Here’s another semi-update.
The Desert Tan S2+ is in production now. I can’t give an exact date but we’re looking at perhaps weeks, not months.
Another happy note (for me at least) is that it will have a black metal switch. Cool

Excellent news. Thanks for your and Simon’s hard work.

Is color sample #2 (the dark one) the one that’s going into production? Or are there colors that we haven’t seen?

Oh gosh, I’m sorry…did I forget to post?

The first batch of 2000 was so beautiful that I bought them all and decided to keep them all for myself. I made a 10 foot long sled of desert tan anodized aluminium with two reclining leather seats for my kids to sit in and I use all 2000 of the desert tan S2+ as wheels. We sit and wait for someone to post in this thread asking where they are and then we all laugh maniacally while my team of sled dogs pulls them around the yard while we look at these BLF posts on the theater sized screen in my back yard…

Wait…what? Sorry, no news yet. Silly

You’re a heartless man J-dub, a heartless man.

Can you at least post pictures of your dog sled? Cool

Ah yes…this is BLF…pics or it didn’t happen right?

I think something is wrong with my camera. The scale seems a little off but as you can see I am clearly telling the truth here…

Something about the ummmmm… ‘body’ of your sled looks extremely familiar to me. Something from a past life perhaps? Silly

Hmm…since you said “body” I’m assuming you’re referring to the laptop box reminding you of your IT life and not the two desert tan color samples I was supposed to send you a month or so ago? Facepalm

Sorry buddy. I actually have them with me today. Pulling them out last night reminded me that I should not still have them. Blushing
I’ll see if I can find a padded envelope and get that done. I hope that either the job hunt is going well or the fishing is good. The latter is probably more important in the grand scheme. Wink

Meh… Samples don’t really matter now if they are already in production… I can wait until Simon gets them posted up in the store to purchase. It’s too late for any more comparison photos to change anything.

Every few days, I’m checking the new arrivals at the Convoy store to see if they are available yet… LOL

The listing should be going live very soon. These pictures were waiting for me when I woke this morning. Cool I’ll add them to the OP later.

^^^ How on earth can you call this light “budget”. I mean, that’s just ridiculous… Something this gorgeous and sophisticated cannot be budget… Thumbs Up

I need yet another S2+ like I need eleven fingers, but I’ll be ordering one of these as soon as they go live anyway.

It should show up in the Convoy AliExpress new arrivals first.

My question is this: Is it going to have the new Red driver boards with the Biscotti firmware programmed with the right fuses so the timing is correct?

As far as I know, this will have the rev.2 driver with all the fixes in place. I’m waiting for Simon to confirm all the little details before I update the OP. At that time I’ll post all the info. I can tell you that the last light I got from Simon did have the updated firmware and corrected fuse settings. That was a BD06 running Biscotti that I received about 2 weeks ago.
