need S2+ pills

I need some S2+ pills to have extras, kinda like having spare P90s.

FT had (currently “out of stock”) https://www.fasttech.com/products/1583601 which is a mislabelled S2+ pill, but I doubt they’ll be getting it back. Lots of OOS items eventually just become discontinued and that’s that.

Someone in a thread here about an S2 pill mention one from KD, but that’s 404ed. Wouldn’t do me much good, as that’s the longer pill and I need the shorter one from an S2+.

Checked MTN, no joy.

I’ve got whole hosts, but I’d really just rather have extra pills to play with, than have a bunch of declawed S2+ tubes lying around.

Any ideas?

I understand he’ll supply replacement parts like O-rings (probably for free if you ask nicely), but wasn’t sure if he’d sell, say, 5 pills.

Somewhere on AX, I think. I’ll have to find the addy unless someone can supply it first. Big Smile

Simon sent me S2+ pills with my order when I asked him for a small fee.

Please get back to us on Simons reply. I too would like a few pills for the S2+.

I bought these from kaidomain.com they fit the S2+ but are a bit short for my liking, may be fine for you.

I think ts need stock brass pills.
There are several blf members that modded many S2+ and changed pill with copper one. They should have stock pills that they dont need anymore.

Sure, but when you look at the size, it’s the same as the OOS from Fasttech.
When you like using a TIR (which is longer than a standard OP S2+ reflector) you need to compensate it with a shorter pill.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

Did not know about the short KD pill, good for 18500 conversions (sand off the rim, triple mod).
It is rather expensive though…

Edit: no, that pill is still too long for the conversion. Perhaps combined with the Jaxman E2L 18350 tube, that one is a few mm longer than Simon’s 18350 tube.

Kewl, tnx!

Might be missing it entirely, but I didn’t see any “contact me!” link. How do youse contact him?

I’d get a couple of those ZWB filters at the very least, and some forward-clickies if they’d fit C8s (and hopefully others!), but he doesn’t list any S2+ pills at all. I’d be able to bundle all those together in one order if I could order those pills as well.

I wouldn’t sneeze at a copper pill. Big Smile

Even with brass, my S2+ turns into a curling-iron when left on high too long. Anything to shed heat from the chip, and warn me quicker to turn it down… Big Smile

At AliExpress Store there’s a “Contact Seller” button! (under “Service Center”)

BTW, some measures of Convoy (left) pill and the one mentioned of KDoimain (right) (just received it)!

Inner measures are the same so they take a 16mm plate and a 17 mm driver!

S2 is the shorter 8.4mm. S2+ is the taller 13mm.

The copper pills Kiriba-ru makes are for triple builds with integrated driver retaining and external threads. Would be too long for single emitter.

And you may need to be logged into Ali-Exp to get the contact sell button.

Aha. Thought “Service center” and “Contact now!” was like contacting Amazon (ie, AX admin) vs the seller.

Yep, assuming “si***ao” is Simon, I just sent him email.

Thanks, y’all!

Oh yeah, it did ax me for a login and password, so I did in fact log in.

If I don’t have js turned on, for some reason AX insists on feeding me the page in spanish. ??

Oh, as far as dimensions, I’m not fretting it. Stuffed the TIR in there, screwed it in snug, battery fits fine. Worst case, Mr Spring should take up the slack.

Thanks, I was about to say that.

Still, how does the S2’s pill go with an S2+ reflector? Does it even work, or is the slack excessive for even the longest 18650’s?

Thanks for clarifying the things, I totally forgot to do that Facepalm
I didn’t knew the smaller is for the S2, I never had one, I’ll just use this pill for a mod.
Thanks Thumbs Up

I guess is like Lightbringer said, the spring will play an important role here Wink

BTW, with the retaining ring in the back of the pills, drivers like biscotti or others that have extra 7135 chips in the back won’t fit as the ring doesn’t screw in properly ! I tried and it doesn’t work, so soldering is the best option!

Wellp, I ordered some zwb2 filters and forward-clicky switches, and he said he’d throw in 3 pills for free! That was really really nice of him!
