Hi all,
Today I am reviewing an awesome laser made by Bill (aka badboybilly). This laser was made to my specifications, using a NUBM47 and a 4.5 SXD driver. It takes two 18350’s. The shipping was quite expensive from Australia, but it is very much worth it for this beautiful piece of art! I also put a Sanwu G7.
I decided to name it Unleashing, which also happen to mean the god of light in Nyawaygi (I think)
Pictures are 4K, click on them!



The laser, an extension tube and an adapter for Sanwu BE!

The top part contact:

Feels like I am holding a light saber
Final comments:
Overall, I feel that aesthetically, this is one of the top builds I have ever see. It sturdy and heavy when holding it. It is honestly flawless and intimidatingly pretty. If I would add something it would be maybe a venting hole, but made I wouldn’t dare because it just looks so damn pretty.
I hope you all enjoyed this short review, and thanks Bill for this awesome laser!
PS: I am doing a review for a Sanwu Guardian 1W 520nm once I get it. Do y’all care for video reviews?

That is diffidently a good looking laser. Great looking beam shots also. Hat tip to Billy for such great work. Enjoy your 7 watts of blue. :drool:

Those small batteries will discharge rather quickly powering this diode. Along with 6+ watts of optical power, it produces quite a lot of waste heat too. I would use the extension and get at least some 18650 batteries. Glad you like it. That is really all that matters.

Looks amazing! I love it with the lit button and the extension tube on it. It really makes it really look like a light saber.

Without the extension it looks a little funny (haha terrible joke).

I'm always down for some video reviews :D

Hi buddy!
Thank you very much for the nice words, great review, and nice pics, this laser was an exact copy of the 5w boost stubby I sold previously except a much thinner version, and of course an extension adapter made to your liking, I’m so happy to here how pleased you are with it, Thank you for your patients and enjoy buddy,

Need anything just email me!

I do like this one much better than the other fixed focus output laser you made, it looks pointy, like a pointer should :)

Very lovely indeed.
I do concur on 18650 being a better draw and capacity battery, you could put them side by side for a e-cig style grip if you dont like long things *cough*.

Does the SXD have capped at 4.5a? I'm aware that you can overshoot the V2's to get about 8W without too much issue.
