I've been surfing the Internet, looking around to see what sort of flashlight-based host I'd like to put my first build into. And I've found a LOT of possibilities.

I wanted to provide the list to all members here in case you see something interesting that you'd like to try.

Disclaimer: I'm not sure if these hosts would have enough room inside for the Aixiz + driver + batteries. This is just a list of ideas. I do not own any of these to take measurements. And some of these hosts may be repeats of hosts used for builds on LPF already.

I have not included O-like or Rayfoss or DX in this list, because I'm sure all of you are familiar with their hosts already.


LEDshoppe:

New Design 3AAA/CR123A CREE Flashlight:


RC-B3 AAA CREE LED Flashlight:

Buckmasters Twin-Task 2L:

(mmm.... camo)


Surefire: (These flashlights are stupidly expensive, but I really love this one!)

V2 Vampire Dual-Spectrum LED:




UltraFire (WhaFat Technological Co.,Ltd): No direct links here, but you can find them on their website. I think some are popular hosts already. Slow loading....

It might be ugly, but it's CHEAP!

Strait-Line 30 Ft. Laser Level: (It rotates 360° - could be interesting?)

Well, that's all for now. I'll probably add to this post as I find more. Thanks for looking, and I hope one of these will make a good host for my (and your) project.

If you know for a fact that a particular host definitely IS or IS NOT suitable to be a laser host, please let everyone know in this post.

Thank you!

Some of those are pretty interesting. You weren't kidding about the image heavy part. Hahaha.

Oh and a good amount of those look like some of Jayrob's kits. If you like the one's you've posted you should check his out. He does fantastic work. :D

Thanks everyone. I guess it could be a nice all-in-one-place kind of reference thread. Like I said, when I find more, I'll add to my post.

Now thats wicked looking :eek:
Yeah, I imagined a green beam coming out of that one, reflecting off the silver "wicked" head. I bet that would be awesome!
