I've purchased some of the cheap $13 18650 lasers off ebay. Pretty nice! But a dropin would sure be cool. Green laser in my MD2? Hell yeah!

I dont buy that extreme high level of want thing
(if that means in numbers, not in high want of a single member ...)
;)
if it were so, there were offers ...

lets look at the cons of the idea:
1st and foremost: DANGER ... how often my lights still happen to be taken by someone blinding themselves, just to "test that light" :rolleyes:
good that are not lasers ...
2nd size: no need for a laser to be that big (a P60 host is simply too big for that. Laser has to be thin and sleek)


if someone wants such a thing and there is no offers, why not mod for oneself?
getting a laser module for the battery choice of the host is not that difficult,
nor is to drill a hole though a hump of aluminium and file the outside round to fit into
:thinking:
A nice project

PS: pro(s) of the idea --> really much metal to get away the heat from the module ...

I think for CPF member the want level is very high because almost everyone has some P60/D26 compatible host and lasers are just cool (and dangerous).

Artorias, I have not tried that but I might give it a shot. I would sure seem by looking at that laser that it would be removable pill that could conceivable fit into one of my Surefires or a Solarforce host. I figure if something wen haywire and my card was comprimised it would be my banks responsibility to pick up the tab on that. I just might take a shot at it. If anyone reads this and has any experience, i too would like to know how how this thing has worked out for them.
Super interested in this as well, considering the "drill a hole though a hump of aluminium and file" route but not quite that desperate yet.

Edit: Someone mentioned this:
https://www.fasttech.com/products/0/...en-light-laser Is this Fasttech place any good? they wont accept PayPal and I'm weary about giving them my cc info :S

If it was me, I'd drop it into a different host and take the glass out but screw the bezel back on. Straight shot through the air at that point [emoji1489]

Yeah I'd imagine you'd want to remove the lens.
Fast tech is great I've had no problems.
The small cheap laser modules I have found to install in a hunk of aluminum to keep things cheap are all 3V or 5V. This obviously presents a problem. Of course with an appropriate spacer one could be used in a standard two cell host.

this has soooo much potential. I would be down for one myself. One could even make run off one battery with the Laser drop in having an extension going into the battery tube.

A place in need of light.
Wow no one ever came across that tactical 1+ Watt Blue laser in the solar force host many years ago? I'd never find it now (talking 5 plus years) but around the same time Wicked laser made the artic someone set up a business selling Solar force flashlights with a 1+ confirmed rated blue diode to mount on guns. It was everything your looking for a P60 head in a P60 host running on 1x 18650 cell. It didn't look very fancy IE just a drop in on a standard host. I'm sure those "lights" are out there somewhere and the guy must still be around even if his business is bust.

Thank you for the tip, I will keep an eye out for that...it sounds exactly like what I’m after!
