Great design! Thanks! I have been trying to figure out a way to make a laser pointer for my cats that I could recharge instead of having to buy batteries all the time. So, with a little bit of modifications, I was able to outfit it with a laser pointer laser. My cats thank you! (No, I didn't make it into a remix, but I might.)

Glad to hear the cats enjoy the design! Can you post a make here even though it's slightly modified?

Here is the make... I had to cut the body in half so as to print right on my printer and also so I could get my button switch to work. (I had to use items I already had, so...) I also had to make a part to fit the laser pointer into. I didn't need the part for heat sink as it does not get hot.

I used this laser for it: https://www.ebay.com/itm/5pcs-650nm-6mm-5V-5mW-Red-Laser-Dot-Diode-Module-US/192413552389?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

The button used is from my Freenove Ultimate Starter Kit for my Raspberry Pi that my brother got me for Christmas. You can google them and go to their website and see the kit so you can see what the button looks like. I'm sure that the button can be purchased other places.

Amazing! Perfect! i was looking for something like this.

Thanks for the comment, and I'm glad you like it. Hopefully you can get this made and post the first make?!?! :)

So awesome!!!!!!
I just got two laptop batteries out of the recycle bin at Lowes...will print these asap :)

Very cool!!!! Now I can make a flashlight for my dad with an enclosed battery, so he won't keep loosing batteries (I have given him over a dozen of those SK68 flashlights that he keeps losing)

You can get different current level driver boards for lights, some of which will automatically step down from high mode to prevent overheating the emitter

Can I post this over at budgetlightforum.com?

I'm glad that you like it. I would be willing to change the design to outfit a better driver. And yes, thank you for asking, your welcome to post this where ever you think it'll thrive. Once again, this is a V1 design for me so I am still testing it's durability and longevity. But I think this is a good start, thanks for the comment.

No you wouldn't need to re-design it, the design already has the "driver" already built in
Depending on the number of 7135's on the board, results in the current output
Nanjg 105c
Single mode
16mm star w/ emitter
The reason I am saying this is those at BLF are well verse in building lights and we know what components go in..your design is a very good design

so helpful! thank you again!!

for the one person that downloaded this first, I changed the button. The one with the rectangle base will not work!!!! hope you see this
