Convoy C8 Switch question

Hi everybody,

I have a single mode convoy c8 with flat white led. I would like to change the switch so that I will have momentary. Is this something I can just swap and where can I get the correct switch?(preferebly china)

Thanks!

A forward clicky should work fine for a momentary mode

This is a reverse clicky, which means it has no momentary capability.
Bear in mind that a switch with momentary capability (forward clicky) is longer.
You need more room, the switch spring will go deeper into the body (less room for battery).

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.
