Well once again inspired by our own mag-lite pro jayrob I tossed around the idea about building a 445nm 9mm "stubby".
Welp here is one handful of insanity:evil: or a perfect example of shear overkill:bowdown:
Studying some builds @CPF and other sites I found some techniques and ideas for the "EH" event horizon build, one, was I wanted to press mount the threads (makes for a cleaner look IMHO) then, I wanted an extended heatsink with the 45 degree angle cut I have been known for. Yea man, the thing weighs a couple pounds:crackup:
Here is a pic of the pressed threads. I used good ol JB weld to hold it into place, not that it needed it.
I found a way to be able to use 2 different battery sizes either 1 26650 or 1 32650 by having a reamed groove in the driver sink, or pill, I can lower or raise the sink to match the battery:shhh: The set screws(M3x.5) tapped in the threads on the head of the host are sunk so the threads can pass each other.
I'm using a SXB super X-Boost V2 sourced from our head driver designer laseerer:bowdown: it's set @2.445A. I binned the diode and found the sweet spot to be around 2.5A:drool:.
Here are all the bits before assembly:
I loved the assembly of this unit it's a very hardy build, very heavy solid and has tons of metal in there.
Ok, here are the numbers. 2.44@ sh*t..... topped out my meter in 12 seconds so who knows. I used the stock 9mm lens. I'm using the McClicky switch which is struggling at the 5.65A current draw at the tailcap:gun:. The label in the chart was from the 2.1A SBX super V1 I had in there previous. It was a fixed resistor (no pot) for testing. I forgot to change the header before I ran the LPM for the V2 which is reflected in the graph:undecided:
Sorry I did post this before I was done, but I hope you enjoyed this step of craziness that I have taken and as usual if you have any questions just ask.
Thank you in advanced and get out there and build.:thanks:
