Yes, the protected Thrunite works well with the E2L.

Dropped a couple of the new AA lights in the shopping cart at Jaxman, added the small C8 design and some cells. The site wants to ship separately, I’ve asked if he can package it all together and ship FedEx so I get it quicker. Waiting on a reply. I don’t really need the cells, might just add an Z1 and run with it. Smile

Yes, the heat build-up is different in the E2L: the outside gets hot quicker because there is not a chunk of copper in there that soaks the first heat. But the heat spreading over the shell is faster than in an S2+, that compensates it a bit.

One of my E2L’s has 219C’s (sm405 R9050) and a BLF X5/X6 driver and draws 10A on highest setting. It can be run at that for half a minute with no problem, it just gets so hot after that that you will switch it to a lower setting. And that 2000lm for half a minute is a nice addition to all the lower modes that can be used continuously.

So if used like that, the heat transfer is fine: even at 10 amps I see no problem for the leds in the period before the shell gets so hot that you will automatically switch to a lower mode. Your time at turbo may be a little bit shorter than with a S2+ with copper spacer, what you get back is a flashlight that is a bit shorter and more lightweight.

Good to know. Thanks Tjohn.
Richard needs to correct the brand name as it currently displayed “Convoy”.

Does the convoy deep carry clip fit on the Jaxman tailcap?

Gunga, which light from Convoy comes with this deep carry clip you’re asking about? I only have a few Convoy tube lights, not sure if I have that specific clip, but will check and see. Everyone’s sleeping at the moment but that should change soon and I’ll go dig stuff out and see if it fits.
Will be back shortly…

Hey Gunga? The Convoy S2+ tailcap interchanges with the E2L tailcap and both lights work fine. The groove that exists between the tail cap and start of knurling is the same width but the grooves in the E2L tail cap are slightly narrower. So if there is a clip that attaches to the tail cap, I doubt it would cross over due to the narrower margin.

I have a blue S2+ but have no clue where the clip for it is. Thought I had more Convoy tube lights but the only other one I can locate is chopped with a short tube and TIR lens, no clip.

Probably have a box of clips somewhere…

Ah. Thanks. I have a Jaxman UV light and the clip doesn’t fit On the tailcap. You just answered my question, I won’t fit the groove on the e2l tailcap. Thanks!

The Jaxman UV light has even slimmer grooves than the E2L. If your clip is close, it might just fit the E2L. Could probably open the groove width slightly to make it fit, fairly easy on a lathe but a bit more work without one, still doable though. Without a lathe you can disassemble the tail cap, use a washer to cover the tail end and a piece of all thread or a bolt to run through the tail cap and a nut on the inside to secure it. Mount the all thread/bolt in a drill and spin it up, cut the groove wider with a rotary tool or a hack saw blade, perhaps a small file. Wink

That continues to make me laugh!

That switch, the mini Omten, is handling 23Amps in my DBC-05 Triple XHP-50.2.

(That’s 23Amps at over 7V. Wink )

hi,due to busy working, days off-line to BLF.
23A….is too terrible….

I have confirmed with a switch technical from the fatory of the switch(not Omten), the man told me,the switch can not bear 3A more.
The 1288 type switch titled as 250V 1A. Though we use this switch under 4.2V, while I think 20A 4.2V is also out of my imagination..

I have get a better provider than Omten. But it still make me stop on a 3A+ current controlling with this little switch.

How you think about dear all friends?

I can totally understand that you do not want to go too far over the factory specifications.
But here at BLF we are a bit funny, we do read the specifications but then we test what it can really handle, and we found that the little Omten 1288 is quite happy at more than 15A, I found that it just keeps working at 16A for hours without failing.

But personally, I think that for the factory built E2L the most sensible current is 3A, the light gets hot enough already, and the light output is great. Anyone who wants more current can buy a host and components and build their own hotrod. Or wait for a BLF initiative for a custom triple flashlight.

18350 and 18500 tubes are available, though I find it unfair that Jaxman refuses to sold it alone.
You have to buy the E2L flashlight at the same time or they won’t sell it yo you…
Bad move IMHO Jaxman

My Jaxman M2 is pulling 4.75A at the tail, 2S 14500 for 8.4V and 3014 lumens from the XHP-50.2. Spring is wire bypassed but the switch is the stock one.

Totally agree! I have two E2L hosts and I need to buy a light to buy tube? I saw gearbest selling stock E2L-s. I hope they will sell the tubes also.

My Jaxman M2 with a XHP50.2 can pull up to 5.88A at the tail completely standard tail switch no by pass, I normally turn the LD-3 driver down to 4A.

Khas, I used a 7135 chipped driver to control the output. Wink

I think the LD-3 driver is great in a build like the Jaxman M2 very easy to adjust the current and the UI is great. Besides I can’t build my own drivers soldering wires is right around my skill-set Smile

Agreed.
And i think the Vf of those XP-G2s @ 1 Amperes each is not too low either and probably quite efficient too at that low current.

Yeah, i’m looking forward to that, just hoping they will re-stock the light grey hosts..

I just bought two of these from mtnelectronics.com. They seem like an interesting light. Seems much better than my modified SK98 XM-L2 U41C Qlight 3.04 amp lights. More effecient light output and runtime. The quality looks pretty good too. Hopefully this will not disappoint.
