I’m interested in this. Can someone recommend which emitter is good for throw in neutral or warm tint with the smooth reflector? What are the differences between the drivers?

As far as S2+es, I way prefer TIR lenses in ‘em vs reflectors.

With reflectors, you’ll get a fried-egg beam (yellow hotspot, blue-white spill), whereas most TIRs will blend the colors for a way nicer beam.

5° and 8° TIRs are available, and they’re easily interchangeable in case you want to swap in a 60° for more flood, etc.

Can you show me sample beam pattern of 5 and 8-degree TIR? Thanks. And where one can get them (preferably not Amazon, as I’m on the other side of the Globe..)

Not really, no pix to speak of, but others might.

Only other places I’ve seen are LEDSupply and Fasttech.

My Copper S2+ finally arrived after a month! I'm extremely pleased with it. It has a wonderful smooth and luxurious-looking finish with the usual exemplary S2+ build quality, and the XPL-HI packs a fair old warm-coloured punch in such a small package. It can't of course hold a candle to my frankly ridiculous jet fuel hot rod S2+ Triple, but that's an unfair comparison!

 

I love how it weighs about 3 times as much as a normal S2+, too.

 

I tried to get the colour of the copper as accurate as possible when editing these photos.

Sorry, I get too used to my QHD screens! I’ve shrunk them a bit now.

I ordered my Copper Convoy S2+ as a host. When I soldered in the driver and the led I wondered why it didn’t light up. Then I unscrewed the tailcap and look what I found Facepalm

I just wanted to note this in case someone’s S2+ does not turn on as well. Apart from that little flaw that is fixed within seconds I’m very satisfied with the Copper Convoy S2+. The transparent coating lets the copper stay shiny instead of getting ugly brown with use. Along with my Convoy L6 and my Emisar D4 it is the most beautiful flashlight I own! Love

I could swap the Cu body with an alu body, so I assume you can swap heads with an alu S2+.

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

That is a wish, right? The 18350 tube is not available (yet), is it?
With shorty tube I would consider this Cu version Blushing

Why don’t y’all send Simon a note and ask him to have the Copper 18350 tube made, if he hasn’t already chosen to do so he might re-consider it… Wink

Hum…maybe we can try again? Wink
If the members that already have a Cu S2+ (and want or…need Evil a shorty tube) & the ones that don’t have one, are interested in shorty tubes, maybe we can check with Simon again if he’ll manage to do them! Innocent

It would be neat to have male/male joining sleeves (the sleeve would be female on each end) in copper to connect multiple 18350 tubes together for use with, say, a 6V emitter such as the 50.2 or 70.2 or MT-G2, even 3 tubes for a 9V MT-G2. A fourth tube for a 50.2 quad in 2S2P for 12V operation from 4 cells… the options are very broad. Wink The sleeves would act as grip along the length of the tube. Big Smile

short tube needs a good saw, some sanding plane then solder with very little paste both pieces together
if the coating does not get damaged the result may look good enough or need some sort of mild sand blasting or so to hide the solder connection

I’m new here, and new to ordering things on Ali; it says this is out of stock. Is this because he has a limited number he isn’t posting stock? I’d love this with the metal switch, is that a possible order modification in order notes?

Also, I’m hoping to eventually start modifying flashlights. Should I only order the host or is it as easy to order the full flashlight and then take the other stuff out when I’m ready to get into modifications? I’m leaning that way but would like to do things as simply as possible to get started.

Thank you for your time.

Hi and welcome to BLF Vortexbig Party
First warning, prepare your pockets Cash

Yup, the Convoy S2+ Copper seems to be out of stock right now. Maybe it will be re-added later! Or you can send a message on AliExpress to the seller (Simon Mao) and ask him about the availability!

About the metal switch in that light, please note that it is only available with the rubber button.
This version’s host is a “normal” one, not like the “Desert Tan” or the “Silver” with black metal button.

To put the metal switch in the “normal” hosts…it is possible (see here or here ), but the tailcap structure has to be modded. It can be done, but…I still don’t know how Big Smile

About modding, I’ll only speak for my experience: I bought the “full” light and then started by replacing the LEDs, then the drivers. I guess many people here may have started other way, so I hope they can share!!

I think the only real difference is you miss out on using a retaining ring on the driver pill. I hate soldering drivers to pills and will choose a retaining ring whenever possible. Stock S2+ lights come with the driver soldered to pill and no ring.
