I have become enamored with the Convoy S2+, and I own 3 or 4. I just lost my favorite one this week, and I think I want to do my first build to replace it. Here's my wish list on mtnelectronics.com:
I'm replacing an EDC light that was pretty much permanently in short-tube mode with a 16340. I want to try a Nichia LED because I like the warmer tint XM-L2 a LOT, and I want to see high CRI just for fun. I'm not concerned with lots of lumens. The S2+ stock builds I own with XM-L2 (U2 1A and T6 3B) and 7135*6 are way brighter than I need. I want to play around with long battery life, so I'm thinking a 7135*4 qlite. And guppydrv just because I'm curious.
As I said, this is my first build. So I would REALLY like to know if there are any serious flaws with my chosen components, or if they won't work together. Also, I'm open to suggestions for improvements.
Plus, I'm pretty sure all I need to do is a little soldering, centering/gluing the MCPCB, and the rest will just screw together. I'm comfortable with that, but if I'm missing any major steps, please enlighten me.
Thanks in advance!
ETA: First Post Flub! Heh. "Save" on this board is post, not like "save draft" that I'm accustomed to. The first 20+ people who saw this got a really unfinished version. My bad.
