WTB: 12.5mm x 5.5mm or close.. clear tail cap boot.

I am looking for one of these for the Convoy T2 as I have a working lighted switch for it. I am not sure if it is considered 12.5mm or 12mm, but I have not found any clear ones on aliexpress or the other usual places.

I have one, I probably purchased from DX a while back, the sku is 24710, The size is 14mm x 17mm at the base 1 mm thick if you need it.

I also found this for a convoy T2, have not used that store so DYOR

I have 14mm caps and they are just not right… worked for about 30 minutes trimming and fitting but it was just not right. The T2 is smaller than all of the other Convoy lights, I built one of the stacked and joined boards (PD68) and it works well in the chassis and with the stock black cap the switch is reliable. I measured the part with calipers and about as close as I could get was 12.5mm. That said, I did not have any with a base that was 1mm, my test subjects were 1.5 or thicker.

I just fitted hard-to-find ring magnets in the T2 cap.  12mm is what you want but if it's sold as 12.5 that'd be fine.  4mm is about the max height to the top of the ears from the outside base/hole and I think it was only about 1mm thick, so watch the measurements carefully if you want to tail stand.  Did you look at the LHT Flashlight Store already (Kaidomain's ali store)?  I got some 12mm from them a couple years ago and I think I remember seeing clear as an option.  If they don't show it, message them and I'll bet they have it or can get it for you.

Their ali store is so confusing...five or seven listings for the same size boots.  lol.  I looked at all of them and no clear (they like to use "transparent").  Here's that link in case you want to try messaging there also.

I love the T2 with the magnets.  Did three Tool AA caps as well with the same magnets but you have to remove metal for those.  I think the twin-stack will hold up but if/when Simon gets the taller 4mm rings I may order a couple from him.  He must be super busy lately...so many new lights and accessories and custom requests!
