Thread: Host for laser pointer module?

    Default Host for laser pointer module?

    What's a good option for dive waterproof cheap compact light to eviscerate and use as a host for a laser pointer?

    It's ok if it require some mild modding to become fully waterproof, but I don't have access to more advanced tools such a lathe or welding equipment.

    I suppose it would be good if it could fit a 16850, an other LiIo battery type or three AAA to get sufficient voltage.

    I mean something like for example TrustFire TR-801 ($12 at DX), it also has flat surfaces on the body that is good for mounting on a aluminum profile.

    If the tail cap is sealed shut, the o rings refreshed and front glass replaced, it seems to me it could be made dive-proof, right?

    Any suggestions for other hosts that could be more suitable?

    The cheap plastic ones at DX would be OK if your pointer doesn't generate much heat, pretty sure you can fit an 18650 in there too if you tried.
    I reckon you're better off with one already designed for diving, you never know where there may be other points to leak. I have sku: 112889 and it's been fine down to 30m a couple of times
