Ok I’m a believer now and checked my GT Micro which also has that, but not as noticeable. SRT7 looks like a black hole compared to that.

Possible to buy S21A with HighCRI: LH351D or SST20?

thank yyou

I don’t have a suitable driver.

thanks. How about using the orange/blue lighted caps in the S21A? Any concern of drawing too much current?

Anyone know what to do with the Convoy Z1 squeaking when adjusting focus?.

Simon said it was because of the wrong orings so I installed his replacements……same issue after about 3 minutes of focusing in and out. If it was for personal use I wouldn’t care, but I have to sell these.

lubed threads = no difference, lubed oring = problem solved, but it’ll dry and cause an issue down the line and also a dust problem. Installed thin S2+ orings and it’s perfectly fine but won’t seal properly.

This is a deal breaking issue for stocking these in the future. Some people report not having this issue and others who have reported it. I’ve had it on every single one, either straight away or after adjusting really fast for 3-5 minutes, the noise starts.

Really missing the push/pull setup after this mess.

Could someone do comparison how that neutral, almost warm white would look side by side with some real neutral/warm whites? Was that officially like 5700k?


Definitely cooler than SST40 5000K

Is this just camera goofiness or is the CULPM1.TG noticeably warmer in person too?

Push pull setups are simple, tried and tested. They also work well in rainy days for as long as you take a bit of care with the zoom mechanism.

I guess Simon is paying for the hazing with this flashlight, product assessment and development has been inadequate or not good enough. It still is great but, as with anything, you must believe right. This at least means mainly listening to the people who actually cares about the product you are developing, and listening to knowledgeable customers.

In any case one must not throw in the towel with things like this, but persevere and improve them.

Guys
Which convoy flashlight has the most diffused (the widest) light at short distance. (Flood beam ?) on a 21700 or 26500 battery and holds stably on high non turbo mode for 2 hours? Natural white?
S12 ?
Regards.

Yes, probably the S12. Get LH351D for maximum brightness and great tint

Adding some grease to the O-ring, will it improve it?

The lighted switches fit generally 18650 lights. In S21A he uses different switch and they don’t fit directly. Unless I miss something. Simon?

Grease fixes it but as mentioned, dust particles will then stick to it and get inside.

I think the issue is that the oring isn’t tight enough around the body. Sounds as if the friction is the issue. I installed a small S2+ oring and it was fine but it’s too small to seal it from water

This is somewhat off topic, but if I accidently click order received in AliEx before its actually arrived nothing really happens right? I prematurely clicked to confirm receipt while I was fiddling around with the mobile app just now

I think once you confirm that you received the order it means the seller will get paid and you can’t complain about not receiving the goods.

You get 15 days of buyer protection and then you’re not covered. Hope it was nothing too costly

Yeah I figured that. But probably not much else right?

Yeah I figured that too. It wasn’t that costly, just one of the lights I’ve been waiting on from Simon.

I saw one of the reviews here for “Gray convoy S21A with luminus sst40”, where a customer mentioned that he requested for Simon to add the lighted cap for his S21A. There’s even a picture of it. Check review with photo dated 19-Oct-2020.
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33026858558.html

However the customer didn’t go into detail whether the spring with lighted cap has that bypass wire. When purchased separately, the blue/orange lighted caps have no bypass wire.

If it is a package from Simon it will reach home. Just have faith.

You can also “talk with Eva” for a little while until you get in contact with some customer service agent, and report them such a thing. They should fix it. You may need to tell Eva a few lies, though.

Hey Bro, you look like new here. As a Pole, please let me welcome you here on behalf of all the users.
Convoy makes mostly lights with a reflector which means there’s a hotspot and some (depending mostly on reflector shape) spill.
In my opinion the most flody is Convoy Z1, which can zoom the beam. By rotating the head you make the beam wide or narrow. Contrary to reflector flashlights, zoom (aspherical lens) give you more uniform beam with no hotspot. But ZOOMies has their disadvantages. Among others, they are difficult to make them airtight and they loose some light (which is emitted on too small angle to hit the lens). So if you don’t mind the disadvantages, a zoomie can give you both: focused or wide beam.
Alternatively you might want to search for flashlight with TIR lens. TIR lens replaces reflector, also loses some power (but not as much as zoomie), but can mix the beam and regulate it’s width permanently.
Today I’ve received Seeknite X6s and I’m really impressed by it. It’s like Astrolux X6, beautiful Nichia 90+ CRI beam and lots of flood. Actually it’s way more floody than Emisar D4s with XP-L HD. It’s still available and the price is IMHO awesome considering what you get.

Anyone knows the Cut Off Voltage for M21C-U XHP70.2 with the new ramping driver

Does it have Low Voltage “Protection” or just Low Voltage “Warning”

The listing shows

Quote:

Low voltage warning: yes

The flashlight has low voltage protection and temperature control protection.

Is the S21B compatible with the new 8A buck driver? I’m not interested in the output so much as the additional efficiency.

My S21B flashes out 5 Volts at battery check with a recharged battery Facepalm
It seems to be correct if voltage is under 4.00V.

Well, the 8A single cell buck driver is ∅22mm so for as long as the S21B uses a ∅22mm driver it should be compatible.

I think the S21B uses a ∅20mm driver, but since the S21B host advertisement lacks this information the only thing worth saying is the following: Simon, pay attention and good care of the information provided with your products. Your product advertisements must provide all customer required information.

Now that I'm here, I will also seize the opportunity to say that as a rule anti-reflective coated lenses damage the tint and CRI of flashlights. This of course is a way to tell Simon that some customers would prefer to order flashlights with good quality non-coated lenses, namely those who care for tint and CRI and less about throw.

You can read more about AR-coated lenses here and in the thread: AR Lens coatings - just a gimmick?

Single layer AR-coated lenses increase output very little and the price is the obvious “beam greenery”. The solution is multi-layer AR coatings (5+ layers), or no coating.

The information on the driver diameter has been kind of inconsistent, as you said the host listing is sparse, and the only information I’ve been able to find was this comment saying it was 22mm and this comment asking about using a 20mm to 17mm adapter to put in a different driver.
