Obviously you've already decided button cells will work, so just go try it already. Hell, if Kipkay does it it must be true!
Once again, those little button cells can't provide the current you need or the capacity you need to power a high powered laser for any period of time. You WILL be taking it apart and putting new batteries in a lot.and i highly doubt i will be ripping it apart every 30 seconds and by utilizing the rare earth magnets that come in sleds i will simply place one in between each battery it will be easy changing them.
did you not read....or did you not read. i said i have lithiums already. but im using a way smaller host now so these will fit . that is why i bought them. and i use my laser at most 5 minutes a day of run timeOnce again, those little button cells can't provide the current you need or the capacity you need to power a high powered laser for any period of time.

What, exactly, would be the point of using button cells? If you're going to run a bunch of stacks in parallel you're going to end up with a pile of the things bigger than a lithium battery. The idea is just straight up dumb...
I don't even know how to respond to the gibberish at the end of that last sentence. I don't see how putting magnets between batteries will make them easier to change but I do know that will make them take up a lot more space. The small size of button cells is the only reason they should even be considered, stacking them with a bunch of magnets just takes away the only advantage of button cells.
yeah i got that feeling from the start, but you are always helpful toast. its almost as if tj and coherent are seemingly a little stuck up. when this forum isn't about ripping on a new guy its about sharing information and helping other. that's what the vets need to remember.A lot of vets here really got bad attitudes. You got their opinion, now go and do what you want to.
Also, Using the diode out of a sled (LPC) isn't a "Hack", Kipkay.
