Hey all! I found this build off youtube, DIY: How to Build a 1W Blue Laser! - YouTube

but looked at the comments and he said I could use
this driver: Survival Laser Driver

and the M140 with a G-2 lens from https://sites.google.com/site/dtrlpf/home/diodes/445-m140-didoes

instead to make it stronger. My question is, will these two work together and what batteries should I get / best place to get them? :)

Hehe, that was posted off my comment/question. But in theory, that should work. Just make sure you're using 2 3.7v batteries, as one would not suffice it with enough power. A proper heat sink is also recommended

FYI holstering 2 cr123a batteries is a bit tough(without a host), find a 18650 battery holder and get rid of the spring, on flee bay they sell ones with leads.
