2x21700s version of the Convoy L6

Hi,

What 2×21700 light is equivalent to the 2×26650 Convoy L6, in your opinion?

Sp70 is 26650, and not as mod friendly.
Do you really need 21700 instead of 26650?

I don’t know such a light with 2* 21700

Only problem then.
Is you back to the skinny torch body again.

A few of us go to the 26650
solely for a better gripping/Holding body.
Much better torches to have in hand long term.

Thanks guys for the input!

The 21700 approach is because it appears to be the new standard, and that it’s smaller, while offering almost the same capacity as the 26650. The size also makes it easier to find charger, and to charge two cells simultaneously. As far as I know, there’s only the 2×18650 version, but no brand has made the 2×21700 one.

Wait… the L6? Isn’t that 26650, not 18650?

If you’re Hell-bent on using 21s instead of 26es, a sleeve (or tissue-wrap) would keep them in-place fine.

Even rubberbands would work, as some lights come with them to use 18s instead of 26es.

I thought of it as another alternative. I just wish to know if any brand has made such a light.

21700 batteries haven’t been available on the market long enough already. There is no dedicated 2y 21700 flashlight as well as no 4× 21700 one. 26650 are good, though. The Convoy L6 might be long enough to use two 21700 in series.

Isn’t the M3 a straight upgrade over the L6 already? Same performance with only one battery?

I wouldn’t call it an upgrade, just another new type of light.
If it were an upgraded version, it would be a shorty L6, with lighted sideswitch and possibly slightly tuned aesthethics

Maxtoch X Pro is 2×21700 but it’s a thrower not anything like the beam of L6.

Flooders are a dime a dozen now so they dont need to be the traditional plunger format really.

Thanks guys for your replies!

Between the L2 and L6, I prefer the L6 more. I guess there will be a time when I buy throwers for fun, just not now.

Dimension wise, I like the size of the L2, and L6, so it’s a preference in my opinion.

Battery wise, 21700 capacity is almost as high as that of 26650, while being smaller. This is why I aim for 21700 lighta, although it’s not that popular yet.

I have looked at the Maxtoch. As you mentioned, it is a thrower. Also, its price is far higher than that of the L6, so I can’t really justify buying it. However, if Maxtoch quality is higher than that of Convoy, I’m absolutely willing to consider it again.

Thanks again guys! Let me know what you think.
