Yes, the blue version is finally here. Not sure about that link in your post though. It wouldn’t translate properly for me and I didn’t see the light. This light just came out and I don’t think it’s anywhere but on Simon’s store which is this link. http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Convoy-S2-blue-Cree-XML2-U2-1A-EDC-LED-Flashlight-torch-lantern-self-defense-camping-light/330416_32445361280.html
I certainly wouldn’t consider buying anywhere else.

I’m not sure, I just saw a button that said ‘click here for boobs’. I pressed that one.

First mistake.

It only attempts to download something if I hit the blue button, which I think is like an Asian Tapatalk?

That’s awesome. I keep clicking on those too but I seem to be getting viruses all the time. Never seems to work out…

Do you say you keep getting viruses, you do mean your computer right? :bigsmile:

No, simply following the posted link started what seemed to be an app download. Fortunately, I was able to kill the download manager before it finished, before any install was attempted. In any case, the link went somewhere which seems totally unrelated to the blue S2+, and tried to install something without permission. I wonder if WWEFANS has a virus which caused the wrong link to be posted.

Marc – You need to clarify explain the comment about Banggood and the BLF X6 host. That comment insinuates that Banggood was selling counterfeit BLF X6 hosts which is not the case. The only counterfeit was that OTHER vendors except GearBest were advertising BLF X6 SE lights and sending stock EE units.

As for Convoy…buy from Simon. Even if it comes to be a dollar or two more – so what. You will know what you are getting.

Yes. Banggood ended up selling the BLF X6 hosts which was utter crap and from memory also from a questionable source. Real or fake they were not supplying what they should have been, which is the same thing when it comes to substandard products.

To make it worse, now we have two people claiming to be Eagleeye!

I also don’t recall saying BG have been selling fake X6s.

Marc

It was Tmart that had the fake BLF X6 SE.

I know BG was selling real ones my original comment was not about fakes, it was more about not getting what you paid for or expected. I think all dealers have been guilty of that at one time or another. Including BG with the X6 host.

Weird. The first time I clicked the link it took me to a splash page that looked a lot like the tapatalk “install me” page (everything in chinese though)

Now it takes me here: (screenshot)

I'm sorry. My PC is fine. That links to a Chinese forum,which usually requires to install an APP when you are on phone.

You can choose not to, but you will have little access to the threads. Such as no pic or smaller pic, or you can only read the 1st page of all the posts.

 

Edit: It is a branch of "baidu.com", the biggest search enegine in China.

I received my original S2+ yesterday, if anyones interested, here are some comparison pictures, original is on right and on top:

 

Powder coated(?) switch on fake, steel switch on original

 

Lanyard loop holes are more o shaped on original

 

Centering ring visible on fake one, appears to be centered on original one

 

Side panels where the branding is located have more squared sides on original one, also, text is crisper and smaller on genuine one

 

Guts

 

Fake one comes in cold blue tint, genuine one comes in warm white.

Clone consumes 0.08-0.1A on low, 0.55-0.6A on medium and 1.02-1.2A on high, genuine one 0.11/0.83-0.89/2.18-2.23 respecitvely. Not sure why my DMM showed this data fluctuating though!

 Oh and switch is more responsive on original one, it switches modes without almost any delay whatsoever, while on clone it takes visible delay when the light shuts off before next mode is being turned on.

Thats about it regarding this light!

Nice post. Thanks for the comparison shots and describing the differences. I know that wrong is wrong but cloning a light that is so budget friendly already really ticks me off. Simon isn’t making millions selling Convoy lights (though he deserves to IMO) so it seems extra wrong to steal from him. Thanks.

Thanks for sharing, that’s some precious information! I’ve had a look to the customer uploaded photos from GB and BG and they both seem the original one.

Hi,
is there any code still valid around?
I had one for GB (12,99 usd) and on for BG (from m4dm4x) but they are expired… just wondering where is the cheapest place to buy, cause on the official shop on aliexpress it’s not so cheap (19,27 USD for the 8*7135 and 4C tint).

Gearbest just had another report of fake red S2+ being sold again so my advice would be to look elsewhere at any price. I’m not sure what Banggood is offering. Simon’s Aliexpress store is always your safest bet with the most customization options, the fastest shipping and he still offers a 15% discount to BLF members.

Now you told me, I have checked more carefully all the customer pictures from GB website… and among all the original ones I’ve spotted a fake one:

So I guess they are selling mostly genuine convoys but maybe they received a fake stock and a fake flashlight is sent every now and then.

Thank you, I didn’t know the 15% discount was still valid! (I found about it in a 1 year old post)

Happy to help steer you toward genuine Convoy goodness. Smile
That is indeed one of the fakes and the pictures of the light you received look exactly like the fake red S2+ batch that Gearbest was selling before. Aside from the internals the most obvious difference is the silver painted button on the fake vs. the brushed stainless switch on the real deal. Gearbest was supposed to have gotten rid of the entire batch of fakes and said they would not sell them anymore. I’m glad they didn’t give you any grief about replacing it while at the same time disgusted at hearing that they did it again. I truly hope that against all odds this is just a “mistake” but I really have a hard time believing it.

I do realize that but the first pictures that you posted in your thread are of the light that you just recently received correct? The light that was ordered in December?

Excellent post Veer. Smile You already did the comparison. I was waiting for a new real convoy to post pics. I agree to all the observations you made!

PS: Maybe users above were confusing with this thread http://budgetlightforum.com/node/44049 Wink
