My takeaway from the last couple pages is that the Convoy 12 modegroup interface is the pinnacle of practical (non-fidget) modern flashlight interfaces.

It’s got it’s quirks but it’s pretty great. I have a few things I’d like to see improved, but they’re mostly just small personal preference things rather than deal breakers problems like with the e-switch UI.

12 groups with the rear clicky is excellent for handing to the wife and kids. Buy the most powerful one you can get in a reasonable size (21700 sizes are my favs) and set it to mode 8. 

 

I just ordered the S12 with three 519a R9080 emitters in it...cannot wait to see that color rendition compared to the Sofirn SP36 with LH351D in 5000k, though I suppose that color temp isn't apples to apples.

12 Groups or the copy of Biscotti has been refined through later iterations such as Bistro and it’s showing its age and unfortunately we are stuck with it as there’s no easy upgrade to the driver firmware anymore.

Simon, any updates on when we will be able to order the 519A’s? I’m super anxious waiting for it already.

This is what I've ordered, it doesn't say out of stock, but perhaps there will be a delay. For single emitters, I haven't seen anything:

Is that an L8 driver?

FYI, I just received eight new C8 glass lenses and all of them have the pink AR coat. If you are purchasing these individually, don’t expect them to have the new green AR coat.

If anyone in the USA needs these, PM me. I will send them to you for free.

Very generous of you Rayoui!

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

Also, last I checked, the FC40 Convoy uses is R9080, so the color rendering isn’t really worse or better than the B35AM.

Convoy advertises R9080 for FC40 currently

uh,FC40 R9050 ,not R9080

Simon, I’m wanting to build a small 450nm royal blue light and I think the T3 host and driver (complete light of course) will be perfect. Does the T3 use the same cut shape mcpcb as the T2? If so, could I buy a couple of spare mcpcb from you on that order?

Oh, the FC40 inside of Convoy lights is “only” R9050.

That does put sort of a different spin, interesting.

Maukka tested an early sample here (very green and R9 goes down to 42 on high)

Edit : zeroair tested a production sample here (much less green and higher R9, 76 kn high and above 80 in other modes)

How do the smXX5 bins compare with the smXX3 for the 519a? Do most of the neutral ones get picked out to fill the smXX3 bins, leaving mostly “extreme” green and red ones in the smXX5?

From the 5 samples I had there wasn’t much difference regarding duv, for the CCT they were a bit warmer :

Hi Simon,

Do you have any plans to make M1 host with different anodization colour options?

The M1 model will be phased out.
M21B becomes popular
