Well I’ll ask the obvious question: how much? Those Nichia UV emitters aren’t cheap…

Also, do you know which Nichia emitter is it? They have a few, I think.

I’m guessing the LED is the NCSU276A U365

The price of the Nichia 365nm have just come way down in price . Simon can get a better price on them bulk. That is why we will see an affordable Convoy with a Nichia UV inside.

Simon informed me on 2015-10-12 that he was making the two new products. I noticed right after that the Convoy BD04 UV went out of stock.

Simon informed me on 2015-10-13 that the manufacturer is producing UV flashlights. With a rough price estimate.
BD04 365UV flashlight $29.26
S2+ 365UV flashlight $22.11

I’ll let you know if I hear any more news from Simon. I presently have no more information to give to any of you.

S2+ UV using nichia LED is only $22.11? If so, that’s a great deal. I agree that it should be 18350 since the current draw is so low to begin with.

I’m glad Simon did the right thing when the Nichia prices went down. It’s clear that other businesses don’t have his ethics.

More than 10 available and one sold. That one poor bastard doesn’t know that LCK-LED went in dry. I hate price gougers. Flat Stare

I got a message from Simon. I had asked if he would sell ZWB2 filters at his store because there was a interest in them. He replied and said that he would add them to his store in 2 days. He didn’t give me a price, but knowing Simon, it will be an affordable price. Not that $16.88 that we saw on Aliexpress.

Sorry for a noob question, but I don’t know much about UV. Will these make scorpions fluoresce or do you need a special type of VU light for that?

Yes, he does. You can make an aliexpress order, submit it but not pay. Then ask him to send you a paypal payment request.

Bugsy, it isn’t released yet. It will be soon. He told me on 2015-10-12 they were being made. It usually takes a month to do, so I’m guessing 2 more weeks.

Good things come to those that wait, but the wait is hard. J)

That S2+ 365UV flashlight at $22.11 sounds good to me.

No need for a group buy. Simon will have a very affordable price. UV flashlights are becoming all the rage lately. After most of us missed out on the multi UV emitter group buy from from Tinywind, we might have another multi UV emitter light in the future. But don’t let that stop you from buying one of these two kick-ass lights from Simon. The Convoy BD04 will give you flood and throw and has built in USB charging and the Convoy S2+ will have the same Nichia emitter as the Convoy BD04 but in the Convoy S2+ that we love.

With our support (buying his products), Simon will have the resources to keep bringing us more great quality Convoy flashlights in the future. Simon listens and takes care of us, we need to take care of him. He just made the blue and green S2+ along with 18350 tubes for us. I wish other manufacturers listened to us like Simon does.

I can’t wait until his XHP light is made. He told me in August that he is going to make one in the future. I expect it will be a great light like all of the Convoy products that he makes.
