[NLD] Convoy S2+ Red + Nichia 219C 4000K

Ever since I saw goshdogit’s weathered S2+ I wanted one for my self. And I’ve been wanting to build a nightstand light for some time now. With an illuminated tailcap. So here’s the parts I ordered:

Host: Convoy S2+ Red
Driver: LD-A4 3Amp
Emitter: Nichia 219C 4000k CRI92-)
Lens: 60degree TIR
ILC-0 Illuminated Tailcap Switch

The light is used indoors, at night. so the 60* TIR makes sure it has no spotlight, only a nice wide beam.
The host got some sanding with P180 sandpaper to give it the weathered look.
After the first assembly i discovered the “black gasket in the switch issue”. But with the help of djozz I swapped out the black gasket in the metal switch.

The new gaskets arrived, and now the build is 100% complete Cool

Nice build, and it looks like you managed to get the metal switch light up bright enough with the ILC-0!
(and sorry, you should not had to wait so long for the gaskets)

“I used to think that top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that thirty years of good science could address these problems. I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy, and to deal with these we need a cultural and spiritual transformation. And we scientists don’t know how to do that.”   (Gus Speth)

No worries, I’ll gladly wait for free stuff that fixes my problem Big SmileBeer

Also, thoose tailcap pics are a little over-exposed, to show the red light.
IRL it’s dimmer. Just the right amount to find it in the dark, but not so bright it lights up the room Thumbs Up
