Up for sale I have Laser hosts complete with heat sinks and set screws for axis modules to fit 14500 or 18650 cells. Tail end of heat sink can be machined to fit 15,16,17mm contact boards or drivers. Custom heat sinks can also be supplied for specific hosts by request. 14500 Host - $35.00+Postage. 18650 Host - $40.00+Postage. Feel free to contact me for quotes on other hosts or custom work. Cheers gents. Paul.
Yes definitely, there have actually been a few cases where hikers have been rescued after been spotted and located from the use of lasers.
I have also heard that firefighters and emergency service rescuers are using them to spot areas of light smoke or gas that would otherwise not be seen with the naked eye.
Completely agree with you though, they must be handled with care no doubt.
They’re not toys, and shouldn’t be treated in such a way.
Hello, I’m back again, I really can not resist that 14500 host, is there any way the head could be shortened about 1cm or so? I may end up taking it but I’d like to see it with a slightly shorter OAL and shorter head specifically. Whats the minimum length to be able to fit an axisz module?
It actually looks bigger in the pics than it is in reality.
The host measurements are 95mm(L) x 20.5mm(W), almost identical to a C3.
Just remember, the longer the head of the host is determines the length of the heat sink.
The bigger the heat sink the less chance your diode will overheat, which equals longer run times and longer life for your diode.
I really wouldn’t recommend anything smaller to be honest.
Thanks for the answer, I know the heatsinking issues with small hosts well, still tho, it is possible? Whats the minimum length to fit the axis module? Whats the most the head can be shortened and still be able to assemble / fit the module in it?
