Blue S2+ flashlight, for guys, for your bro!

Edit: 01-13-16
Here is the link to buy the new deep carry clip for the S2+: http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/universal-clip-suitable-for-S2-S...

Edit: 10-15-15
Short (18350) tubes are now available on Simon’s Ali store for the blue and red S2+! $2.95 per piece with minimum of 2 but you can always contact Simon to mix and match or ask about a single.

Edit: 08-26-15
Free upgraded shipping option Simon has now made ePacket his standard free shipping.
When ordering through Aliexpress the standard free shipping option is China post which can be slow. Simon is giving us another bonus. He will throw in free ePacket shipping. In my case the charge for a single light adding ePacket shipping is $3.85. Simon says “choose China post air mail in the Aliexpress system, but note “ePacket“under your order along with the “from BLF” note and he will upgrade the shipping for you at no additional charge.
Blue S2+ host is now available! Note: There is a minimum quantity of 2 just like the red host. If you only want 1 you could try sending Simon a message or (for US customers) you will also be able to get the Blue S2+ flashlight and host with no minimum quantity from Mountain Electronics. They don’t have them in stock yet but Richard told me they have both the lights and hosts on the way. That’s one other source where you can be certain you are getting genuine Convoy products.

Edit: 08-25-15
Simon will give a 15% discount to all BLF members on the blue S2+. 8)
From Simon: “Please just tell friends on BLF, if I see message “from BLF” under their orders, I will adjust the amount”. Keep in mind you need to wait for him to make the adjustment. If he’s online it happens pretty fast but you may have to wait several hours for him to adjust the price. It may help to send him a message through the Ali system with your order number to speed things up.

I had to play on the title of Simon’s original post about the red one. :bigsmile:
Yes my friends it’s finally happening. I got the email from Simon tonight that the blue S2+ is ready! They will be available in his Ali store in around 2 days. Please don’t bombard him with special request just yet. I bugged him for months about making this one as I know many others here did. He sent the pictures below. I don’t know how good the lighting is so I can’t say how accurately the color is represented but I’m excited. He said he’s going to send more so I’ll add them as soon as I see them. I ordered the red one for my wife many months ago and once I had it in my hands I knew it was something unique and I wanted one for myself. Knowing Simon and anything he puts the Convoy name on it’s sure to be good. It has the same stainless switch as the red one and should come in the same gift box with the upgraded lanyard. I’ll confirm more details when I have them from him but for now here is your fist peek. Enjoy!

Edit: It’s already on his store. Apparently he meant 2 hours not 2 days!

Note: these are all non-aff links. I’m just doing this to help Simon as he doesn’t have time to post right now.

I’ll leave the original preliminary photos at the bottom but here are some of the photos from his store:

Note:
If you order the stock light you get the standard 3/5 switchable modes, Cool white XML2 U2-1A running 7135*3 at 1050mA but Simon will customize your light cheap (sometimes free Smile ) with the options listed below and it doesn’t add much time to your order. On the site he adds a lot of very specific info about the available mode options, driver options, tint options etc. I’ve added most of it here for convenience.

Most info below is right from the S2+ page:

Optional circuit: 7135*3 / 7135*4 / 7135*6 / 7135*8

Optional LED: XML2 U2-1A / XML2 T6-3B / XML2 T6-4C / XML2 T5-5B / XML2 T4-7A

7135*3 output current 1050mA
7135*4 output current 1400mA
7135*6 output current 2100mA
7135*8 output current 2800mA

XML2 U2-1A 6500-7000K
XML2 T6-3B 5000-5200K
XML2 T6-4C 4300-4500K
XML2 T5-5B 4000-4200K
XML2 T4-7A 3000-3200K

Mode customization options:
(1)5%low—-30%mid—-100%high—-SOS—-strobe
(2)5%low—-30%mid—-100%high
(3)10%low—-100%high
(4)10%low—-100%high—strobe

For example, if you never need SOS and strobe choose the option (2) or (3),
7135*3 *4 *6 *8 all have these four options. Just note your choice under your order.

If you have any questions about order options just hit one of the service center links on the lower left of his page to message or email him. He usually responds within a day and options and shipping usually end up costing less than listed on the page. I live in the US (Michigan) and I’ve always gone with ePacket shipping and it’s often free if I message him first and my orders average 15 days to my door.

His beamshots (shown below) of the different tint/bin options have helped me with my decisions.

The first preliminary shots:

I hope you like it as we’ve been bugging him for this one for a long time. Let’s show Simon our support and buy them all up! I’m ordering mine now! :bigsmile:

Very nice looking light. I just got a Red S2+ and was impressed. I will be following this thread for details and updates.

Thanks for sharing.

That is a sweet looking light.
I’m considering the red S2+ for my dashboard light, but maybe I’ll wait for the blue until they are widely available

Looking great! But I’m really not a fan of the new lanyard. The steel hook will scratch the body and make noise… Is the switch waterproof?

  • Add up the price of the options you want. Example: for 7135*4  + XML2 T6-3B, the cost is $0.18 + $0.53  = $0.71
  • Add Simon’s $0.01 item to your cart and put a quantity of 71 (to equal $0.71).
  • During checkout you will have a chance to add a note to the seller. This is where you tell Simon what options you want. For the example I would write: Please customize  7135*4  + XML2 T6-3B  ( $0.18 + $0.53  = add $0.71 ) 
Quote from Simon’s Blue S2+ page
Quote:
How to pay the extra money:
click following link,for example ,if you want customize led to T6-4C and driver to 7135*6,you need to pay extra $1.93,so after buying S2+,just order following item 193pcs and note your requirement under your order.
 
 
Screenshot of the “Review your Order” step in aliexpress checkout. This shows where you tell Simon what options you want and how your cart should look with the added cost of $0.71 for the options.

I believe I made that very clear in my title.

Blue S2+ flashlight, for men, for your bro! Big Smile

Had to do that since Simon clearly stated that the red one was only to be purchased for girls or “your lover” LOL

Actually I think a more exact opposite would be “boys” but I wanted to make it perfectly clear that this is a VERY manly flashlight. Silly

Edit: I should probably add that this flashlight should probably be kept away from girls and lovers as it is FAR too manly and may scare them.

A little more info below for anyone who hasn’t seen Simon’s store.

He adds a lot of very specific info about the available mode options, driver options, tint options etc.

Most info below is right from the S2+ page:

Optional circuit: 7135*3 / 7135*4 / 7135*6 / 7135*8

Optional LED: XML2 U2-1A / XML2 T6-3B / XML2 T6-4C / XML2 T5-5B / XML2 T4-7A

7135*3 output current 1050mA
7135*4 output current 1400mA
7135*6 output current 2100mA
7135*8 output current 2800mA

XML2 U2-1A 6500-7000K
XML2 T6-3B 5000-5200K
XML2 T6-4C 4300-4500K
XML2 T5-5B 4000-4200K
XML2 T4-7A 3000-3200K

Mode customization options:

(1)5%low—-30%mid—-100%high—-SOS—-strobe

(2)5%low—-30%mid—-100%high

(3)10%low—-100%high

(4)10%low—-100%high—strobe

For example, if you never need SOS and strobe choose the option (2) or (3),

7135*3 *4 *6 *8 all have these four options. Just note your choice under your order.

If you have any questions about order options just hit one of the service center links on the lower left of his page to message or email him. He usually responds within a day and he’s generous (options and shipping usually end up costing less than listed on the page) and he’s easy to work with. I live in the US (Michigan) and I’ve always gone with ePacket shipping and it’s usually free if I talk to him first and my orders average 15 days to my door.

I’ll also add this info to the OP as well as more of the pictures including the ones that compare the beam tints and a link to the light in his store. I don’t work for Simon. I’m just helping him out as he doesn’t have time to post right now.

Why :D? I mean, its available directly from manufacturer, why not giving all the money to those who made this light possible and GB had nothing to do to make it happen either ;)!

IMO Convoy deserve to get all the cash they can from blue S2+ sales.

Oh for crying out loud! Flat Stare Hopefully you all realize marcl is joking. Gearbest probably sells more fake (junk) Convoys than they do real ones. Yes they got caught (several times) and they claim they won’t do it anymore. I’m not trying to tell anyone else what to do but personally I will not buy from them.

I highly recommend you buy this light directly from Simon who is the owner of the Convoy brand (Shenzhen Convoy Electronics Co., Ltd.).

Here is the link to his store http://www.aliexpress.com/store/330416
