New Convoy T2 - Remove mode memory?

I have a new Convoy T2 floating around somewhere in the US postal system and figured it couldn’t hurt to ask. Do anyone know if the mode memory on the latest version can be defeated by removing a component on the driver itself? Maybe an off time capacitor or something?

I believe this is the driver installed in the light:

It seems like Convoy may be making a programmable AA/14500 driver for the T2 in the future. As far as removing memory from the existing driver I wish I knew, I would have bought one already but I prefer low to high no memory for small lights like that.

I am also interested in this topic. Is there an easy way to disable memory mode?

Find the capacitor used for mode memory. Use a pencil to draw a line on the capacitor ‘s top to connect the leads with a conductive line of graphite.
For more info search for “pencil trick.”

You can also swap in a 17mm driver with whatever ui you prefer.

I was hoping for some assistance locating that, I’ll have to dig into it once I receive the light. It seems to have cleared customs and has been sitting at a distribution site for 3 weeks now.

I keep forgetting this takes a 17mm driver…
