I’m new to flashlights so please forgive me if my inquiry seems obvious. I have been researching and lurking around here for the last couple of weeks, but didn’t know a world of flashlights like this existed before then. There are some really wonderful and helpful posters on here so thank you in advance to the forum members.
I’m getting set to purchase my first light (of many i’m sure) and have decided on the Convoy S2+ with the T4 7A tint. My intent is to get if from Simon via Aliexpress. I want a really warm tint for indoor use. I’m a terrible sleeper and often get up in the middle of the night to read or poke around and don’t want to wake the wife and kids. I was set on the 7135*4 driver to max out run-times and achieve a lower, low setting, but recently read that the new biscotti driver is available for the Convoy S2+. So my question is this:
Does it make sense to get a 7135*6 or 7135*8 driver given biscotti can go down to .1% (moonlight) thus allowing me the same benefit as I originally intended, but with more available output if needed? Being new, I’m having a hard time conceptualizing how low these lights can go – or for that matter how bright.
Also, I read the thread on a desert tan model coming out. Any new word on that? I would be really, really excited to get that color. Finally, I’m open to any other advice regarding the best performing protected battery (I have 4 young kids who are very curious) or chargers, etc., etc., etc.
Thanks in advance!
