There was a discussion in another thread about getting these 5mW 650nm modules just for the cases.  I decided to try them out.  In "bulk" I paid $2.07 apiece for them.  They arrived quickly in a padded envelope and anti-static bubble wrap.  They were individually sealed in plastic.  The one I tested was putting out 4mW, but that's not why I got them.  The diode punched out easily.  I compared it to an aiXiz module.




The aiXiz module is 35mm overall.  The Sure is 32.5mm
The OD and ID of the units are the same (12mm & 9.6mm)
The heads are the same except that the "threads" on the Sure are 4mm and the aiXiz is 3mm.
The lenses are plastic and the same as the aiXiz.  The spring is a little shorter.


The biggest difference is in the length.  Since the overall length is the same and the heads are the same, that only leaves the back of the module to show the difference.  Inside, the aiXiz module is 22mm deep.  The Sure module is only 18mm deep.  This will probably not make much difference UNLESS you are trying to place a rkcstr (or similar) driver INSIDE the module.

If you want to play with some of these, I have some extras available at cost plus shipping.
[highlight]**EDIT**[/highlight]  That was in May.  I don't have any to sell/trade ;)

Peace,
dave

I always felt slightly guilty destroying the perfectly good Aixis diodes for the housing.

Dave - can you send me all you have left, and send me a pay-pal or Google invoice ? you can send either one of them to : stonergl@gmail.com I think I may be able to carry these instead of constantly being screwed by Aixiz, if they carry a decent amount of stock ! If you wouldn't mind sending me their web addy (or email info) at the same time, This could be the break-away from Aixiz I have been so desperately looking for ! Lemme know !!! Dang....prices would have to drop on my site, too :p hehehehehehe ! Damned nice find, man !

I dropped a few in the post for you to play with. You can send me the usual pint of blood for payment. I've almost finished the last one [smiley=evil.gif]

You can probably get a better deal with them by ordering directly with larger purchases.

Only 10 left folks ;)

Peace,
dave

I'll get the extra bedroom set up for him. Alejandro (our gardener) is going to be very disappointed ;)

Only seven left, folks.

Dave - when you put your mind to shipping something, it gets DONE ! They arrived safely today - and sitting here next to the Aixiz modules, they look SUPER TINY - but in all honesty, most folks don't even use the back ends - and the folks at Sure have already replied to my request for larger numbers (like 200 at a time, or so !) and they really seem to be nice folks ! I think these are definitely a mark in the "WIN" collumn for the hobbyist - very nice little units ! I cannot thank you enough for sending me some to play with - you da MAN !
