G'day,

Finally accomplished this build!

I first bought this kit of Jayrob the 10440 SS as he calls it a while ago.

I had the kit 90% assembled when i was threading the pill into the host and i twisted the leads up and twisted the pins off the diode :(
There is bugger all room in this host, even for a flex drive or microboost.

Well i finally had another crack at it yesterday and had great success!


Specs:

Osram 450nm diode
3.8mm Aluminium module
Custom machine heatsink from Jayrob
Microboost driver set @ 345mA
10440 Li-Ion Battery.
Uncoated acrylic lens.
Custom "Bullet" style focus adapter from Flaminpyro
Removed the pocket clip.
3 GITD O-rings on the body.



Now for power, i was expecting around the 200 mark looking at the power graphs available for this diode




Was pleasantly surprised it was hanging around 235mW with Uncoated Acrylic:



And ~200mW with a 3 Element Glass:



Pretty happy with this bad boy, feels pretty nice in the hand and full of single mode goodness :D

Beamshots!




Thanks for looking!

Fiddy.

That is a nice laser you have there. The diode is surely better than the average. That is a keeper. :beer:

Great Laser Mitch.:wave:


Why not use a G lens.? Just wondering Since it give the Thinest and tightest beam for single mode diodes.

Bet you it will hit 300mW+.:D

Really nice combination!! This is one of my favorite hosts, and a very special diode!
Although, I was thinking of putting a 12X in there, and the PL450B save for a slightly bigger host to run it on 1.4W :)
