I saw Neal blabbing about it on FB. I tried to get SOME info out of him… nothing.
I went to aliexpress, sent a question about this elusive light to someone selling S2’s , turns out it was Simon…
5 minutes later he had my paypal ! 13 days later, here it is !
It is quite nice….He said he made a small batch, a handful and sold a few to ‘traders’…

Yeah Zozz, that would be nice since the L2 has the fat tube for the 26650.

Yes! I really like my SST40 L2. The only thing I miss that Ican’t put Andúril firmware on it.

Just to clarify – I only asked about the orange light. I have no idea if this will coincide with the release of the other two colors teased here.

On paper I would love all these colors – purple, orange etc.

In reality I find the existing Convoy colors – blue, red, green – very underwhelming compared to my old Maglite AAs and C/D models.

I compare my blue Maglite to my blue S2+ and there is no comparison – the Maglite really pops and looks attractive. The Convoy looks very dull and basic.

I guess it is the polishing or surface quality which makes the difference. I would like Simon to improve this before expanding the color options.

The S2+ is not my favorite light but I think I’d buy one of each color if I could, if just for modding them later Smile

Went the @justanotherguy’s route and asked Simon if he was making the orage colored S2+ and if he’d sell me the production test. Got an answer just saying “it’s in production”

I’d buy a copper S2+ Thumbs Up

The metal I really want is stainless steel, though, for sheer indestructibility Smile

I have five S2+ lights already, but I’d buy lots of stainless steel S2+ hosts!

different greys might just be differences in the dye supplier, anodizing variables, there was always only one listing for gray S2+. Well, one for the complete flashlight and one for the host and one for the short tube version, but you get the idea

It’s called a Convoy S7.

I like mine, but I didn’t make it very high-powered. The steel host can’t really shed heat fast enough for high power levels to be safe. So I used a nanjg driver with 4×7135 chips and a Nichia 219b 92CRI 4750K emitter. I made my own firmware for it, which I call “S7” in the code repository — five regular modes and a bunch of blinkies, with offtime no-memory so it resets to moon whenever it’s off for more than half a second.

It works okay with a SF L2 clip, but the clip diameter is a bit wider than the host, so it sticks out a little. Can also work with some other clips depending on what style one likes.

The host has a polished surface which looks nice. It also holds up pretty well to scratches and abuse because it’s steel. It’s heavy though. Currently I’ve got mine inside a lightsaber hilt to provide weight and blade illumination, as a temporary thing until I build a proper saber driver.

I think the S7 also has double O-rings, which is awesome.

The Convoy S7 sounds nice Smile

Unfortunately, it seems to be discontinued everywhere I can think of. Ah, well – it does allow some hope of a stainless steel S2+ someday…

Hey all. The three colors are in production but I don’t have an exact time-frame. The purple will be darker and hopefully a little more blue.

The copper S2+ was a limited production run and unfortunately there will not be more in the near future. It will probably happen but not in the next few months based on what Simon tells me.

A stainless S2+ is not likely unless there were extremely high demand. As ToyKeeper mentioned, stainless does not shed heat well so power would need to be relatively low and the light would be heavy. I do like the idea of stainless for a AA sized version of the S2+ though. Smile
