[OC] Two Convoy L7 review videos

Hi folks! I spend most of my time in r/flashlights, but thought a few of you might enjoy a couple looks at the new Convoy L7 flashlight. I want to give back to BLF for all the great info and group buys found here (a BLF group buy is how I obtained this light). Its serious fun, and an amazing deal for the output it musters.

In this video, I do a 4-way shootout with 3 other SBT90.2 lights: https://youtu.be/ZBF4uoYvVdk

A few redditors asked about the lights ergonomics, so I made this video as well: https://youtu.be/cMxgWVYSBIU

Hope prospective L7 / SBT90.2 buyers find these useful!

Great videos. Its amazing how close in characteristics the L7 was to the MF05. Also love your collection and the custom storage box. Well done.

Saw and commented on your Reddit post, I’m the one with the 4×18A and will attempt a beamshot comparison if I can.

Mine should be here today. Guess the batteries come out of its older brother the L6 so I can try it out Smile

(More batteries on the way anyway lol!)

Those will work, but they are max discharge 15A, and I remember Convoy suggesting 20A 26650 batteries. I use these:

VapCell battery INR26650 5300mah 20A G53 19.08Wh 3.7V rechargeable 26650 lithium batteries for flashlight https://a.aliexpress.com/_mqKnPQr

At 20A the light should run brighter, but there wouldn’t be a huge difference
