Does the GT-FC40 in M21C have good throw and beam rendition?

Also, can all Convoy L6’s be run on 2 × 26350s in shorty mode?

Yes, there are a couple of real world photos in my review – see link in my signature. The light is half way between being floody and throwy.

Simon, did I see you are working on a larger cutout reflector for the M21B?

I just received my S11 GT FC-40, and love it. I would like it even more in a single 21700 host like the M21B though!

Hi Simon, 
Few hours ago i received my new C8+ CSLNM1 and M21A CULPM1, unfortunately the M21A LED is not centered correctly cry






I had a similar problem on another convoy light with osram. IMHO that light you have is capable of 1000m throw. Shining it on a wall just 10 feet away with produce artifacts from the lobes. When I took mine outdoors, The distortion all went away or was impossible to detect. Again, IMHO there is nothing wrong with your light. The Osram led is less forgiving than say an XHP70.2.

I wish that was also available in S16. This is on the wishlist for my next order… Love

S16 or M21B with SFT-40 5000K/6500K (8A constant current driver)

S16 or M21B with FC40 3000K/4500K

S16 or M21B with XHP70.2 4000K

… plus some more of your great flat top adapters for 3X21A and 4X18A.

L6 can not work with 26650 without additional 5mm magnet spacer.
Can Convoy make any flashlight without bug, or you get what you pay for?

I think you should have more respect for one of the few people who has always cared about our community.
Simon does not deserve a comment like this.

Simon will the GTFC 40 be offered in the s21? Also will the sft be offered in warmer tints? Thank you as always

The size of the S21 flashlight is too small. If the FC40 LED is installed on it, the heat will be too large, so I have no such plan.
At present, the factory only produces the 6500K version of sft40. I have not heard that they have plans to produce medium white light and warm light.

Because the flashlight must be compatible with 65mm to 70mm batteries, if you use 65mm batteries. It will be significantly shorter, and now I provide the corresponding accessories.

26mm PCB board for series connection

It’s not difficult to produce corresponding reflector. I just worry about the heat.

1S 6V 3A driver runs well my S21A with xhp70.2.

Heat is quite good on medium modes and of course it gets hot on 100% but regulation steps down accordingly.

FC40/XHP70 reflectors for M21B, S16 and S21 would be awesome.

 

 

 

 

Also XHP50.3HI 90CRI is coming

This requires customized drivers. For example, turbo mode needs to be turned on by double-clicking the switch, and the working time will not exceed 30 seconds.

Heat can be managed in a couple ways. Either by amp limiting in the driver design (permanent), or a driver design that gives you the best of both worlds:

  • support max amps via a direct FET channel, or amp limited depending on the emitter used (ex: linear regulated)
  • smart thermal management, as implemented in Anduril or Anduril 2

It may require high quality springs, or double springs, or bypasses.

This is why a few of us have been mentioning an Anduril or Anduril 2 option because you can get the best amps a LED supports, but with the safety of true thermal regulation/management by limiting the max temperature via an MCU internal sensor, or external sensor.

I would like to see more aggressive thermal fins on some lights as well. For example with the new 3X21A, there are many fins in the proper area but they are too shallow - they need to go deeper into the body, and if they did, it should reduce the weight as well -- another advantage.

Less aluminum mass if possible, more surface area -- good goals.

Not at all. Your drivers are perfect for it (6V/3A and 12V/2.5A)

Rear spring is very small.
Actually, this model is springs-free!

Simon, if possible I’d like to request you to make a special run of 2-26800 tubes for your L series. Maybe a sample run? I now you’ve stated that you’ll be making extensions, however a few may prefer solid one piece tubes. Part of the Convoy success is you make a very solid product.
