Someone tried Convoy C8+ with Osram KW CSLNM1.TG?

Should be a very good little thrower. Might be too recent for reviews I’m afraid.

I got one of these … is it the same? I found it very interesting, in fact it seems to have 1000 lm + and it plays far away …. so the user interface I didn’t find the best …. I heard that Manker’s U22 II is better …. but I haven’t received it yet my.

I got one of these ... is it the same? I found it very interesting, in fact it seems to have 1000 lm + and it plays far away .... so the user interface I didn't find the best .... I heard that Manker's U22 II is better .... but I haven't received it yet my.

Both the Wainlight C8S-G ("C8+ with Osram NM1 LED) and the Boruit C8 (also uses Osram NM1 LED) appear to use the same 7135x8 driver (the "old S2+ 5/3-mode group" driver). Only pushes the LED to around 2.8 Amps of power, based on my tailcap measurement.

I have yet to try the new Convoy C8+ with Osram NM1 LED, but if the description is correct, the power used is 4.8 Amps, which would put the Osram at near peak output and will throw farther.

C8 osram will always be king. It actually appears to out throw my TN32 UT at great distances!

M21A is identical to C8+, with 21700 cell, 44 mm diameter. Soon to be release L21A, Osram, 64 mm diameter, 21700 cell, will throw further.

This is really impressive! This LED in a very large reflector would be like a laser like beam, impressive but not really useful.

Yeah, the TN32 UT is ugly and useless. But the portable and handy OSRAM C8 is an even better illuminator all-round. I really have nothing that is THIS useful at spotting stuff!

Yeah. I bought this one over a month ago and they still haven’t shipped. Apparently it is out of stock. For a month… lol.

There’s no replacement for displacement.

Hello Maverick! Mine has already been sent, but this has not been updated … I spoke to Manker but they say to wait, they claim the delay due to Covid.

I bough mine on August the 3rd. It is still in Processing. Customer servicer doesn’t help either. I can either get a refund or exchange for something else. But I really want it. Hahaha.

Received mine. This thing is like a little laser, excellent but not very useful when using it at short distance. But its so powerful you can even use it during daylight to illuminate something under shadow.
Also its weird how there is no difference between the 30% and 100% mode, with the SST-40 there is a very small difference only noticeable at long range, definitely not worth wasting the battery life.

I see a clear difference from the low, the other 2 modes are a little bit harder to tell but the 100% is definitely the brightest Smile

I have the clear Convoy C8+ its gorgeous and the cool white tint match the body color. Good thing is that the cool white is not blue like CREE LEDs.
