Just revieved a half dozen holsters and my first convoy tube light- the s21b with xhp50 5000k, everything is fantastic!

Thank you Simon! Quick shipping and flawless products.

Never knew what I was missing with this simple little light! Fantastic size and functions great, beam is awesome.

What could make it better you say? When your KR4 pocket clips PERFECTLY fits on your convoy s21b, that’s what! Can’t wait for my new batch of kr4 deep carry clips to come in now.

And you still have a working flashlight? The electrical path was not disconnected installing clip?

I “extended” the connection using a length of 18 gauge copper wire – same thickness as the clip “band”- bent into a circle the same size as the contact point in the tail cap (outer ring). Takes a couple tries of trimming and refitting and flattening.

Did the same thing on my d4v2 to install the fw3a clip a week or two ago. They both have been working well. Please don’t tell me this is a terrible idea… Crying

I’m planning to buy this clip for the S21A/B. It must be good.

yea i have seen tis one on AX before, but when looking into it more i don’t like having the exposed nut holding the screws on. Would definitely work though, and with some locktite (superglue) would probably never come off on its own

That clip is soft and it won’t hold heavy S21.

What i’m using is standard S2/S2+ clip (clip on) which works great with big brother.

When given the choice, I think its always best practice to select a -0.0020 DUV in the neutral whites (3750-5250K). In my opinion, when you go above or below this, returning to the BBL is fine.

SKV, I wasn’t so lucky with the 4000k fc40 sample that I received late 2020. I don’t have a way to measure, but I’d say its well over +0.0100. With two layers of eighth minus green AND Joshks paint, its still slightly green. Honestly the subjective color rendering before tint correction was easily worse than 80cri XPLHDs and even my 4000k MTG2. Saturation was terrible. Its okay now, but there’s angular tint shift due to the filters and output has dropped too much. Waiting on one from Simon now. Hope these truly are BBL.

So when I can buy everything else, except fc-40 led which I already have?
Any smaller hosts than L6? Single cells bad?

Oh yeah, now I remember seeing pics of that in some thread. I’m going to put that on my shopping list. Thanks!

Forgot to ask, is that coming special 3-mode (?) driver going to be any better? Maukka did some testing few pages ago, but did you measure any lumens with XHP35 Hi driver?

I just think the 2.3A current is a bit small. Of course, if you like this configuration, I will add a link soon.

Hello Simon,

if you think about raising driver current specifically for this host + led combination, I think, 3A would be the best setting (keeping in mind, that this host is smaller than L6 and L21A).

I agree, XHP35 driver upgraded to 3-3.5A wiuld be great in M21C

Anything change with the XHP35 to run at higher amps? From this old test here, it peaks at ~2.5 amps: https://budgetlightforum.com/node/51772, and at 3.5 amps output starts turning blue.

We are thinking to pair this driver with FC40...

Oops, yeah I see. Depends if parts/design have to, and can, be changed to run at higher amps

I think it's possible. M21C driver cavity can accommodate even bigger components than they are now on present drivers.

Clearance will help for a bigger coil, and depends. For example on the original BLF GT buck driver DEL designed, he had designed in more amp capability, think ~5 amps or so, if I recall.Of course there was plenty of room on that driver in that light.
