Hi. This is a tail light I made because the expensive cat eye I bought disappeared and I refused to spend the $$ for another. The body is that of a convoy S2, with a 2× 7135, nanjg driver powering two, red, XP-E LEDs in parallel. I cut off 1/2 of the head and sanded the remainder of the head flat to match the level of the pill, which was also sanded flat. The driver is an old school, 20 mode version bought from dx a few years ago. It gives me what I think is a perfect 2 Hz mode for cycling and attaches to my backpack or jersey pocket with a small caribiner. The cone is stuck on with clear shoo goo Smile

My gratitude to those who are willing and able to help others (in whatever way you can)! Being human is more than just existing for yourself. Smile

An older myth that made a piece of flashlight history, of which I had the luck to test and review a prototype of.

 Count me in!

Here's a pair of BLF A6 Special Edition flashlights, flanking a ZebraLight SC62w. I just got the short 18350 battery tube for the A6, and now the SC62 is beginning to feel some competition.

This is my favorite light and gets most of the EDC time

EagleTac TX25C2 with the following modifications

Cut down and polished clip and used blue Locktite on the metal ring nut holding the clip so it doesn’t loosen with use as it usually did.
XP-L HI V3 1C from Kaidomain, on 16mm Noctigon copper MPCB, love the tint! I centered it on the reflector with a modified plastic centering ring
Found a slightly bigger and deeper smooth reflector than the stock one on Kaidomain that gives it a slightly tighter hotspot for more throw
Lapped and polished the Base and the copper MPCB and used Artic Silver 5 for better heat transfer to the body of the flashlight
FET 22mm e-switch driver with Moppydrv multi-group firmware, mostly use it on group mode 11
Thicker silicon wires (20ga)
Solder braided the driver spring and also solder braided the tail cap spring to the aluminum tail cap to reduce resistance
I only run it on either a NCR18650GA or LG18650MJ1 3500mah batteries for added runtime

I definetly love this light!

Can’t help but to show my collection of lights given by a member here (djozz) (thanks again Big Smile )

about 90% of his unused lights were my weekly lights that I use now. Smile

What if I don’t have a camera? – I have 32 lights (4 are Olight), but no way to show you.

Yeah, I know that’s it’s on the Smart Phones too, but I don’t have (or even want) one of them either. – I Hate being bothered by phones, though I do have a magicJack just for my ‘family’ – VOIP.


I guess that I’m just too old and stuck in my ways to enter, but really think that the new S2 is cool!

So – Thanks anyway,

My lights: JetBeam WL-S1, Thorefire PF04, Lumapower Avenger RX (2 AAA configuration) and BLF A6 SE

Each is used in a specific setting and performs amazingly. The JetBeam is my favorite because of the amazing range of battery types it can take with no additional tubes.

My newer collection. I personally prefer single 18650 or 14500 form factor over big lights.

I bought this from Sam’s before finding flashoholic support online, it was all tan paint with yellow accents. The threads were glued so the paint got damaged on the battery tube. The missing paint on the tail cap came off with the masking tape. The gunmetal grey is Solid Film Lubricant, a molybdenum epoxy in aerosol format that can be used to coat aluminum firearm receivers when the ano has worn off. So I thought it might work on the bare Al of a flashlight.

The driver has been replaced with a FET+7135 the emitter is dedomed XP-L V6 3D and it has C8 style reflector. Under the ridged collar is a usb port that can be used to charge a portable device or charge the proprietary 18650. I kind of have an idea for making it work with any 18650 but it might take some tweaking. As it is now the charging feature charges the cell reliably to 4.16v and outputs 5v @ 1A. The screw down collar actually sucks heat out of the body pretty well after I cleaned the threads and put a bit of thermal compound on them. It runs fairly cool on high and competes with any others of the same class for brightness and throw with an IMR. It’s not my favorite but I’ve grown kind of attached to it and can see having it for years. I might even just remove the gimmicky usb cca and just add more brass under the driver.

The best signature ever.
