I just noticed that Simon’s store is now empty. I sent him a private message 3 days ago in BLF and he did not answer…

Simon says his store is closed for seven days.

Only 7 days? Sounds good. Did he mention if things are all ok? First thing that came to mind was some serious issue may have come up in health or personal life.

No, no health or personal issues. It’s an Aliexpress system closure (not his choice). Will be business as usual in 7 days.

Good, thanks for the info. So that means that we can still buy things from him by sending him a PM?

Shouldn’t be a problem. He’s been responding to messages (sent through Aliexpress) Just cant browse the store and impulse buy what I don’t actually need, so this next seven days will be healthier for my wallet.

I think he lays low during the weekends usually though?

If it's true, hopefully he's not really the manufacturer of Convoy flashlights that he's claimed to be.

The low mode should be lower.

You should change the title of this thread…unless you know for sure that he is out of biz. Maybe just put a ? at the end.

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.

I don't think he ever claimed to be, though many folks got that impression. Besides, the 'Convoy' name is just something that gets slapped on existing designs that already existed under other names (or no-name OEM stuff).

Iirc, that claim was when he was doing the S8 giveaway.  I suspect it was an error in language though.

I did insist a lot to know if convoy is Simon’s brand and he said yes and he said they assemble the flashlights.

Can you tell me why there is written “convoy” on each picture of this light even though the light is an UltraFire?

Is it just an error?

we assemble 502b ourself to assure quality

You are not in China ,so you dont know what ultrafire exactly is .

Ok, Convoy is your brand. Does that mean that Convoy branded flashlights such as the Convoy S2+ are designed and assembled by you?
Thanks for your reply.


yes ,we assemble it

Is Convoy your brand?

YES


Duno if that’s true though…

My English isn’t perfect but I’m trying to improve it. If you see something that doesn’t sound right or is just plain wrong, please feel free to point it out! Smile

“ assemble the flashlights “ not manufacture them from aluminum bar. That was / is my guess.

The question is, do all convoy lights pass through simon’s hands? Fasttech & all other shops pay simon for the Convoy flashlights they carry? Break it down to the flow of money.
