20 is better than 10 if you use it and need it to be Tactical… even the GuppyDrv3 Tactical Mode with Lock Out takes 10-11-10 but the first 10 puts you in the “blink phase” for mode group “select”… it should have been more… IMHO..

It seems to me that Convoy M3 can also turn out interestingly. Or even Convoy S11, but the reflector will need to be modified.

 

Only if Simon make 12V e-switch driver then you could run it (FC40) in M3.

Not sure what emitter opening is in S11

SOS 9 clicks what if you press 1 extra and get stuck in 10% mode and starve to death on your island.

Does 2.5A driver really need temperature control that everyone complained about?

Temp control is always a good option. It’s better to have and don’t need than don’t have and need. Useful in small hosts. Maybe I would like to use this drivers for the s2+? Not necessarily with osram. C8+ with a green osram from Simon (2.8A) is hard to hold after 15 minutes.

^ thread in question

Thanks for your info.
Every S2+ owner (especially one who owns old S2+ and has plans to purchase new S2+) should read that thread about S2+‘s threads .
.
.
Hopefully Simon will have some explanations here.
I love LEGO’ing my S2+ , so this situation is kind of unfortunate, it’ll be good to have clear information from Simon, which production batch has new threads and whether any further changes on the latest batch ..

I don’t have any plans to get anymore S2+s so I’m fine, but I know it will affect others.

Although I do plan on getting a brass 18350 tube Wink

I think it is very good. I would only change the order to a more sensible one. And I would add a 50% mode, which will not significantly affect the brightness and increase the working time.

1. 50%
2. 100%
3. 20%-100%
4. 100%-20%
5. 100%-strobe
6. strobe-100%

20 clicks is very nice. Memory no needed.
Please add temp control.

yes, temp control inside by default

Hey Simon, or anyone who can answer – does the 5A SST-40 driver have LVP as well?

I’m assuming it does but there’s no mention of it on the product page.

Yes.This is a standard function. I ignored it when I wrote the description. This is my mistake.

Cannot find it now but guys are complaining that 18350 tubes cannot be installed on other S2+ tailes and heads…

The grey ones really suck, can’t recognize which one is new or old batch.
The color ones are still old batch I think,

New driver spring of S21A is ridiculous high.
No chance to use flashlight with 21700.
Even flat top18650 is 1mm over tube.

Simon, there is a growing selection of drivers and LEDs in your store. Could you divide the “LED, Driver” subcategory into two separate ones? “LED” and “Drivers” separately. It’s getting harder and harder to find anything.

Spring is fine, bypassed. And damping is perfect in case of drop there won’t be mode change. I have Molicel P42A and it works great

New one doesn’t have bypass.
For me S12 has perfect size battery tube for 21700. S21A is short.

If it’s not bypassed it means Simon built it with phosphorous bronze spring, not regular bypassed IMO

Okay, I have re-completed the grouping,
However, the page display is somewhat delayed,

probably the latest type.

 

Below I pictured some revisions of S2+ SST40 4-mode driver.

 

  • top pic shows the earlier SST40 4-mode driver (softer spring with spring-bypass wire pre-installed) ; driver spring is "triangle" shape. ; tailcap current measures (to verify again... something like 4.5+ Amps I think)
  • middle pic shows a fairly recent SST40 4-mode driver (a bit stiffer spring, not factory bypassed) ; driver spring is "cylindrical" shape ; tailcap current measures around 4.45 Amps
  • bottom pic shows a new SST40 4-mode driver (even stiffer spring, not factory bypassed), driver spring is sort of "trapezoid" shape, tailcap current measures around 4.8 Amps

 

 

 

bottom pic also shows the new S2+ body screw thread -- it will not "lego" with the 2 top S2+ body tubes. (the earlier shade of grey is also slightly diffferent (earlier S2+ gray is like a shade of bluish-gray, compared to slightly darker grey in newer S2+)
