Waiting for the light to turn green - Green Convoy S2+

Edit 03-14-16
The short (18350) green tubes are now listed in the Convoy store. Note: The black 18350 tubes are also listed.
Here is the link to the green S2+ 18350 tube:

Edit 12-29-15
The deep carry clip is now available in Simon’s store here.

Since this one fit’s multiple lights I created a new thread for the clip here
http://budgetlightforum.com/node/43835

Edit 12-21-15
The host is now available in the store.

Edit 12-09-15
It’s here! :bigsmile: The green Convoy S2+ is available now on Simon’s store.
Here is the link http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Convoy-S2-green-Cree-XML2-U2-1A-EDC-LED-Flashlight-torch-lantern-self-defense-camping-light/330416_32564860692.html


The green Convoy S2+ that is!
Bugging Simon long enough for the blue S2+ worked out nicely so I kept dropping the green hint even though he originally told me “Green flashlights are ugly”. Big Smile I’m sure others asked him for it too. Well he listened. I don’t have a promise of production yet but since he sent me a sneak peak I had to share. Let me know what you all think. I’m looking for feedback to give to Simon. We all know ToyKeeper and Halo want purple Wink Let’s get some feedback on this one though and then we can address the rest of the rainbow… Who knows, he might have the new deep carry clip ready by the time this one hits production!

Edit: 11-24-15

This is what the production version looks like with the updated darker green color. I left the original picture below for reference.

Looks great! S2+ is a light I could see myself having a full set of the colors of the rainbow… and their shorty version too. Silly

Glad you like it. I do too. I was actually trying for green first as it’s my favorite color but I knew after the “ugly” comment that one would take more convincing and he already had a blue sample collecting dust so that was an easier sell. To be honest I didn’t think he was going to do it but then he surprised me with that picture last night. I’m going to have all the colors too… and short tubes… and deep carry clips. Simon is really on a roll these last few months. The L2 will be out soon and the short tubes are already available for red and blue! If the green gets a good response I’m sure the short tubes for it will follow too.
In case you haven’t seen the blue and red shorties check these out.

OH, NOW HE TELLS ME!

I just placed another order with Simon for a Blue Convoy S2+.

I would’ve waited if I had known the green was coming… Tired

Okay, yes the green looks very nice, but:

Purple = want (for a UV build?) :bigsmile:

For me, this is as pretty as green can get. Cars in this color are amazing, and it sure works out for flashlights.
But purple, ohh I want purple! Cash

I would love to see a “white” like Hank did on the M43…

But I agree, Simon is on a roll. Almost too much, because as soon as I order something new he announces something newer. It’s getting to be like the cell phone market.

I had the same thought last night. If he made a white version well first of all there are very few white lights out there but my main goal was a Captain America shorty using a red tail cap, white body and Blue head. Beer

Hm, I’d sure like to see the S2+ in the gold color he’s using for other Convoy models.

Anyone know for sure which of the Convoy lights lego together, heads/tubes/tailcaps with threads that are consistently the same?
(IF YOU KNOW please add that to

Silly I didn’t know either. I stopped bugging him about it (well, took a break… I don’t stop) a month ago and just last night he surprised me with that picture.

DANGIT, I was trying to save some money! Big Smile

edit – well, looks like my money is safe. I don’t want to buy 2 of them. Ah well, Simon’s loss.

You will, eventually (grin).

I wonder if, on request, Simon would offer a “one blue and one red” lot, though.

Nope.
No interest whatsoever in having 2. I have 2 blue S2+ lights, and I only want 1 short. No need for 2. I’m never buying a red or green, either. So Simon can sell me just one, or none at all. Just like the diffusers he sells, I do not want 5, I want 1. But he doesn’t sell just one, so I’ll never buy one from him.

Fortunately RMM sells the grey 18350 S2 light individually else I’d never have bought one of those, either.

That is absolutely gorgeous!

Now if I could have the BLF A6 with short 18350 tube in that green color I would gladly pay a premium.

While I would never discourage anyone from buying from RMM if you contact Simon you’ll find he’s very accommodating. Based on personal experience, I’d guess he would probably sell you exactly what you’re asking for.

Do you know what demographic it will be geared towards? I fall under guy and, at times, lover, so I’m not sure if the green will fit my needs yet.

HA! I actually struggled with that in creating the title based on Simon’s original ridiculous yet hilarious post for the red s2+. For the blue it was easy enough to just flip the script but green… I guess it’s neutralish? I suppose I could have opted for something like “Green S2+ flashlight, for Martians, to feed your inner alien broccoli and peas…” I tend to go overboard with these things. Then again, I might rename this thread to exactly that. Big Smile If Simon confirms he will actually make this emerald dream then maybe you should all throw in suggestions for the best title. I’m sure if I named it Green S2+ it would attract more attention but all I have is a tease of a photo so far. I didn’t start the blue S2+ post until he confirmed it was actually going into production. I think this one is going to happen though. I figured I might want to rename it once he confirms production. I think “For Martians…” has potential. What else do we have? Throw your title suggestions out there. :bigsmile:

So red/gold would be the iron man version? I’m surprised no ones mentioned green lantern, ought to be automatic. Maybe more appropriate for a green A6 since at least it has a candle mode.

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

By the way, I do like the green but what’s up with the different tube styles? Also, could be more emerald and less aqua.

It’s the same tube, it’s just backwards on one of the lights

Ironman! I love it! Hadn’t even thought of that. I don’t think he makes the gold anymore though. I don’t see any gold on his store so I imagine any out there are just older stock. I always though the gold was a little gaudy myself but then again I’ve never seen one in person and I must admit I love the Ironman version idea. Beer Beer
