those biga$$ RPL - Aries (whatever you like to call them) style hosts anywhere.

I am just a happy customer of O-like, I like their support and quality, and I thought it would be nice, especially since Susie asked me to help her keeping an eye out on the forum regarding suggestions and new things they should stock on, by desires of their customers.

So I came up with my first idea, new hosts.
They seriously lack the empty hosts on their site, everything else is there.
Oh and, diameter of green and other modules is aproximately the same, where is the problem in installing or swaping them out?

Yeah, would be nice to have a host good2go since most of us cannot machine out HS or hosts.

I love Cree C6 hosts for example, but you cannot stick to only one... you gotta have more!
For instance, that big lasers' host from O-like, I am sure a lot of people would pick that one for installation of 8x / 12x diodes in there because of massive heatsinks, and because of the fancy button ofcourse :na:


If I can make a success out of this poll, I could convince Susie to consider selling those, I remember asking her for hosts of that lasers and she said that they do not sell them. Which was a dissapointment.

Anyhow, I'd like more small pocket compact hosts and enormus RPL style hosts.
The middle is mostly covered by flashlights from DX and similar .
But also I'd like to see that rayfoss $15 hosts at O-like for equal or lower price.

Which ones, O-like or Rayfoss?
I think that Rayfoss first 4 results at Green Lasers section are the most beautiful hosts seen on planet earth, one with gold button and the other with silver, but with minor differences also.

Apsolute WIN.

They are followed by O-like hosts of their torches, they look great, heatsink seems massive and I like the button also.

This is a very good idea. I am also a satisfied customer of O-like and it's always good to be able to buy hosts with heatsinks instead of finding someone to machine them for you.
Also I hope they will be cheaper than at Rayfoss.

Yes, it would be great if more places start selling some good "set-to-go" laser hosts.

Hmm, It seems the Aixiz module fits into the chrome blu-ray focusable hosts fairly well. I would love to have one or two of these around.

Funny enough, couple of months ago I tried to pull a GB on these hosts, as I saw the atractive also, and Susie said well if there is enoigh interest, they could sell in bulk.

As I starter to gather people around , she says: I contacted [somebody], you need at least 200pcs order
I was like: WOW,
I had like 10 people interested at the time :D

Now is an excellent oportunity to try getting some nice hosts from O-like , including (maybe) this one.

That's great news! I hope we'll be able to buy empty hosts from O-like soon.
I don't understand why someone would not want that.

Someone voted NO. I don't know why.

Anyhow, Susie is not replying today so I think we have another day to collect as many YES votes as possible.
