Thanks for the info Halo.
How about just 1×7135, 4C and 5%low, 30%med and 100% high? Would you know approx how many lumens will these settings provide? Might be near enough to what I want.

Never tried one with 1 × 7135 myself. I read in your other thread that you have a 3 × 7135 version. The low for 1 × 7135 should just be around 1/3 of the low on your 3 × 7135 version.

You can order one of these from RMM with Guppydrv flashed on it. Then select mode 17.

Yes, my grey S2 has 3×7135 chips with a 10%low, 40%med and 100@high settings. If I follow you correctly, the 5%low on 1×7135 would be 1/6(?) of the low in my grey s2? If so, then that’s quality light with very looooong runtime. And I would definitely place my order. Party

BTW, sent Simon a PM in his AE store regarding this query.

Thanks for the suggestion.
Can I order just a 1×7135 chip version? My goal is to have an 18650-based EDC that will have a low low mode and very long runtime.

I’m not sure if Simon will do that, but you could ask.

You could also order a driver from RMM with whatever specs you want. For example, his FET+7135 driver provides the low low and long runtime, but it also gives the benefits of really high high modes. Or you could ask him for a 1×7135 with STAR and custom levels. Or whatever.

Thank you for the advise.

@all
Just got a reply from Simon. He can do a 1×7135, 4C version for me with 5%low-30%med-100%high modes. That will give me around 4-5lumens on low. Not the low low that I want but it will already be useful to me. I will just use my quark when I need moonlight mode.

You can also reflash the driver, to tweak it to your heart’s content. Smile

Simon has both the blue and red short tubes available in his store now for $2.95 each Minimum quantity listed as two but yo ucan message him and mix and match and usually work out whatever you want. Simon is really easy going about that stuff. I’ll add this to the OP as well. Enjoy!

He will have no problem mixing and matching them for you. He’s still working out details with the factory but deep carry clips are in the works for these too. We’re in discussion about an “ultimate edition” for the S2+ with both short and standard tubes and a deep carry clip in all three of the new colors. Oops… Did I say three? 0:) More info tomorrow. Way past bedtime for me.

Oh, deep carry clips. :bigsmile:
Did Simon give any indication on the clip attachment method?

You keep having all the fun revealing Simon’s new products. I’ll have to ask Simon if I can reveal what’s being made at the factory right now. Silly

All I got to say is Simon is on a roll and I hope that he doesn’t slow down.

I take it the blue has sold well if Simon is adding another now.

Yeah I’m guessing he’s doing just fine with sales of the blue one. I have two myself. Just wait until the new deep carry pocket clip comes out! We were going over the design last night. I’d been trying to explain how\where I though it should attach when I came across a post from tristanxoxo in the S2 pocket clip thread showing that the Roche F6 pocket clip fit very well on the S2. Tip of the hat there good sir. Simon of course had one on hand so we went back and forth a bit. Attachment will be just like the F6 clip shown below but doing a backbend and flipping back around similar to the clips on the BLF A6 but better. Notice what else it also fits on???

Yeah I know the C8 is a little big for pocket carry but it still looks cool!

No problem! Actually another member here gave me the tip…just don’t remember who.

I look forward to seeing what you guys come up with. So the clip will be a deep carry? It would be great if there was a relief cut for the clip in new versions of the Convoys. Also, if these were sold separately, I’m sure Simon would sell quite a few.

Any ideas when the clip should be available? I’m about to order a red one with 18350 tube, and I don’t know if I should wait for the clip or not.
Since you are throwing ideas for Simon, I think he should make pill for triple conversion. And purple one would be awesome!

I LOVE that idea. If Simon made a pill for S2, S2+, S8 etc, it would certainly be a huge hit here on BLF, especially now that everyone wants triples.

Really solid. It’s a really tight fit and the metal is really stiff. It wasn’t easy getting it on without scratching the anodizaion.

The tubes are different or you can screw them both way? I was expecting dark military olive color but pinewood/mint green look great and fresh.
Great work. Now we only need moonlight mode Smile
