convoy m1 and m2

Hello

Just saw these two on AE convoy store:

Convoy M1 Cree XPL HI LED, DTP plate, 7135*8 biscotti, smooth reflector
https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Convoy-M1-Cree-XPL-HI-LED-DTP-p...

Convoy M2 Cree XPL HI LED, DTP plate, 7135*8 biscotti, smooth reflector
https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Convoy-M2-Cree-XPL-HI-LED-DTP-p...

Are this new models?

Kind regards

They appear to be, as they are in the new products section. Looks like an emitter upgrade. Lets hope for a group buy or coupon Smile

They were good hosts before. Now they’re good flashlights.

The low mode should be lower.

Simon added new LEDs and reflectors to old quality models. This one should throw much better that origin version.

I bought mine as hosts, so they didn’t throw at all!

It’s similar in concept to the Jaxman M8 throw version : XPL-HI + smooth reflector = compact sized tight hotspot thrower. The previous M1 and M2 were XM-L2 + orange peel reflector = balanced flood and throw.

Ooooo…… I can get a 3000K emitter and a UI that lets me always start in low and eliminate all blinky modes. Heck ya, I need this.

I don’t have these new XP-L HI versions, but I have both XM-L2 versions. The M2 has a smaller head than the M1, so it’s a little bit more pocketable. Otherwise, I didn’t see any major beam differences between the M1 and M2.

Swap the XP-L HI for an Osram KW CSLNM1.TG and you’ve got a super nice pocket thrower !
My Olight R20 is nearly the same dimensions and I love it with the new White King Cool

Interesting! The M1 with an HI emitter should throw pretty nicely for a pocketable model.

Also the L6 got SMO reflector option with XHP70.2 and output bumped to 4300 lumens. And L2 will get XHP50.2 led and new driver for it.

Thank you for this info!

I’ve been waiting for an L6 with a 70.2 and in clear finish Smile

I'm tempted to get either the M1 or M2 with the new emitter and the updated firmware. XM-L2 with 3 modes versions were not worth getting since 2015 IMO. Very happy to see these models make a "comeback"

Just for a moment... Okay I may stay a little longer

Even with the old XM-L2, an M1 with Biscotti is amazing. I have one and love it to pieces.

Biscotti is more important than the type of LED to me as well! Although it feels "wrong" when an S2+ with XP-L HI out-throws an OP XM-L2 M1 with its larger head.

Is it really a newly designed reflector? Looks like a 5050 size opening to me, like the only difference is that it’s SMO instead of OP.

Nothing really wrong with that, just trying to figure out why everyone’s saying new reflector.

Any idea if Simon is selling the new SMO reflector for the Convoy M2? I’d like to replace the OP reflector that came with the M2 host that I bought.

Convoy M1- 7135 × 8 – Biscotti .. XP-L HI

https://m.aliexpress.com/item/32958113158.html?spm=a2g0n.orderlist-amp.i...
………..

I usually get the M1 in host form & make my own. I absolutely love the M1!!

But I ordered a 7135 × 8 with Biscotti M1 the other day & it just arrived today.

I usually have no troubled at all operating any UI, but this one has me stumped. I have been fooling with it for well over an hour with no sucess. Facepalm
Well I did somehow manage to eliminate the blinky operations. (strobe, SOS, etc.)
BUT… I have no idea how I did that & can’t get them back or change to any other mode.

I am following the directions as they are written…. ‘as far as I know anyway’.
I have also searched other threads & they offer no further help.

Is there some type glitch in the Biscotti UI that I may not be aware of?

I cannot purposefully get it to do anything it is supposed to.

Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated….
