Yes the +6watt 450nm is still for sale. The direct press copper heatsink does a great job of pulling heat from the diode which will help it's life span. That being said it is still smaller than the enormous regular aluminum ones some people are using so duty cycle should probably be kept to less than 60 seconds give or take.Still for sale?
I'm intrested in this. Time to take the next step from my 3 watt zero laser.
whats the duty cycle?
yeah my zero laser is only aluminum.Yes the +6watt 450nm is still for sale. The direct press copper heatsink does a great job of pulling heat from the diode which will help it's life span.

It includes 1 Sony VTC5 but I can include another one for an extra $10 if you would like.yeah my zero laser is only aluminum.
How many batteries are you including 1 or 2?
Would my Samsungs that are 2600mAH work?
say I use it for 50 seconds how long should it be off for?
Hmmm extra ten not bad. Only places I know that sell them are vape shops and they want like 15 before tax. no idea if it's even a real sony they sell. I'll send you a pm later when I'm not busy.It includes 1 Sony VTC5 but I can include another one for an extra $10 if you would like.
I'm not sure about your Samsung I would need to know the model number in order to know if it will work. If it's a high discharge battery it will most definitely work though. Samsung makes very good batteries.
However, with a 7amp draw this laser drains a 2500mah battery rather quick. So, fyi the LG MJ1 and Sanyo 18650GA batteries are both 3500mAh and have a max discharge of 10A which can easily handle the current draw of this laser. If you want really long battery run times those two are definitely your best bet. The Sanyo doesn't voltage sag quite as much as the MJ1 in my experience but both are still awesome choices for this laser and will allow for the longest possible run time. I recommend grabbing a couple next time you go battery shopping.
I would use a 50/50 on/off duty cycle so if it's on for 50 second then let it cool for 50 seconds. You could probably get away with a shorter cooling time just use your touch to get a feel for how quick it heats up and cools down.
I typically don't collect lasers that use multimedia diodes because I prefer the nice beams single modes make. I had the cylindrical because I built a NUBM44 for the power and planned on building a NUBM07E. I decided to sell the 44 and still haven't got around to 07E so I am selling the lenses to support a different hobby for now.Hi Glutton,
The fact that you sell the cylindricals - does it mean that you lost interest in them and found a better way to tame beams or that you will be able to get more in the future?
Can I still hope for the 2nd GB to happen?
Glutton the C6 is fabulous. I love the copper heat sink, the tight focus ring and the obvious build quality.
I didn't need a sixth burner but you left me no choice.
I have 4 pairs in use and only 3 unused pairs, I have projects for many more but I will make do somehow, I may have to repurpose some, also I think I could surface mount 2 diodes on a copper backing with only heatshrinked pinholes drilled in the copper backing mount and get 2 diodes stacked on 1 pair of cylindrical if I UV glue by the edges with hand made mounts, but as the lenses are 12mm tall and diodes 9mm if I stack them touching that's 9mm center to center so the line height will be very close to fit in the concave, I could grind 1mm of each 9mm diode backing plate, but the lenses will need to be hand mounted.Confess, Red, how many pairs of 6x do you already have and how many do you still want?
I do not have any of those even to make a test, because I joined LPF too late and I as result I am sentenced to wait for Glutton´s answer till the end of my life... OK, honestly said I received 3 pairs of 3x from Poland now, so not completely empty.
10x would be great for me, too, but only if the size of PCX would be 15+mm.
Because from one NUBM44 let´s say 1mm wide input beam into PCV will become 10mm wide at PCX. Giving advantage of 10x less divergence, of course.
But if I plan to KEdge 4-5 of them, then the resulting min. 5+mm wide input beam will become 14+mm and 12mm wide PCX too narrow for it. At 6x expansion it still would not be narrow for the expanded beam.
Please correct me if I am mistaken.
