A couple notes:

  • The L6 will not come with 18650 spacers for the reasons previously listed but a bunch of members stepped in with easy to obtain spacer options.
  • As far as tint options, last Friday Simon said only the N4-1C is available right now but he will try to get more tint options. I’ve asked to at least try to come up with something around 5000k for a decent neutral option.
  • A few people asked if the L2 tubes will work with the L6. I can now confirm that yes, they are compatible. Same threads.

Edit: I forgot to mention that Simon did a runtime test last night. The L6 in turbo ran for 80 minutes on two KeepPower 5200mAh cells at which point he describes it as very very very hot. Oops This of course was indoors with no air circulation so in actual outdoor use the heat should be much more manageable. More testing results will be posted when they are received.

Many thanks for the updates. Looking forward to the light. Compared to “that other light” I prefer the looks, but more importantly something else than cool white (ugh!). Hopefully, Simon will succeed in getting a NW option Smile

If the driver survived the entire turbo run then it’s really good news Smile And at 5A+ there’s no reason to mod… This could be my only fully stock Convoy light!

I’m in no rush, either.

My budget is shot to h*ll. I’m going to have to sell some flashlights or watches to make up the difference. Sick

Rule 1-1 as it applies to life, take it as it comes.

If we keep getting lights like this, I won’t need to revamp all of my old Mag-Mods… But I will of course.

Thanks for your efforts to get a neutral tint. Not sure if I’ll purchase without it.

There will always be more darkness than I have lights.

Subscribed… I bought some extra 26650s when I ordered the Cometa and this would be an excellent use for them. Smile

Thanks for the answers! I definitely going to buy one Big Smile
And I placed the bug in my friend ears so he will also. He wanted an L2 but I told him: Hey there is an L6 nearly coming!

I find it impossible to buy any light, to be satisfied and not want more.

Totally agree with you. I started a cheap ebay light, then another, and the first Convoy the C8 changed everything. Now I have 14-15 led lights, who knows Smile

That’s my story too. Big Smile Started with a couple SK-68 clones, then started scouring “the bay” then getting tired of finicky flickering lights I ordered my first “real” flashlight. Like you it was a Convoy C8. Things haven’t been the same since. In the last six months or so I’ve given away 14-15 lights. It’s like a sickness… I bright shiny sickness. LOL I haven’t actually gathered all my lights in one place and tried to count them in a long time but the number is getting up there…

I clearly remember showing a light to my neighbor in his girlfriends presence. She asked “How many lights do you have?” I said 29. She asked “Gosh! How many lights do you NEED?!” I said, without hesitation, 30. Wink

Now I have 140 plus and more incoming. Go figure.

BLFer? Agreed, 140 flashlights is a BLF’er! 140 Maxed Out off the hook Torches Wink is way beyond being just a BLF’er!!! and not one stock light, “YET”? Hmmm…… The S70 is sporting a smooth D01 reflector, and the Extended Courui D01 is sporting the S70 Op reflector now… hmmmm more Leg-o-ing going on……

I have about 40+ lights and i seriously have no room for them all! then if i move them i am worried they will go missing… since i was a kid i always liked flashlight i don’t know why. so i had a few lights here and there always but it took of in 2009 when i bought a LED lenser p7 then a sk68 clone and a few crap lights between then i think like led lesner tac torch this might be an Australian only model? in 2011 when it first came out i bought the jetbeam BC40 i remember showing every one and they where like stunned lol….

A favorite “trick” is to “innocently” point the light at my hand while showing it off, hit Turbo. They recoil like a bomb went off in my hand. Hilarious, somewhat blinding, but hilarious… they never expect it. Smile

When my wife told me she was getting tired of finding flashlights everywhere and I needed to figure something out I said “You’re right. I need to get a nice display case!” Big Smile

Dangit! just when I though I was going to bed I had to check my email. I don’t know if I said anything but the first clear anodizing run did not come out well. Looked more like just grey. Well look what Simon just sent.

Looks pretty clear to me…

On that note. Good night all. Don’t forget to tip your waitress…I’m here all week.

I planned right from the start to have a clear anodized version of the L6 and a few others but we needed to wait for the factory to get the clear right. As you can see, they did it. Grad
Seems a no brainer to put it on the S2+ as well. That one I want to wait for the black steel button though. My current S2+ dream light is clear anodized with the black clip and black stainless switch with that “PilotDog glow” showing through like the ones emarkd made. LOL. Spun out again. Ok back on track now…
