Hi everyone

Hi everyone!

I’m a BLF reader and decided to create an account. I will order one convoy S2+ U63A 7135×8, and one skilhunt H03 RC.

Happy to be here!

Oscar

Welcome, that is a good start. I advise to look around for a code to get them at discount.

Hello there Winston.

Hope you like this place.

Rather than ordering the Convoy S2+ with the XP-L HI, I would recommend ordering this variant instead:
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Gray-Convoy-S2-with-luminus-SST20-Ra-95-...DTP-copper-plate-ar-coated-glass-lens/32969287656.html

It uses a very high CRI 4000k SST-20. It has excellent color rendition, among the best of LEDs, meaning everything looks lively and pleasant, and even saturated, like the afternoon sun.
It also uses a simple, but full featured UI with many options.

Thanks for joining the party, Winston81!

When I think of the name Winston, I think of the book 1984...

Hello Winston, Welcome to BLF

Buy the Convoy direct from Simon at the Convoy store that Blue noted.
S2+ and H03 are good solid choices for a new member, you have been reading. Wish I found his place before all the garbage I bought before joining.

Hey Winston.
Welcome to BLF.

Good choice!
Maybe you should consider wearing a Sofirn C01 on your key-ring.
$6.50 with BLF discount.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

You will really like both lights. I guarantee it.

I had seen this convoy
https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/desert-tan-S2-flashlight-with-XPL-HI-led-inside-and-ar-coated-glass-biscotti-firmware/330416_32820745681.html?spm=a219c.12010108.1000001.8.38ae5137IWnZIr&isOrigTitle=true

but then, is this the better option?

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Gray-Convoy-S2-with-luminus-SST20-Ra-95-...DTP-copper-plate-ar-coated-glass-lens/32969287656.html

For outdoor, for example.

And I like the sofirn C01 and Q8… Smile

Thanks

Oscar

@Winston81, in most cases, the SST-20 option is better than the XP-L HI, especially outside since it has much better color rendition(95CRI vs 70CRI).
