OK, I finally got this one finished! This is the Star Trek Classic Phaser which started out as a Jayrob Hot option kit which I modified. First, I'd like to thank Jayrob for the Great Job he did on this project to get me started. I sent him this phaser and had him do his thing which was install the Copper heatsink, wire the safty switch and Install the LED Power-On light as well as drill,size,prep & position His EZ focus custom adaptor to my 445 Aixiz lens. After successfully building my Assualt phaser at 1.7Watts, I decided that this Phaser should be a bit more powerful; so I decided to re-wire it to run on the 3.7v AW IMR14500 re-chargeables to provide the power required. Then installed a finned aluminum heatsink to mount the flexdrive to after turning it up to 1.5Amps. - Here are the results::beer:

Nice job, nice video too!

Here it is embedded for you:


I have done testing with running 2 X 14500 Li-Ion's in parallel and it can be done easily with a slight modification to the battery compartment, and re-wiring it for parallel...

The one thing that I found, is that if doing so, it's better to regulate the voltage going to the sound board and the 3 volt LED 'armed' indicator LED using a 7833 voltage regulator. (3.3 volts)

But lithium primaries are fine without any voltage regulators for a 445 build using 2 X e2 lithium AA's in series if you are ok with 650mA's. (it may be able to be set higher than that, but I know for sure 650mA's is good)

That's still a class 4 laser!

The e2 lithium batteries in series, actually have more capacity that 2 X 14500's in parallel...

* 2 X IMR 14500 in parallel = 1200mAh's capacity
* 2 X e2 lithium primaries in series = about 3000mAh's capacity
