I would have to agree with others… an S21 with this LED would be awesome… Besides… who runs on turbo? Smile

Simon

Are you planning on a GT-FC40 version of the 4×18A?

I would love to upgrade mine, but unfortunately the XHP70.2 is 6V instead of the 12V the GT FC40 LED needs.

When a 12V driver is available, please let us know.

I agree, an S21 with the gt fc40 would be awesome. Those wanting prolonged use with fewer heat concerns could easily use one of the mode groups with a 50% max mode.

I would love it if Simon offered this with a heavy orange peel reflector. One could only dream. Smile

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.

26800 extension tube will be available in one week

Simon does is possible ask at GT FC40 manufacture to produce Leds such as 5050,3535 and smaller size
from 2000k to 4500k CCT range. CRI >90, R9 >80 with tint below BBL?
They would be nice for next variable temperature light

yes, it has .
but it’s 12V LED, it needs special driver .I have to prepare customized drivers for them, which will increase costs.

i will get 219B R9080 in one week sw30,sw35 sw45,how about this

Received my 3×21A SFT40, I am impressed in the quality of manufacture and anodizing put into it, no defects or blemishes at all, charging my 21700 Epoch 50G batteries right now, can’t wait to get dark! Cool

BTW mine is from the second batch since it came with the new flat-to-top 21700 adapter that is molded instead of the deformed 1st batch seen in some pictures.

The only thing is that it did not come with a user manual (Not that I need it but there should be one included)

No, other than Richard at MTN but he seems to have bailed or not been able to restock lately.  I've never ordered from this outfit but I think people on here have spoken well of them recently:  https://mohrlumens.com/collections/flashlights/convoy

JC Customs and Vinh have some of course, but nothing stock, I think.  There are a few floating around on Amazon if you search for the model (but don't include "convoy" in the search terms).  I think Simon opened a store on Amazon US with just a few items but still shipping from China and the prices were pretty high (Amazon fees no doubt).

Mohrlumens stocks some convoy but only in small batches and stock comes and goes pretty quickly.

Mtn doesn’t stock complete lights anymore, only hosts.

amazon 15% fee
aliexpress 8% fee

I would like to know your shopping habits. Are you more willing to spend more money to shop on Amazon, or are you willing to go shopping on AliExpress?

I really want to improve my Amazon store. However, Amazon’s policy is getting stricter and funds are easily frozen.
Currently eBay does not welcome Chinese merchants. My account did not violate any rules and was frozen on the second day.

Based in Australia so different circumstances. My convoy Torches purchased over the last 4 years:

2018: GB 6 , BG 3, AE 4
2019: BG 1
2020: BG 1, AE 6
2021: BG1

Not available from AmazonAU afaik, pretty used to 2-3+ weeks from AE. Keep the good lights coming Big Smile

Amazon is a tough place for small businesses...lots of horror stories and a steep learning curve to be successful there.  I've read about frozen funds that couldn't be recovered and also frozen goods stuck in their distribution centers and unable to be retrieved. 

I shop on both, and sometimes eBay.  For flashlights I have almost always bought on Aliexpress or from Neal.  Just a couple on Amazon when I found them at great prices.  I don't mind waiting for shipping from China but occasionally if something is on Amazon for just a little more money and I can have it shipped to me in a couple days or a week, I might buy there instead.  I did that recently with a Sofirn light that was on sale for $28 on Amazon, received it the next business day.  From Sofirn on Aliexpress or their website I could have gotten it for $23 and waited. (But then immediately I ordered an accessory for that light from them on Aliexpress because they did not stock it on Amazon US...they also don't list parts and different LED options as much as they do on Aliexpress). I did notice that Sofirn seems to sell most lights with included battery - probably easiest for the US market where many consumers still aren't familiar with lithium batteries, and good ones aren't available on Amazon usually.  Customer reviews can also be a bit harsh and unfair on Amazon, which affects algorithms and selling positions...there is much more freedom there with comments and reviews and people are not always fair, patient, or good natured (or smart....).  

 

Honestly with vendors like yourself, Simon, I would rather that you benefit as much as possible, so except for one light I always buy Convoy from you directly.  Amazon is ok sometimes but their fees and the fierce competition make it a tough place, and sometimes not the best prices at all.  I don't eBay very often, usually only tools, but if I know a good vendor is on eBay and has good prices (often better than Amazon for same items) then I'll shop there instead.  I'm surprised to hear eBay isn't welcoming China!  I see many items that ship directly from Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Korea, or the UK.  Maybe something new with politics...I hope not.

I'm sure you've probably seen this already, but lots of good information here shared by sellers...and a lot of frustration.  Sometimes good advice on how to do things right, fix problems, or avoid problems.  I browsed here just out of curiosity and was surprised at a lot of what I read.  There might be forums that are more helpful to Chinese sellers either shipping from home or stocking product in Amazon warehouses - I'm sure there must be a lot of different considerations compared to domestic sellers here.
