Hey guys,

im currently looking for a host for a laser im interested to build. Survivallaser caught my attention, and i was interested to order the bargain kit w/ the S4 so i can just drop in a 12mm module from DTR and be done with it, however, when i've realized that i would have to pay 25$ for shippping for a 50$ order that was pretty much a killer for me. Unfortunately, i am not able to find something like it that ships from the EU, thus im getting to you with the question if something like it even exists.

Ideally i'd be looking at a host that fits a 12mm axiz module, two CR123's, has a driver pill, and if possible, has a side clickly switch as opposed to a tail one. Oh and it obviously should be somewhat decent at disappating / transferring heat.

Thanks!

Done that now, sorry for that.

I've looked around quite extensively on ebay, and the only host that i've found that seemed decent-ish was this one: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Waterproof-Focusable-Adjustable-Housing-Case-for-Laser-Pointer-Module-Mount/120921416091

I've contacted the seller however, and was told that it would not fit a 12mm axiz module, so that wasnt any good. From the link you've left it's not really apparent, but maybe you know, does that host have a driver pill? I'd prefer that in combinition w/ a regulateable driver so i can swap out the diode in the future w/o needing to get a new driver for it as well, just drop in a new module from DTR and be good to go sort o say.

There are many that will take a 12mm module if you search "Laser Hosts" on ebay. Here are a couple of them.

If yu will pay shipping there are many excellent host by LPF makers available such as these

Unfortunately, neither of those hosts seems to have a driver pill from what i can tell, an shipping costs are the reason i haven't ordered from survivallaser in the first place. I guess i might've to bite the bullet and order from them afterall.
