Convoy T3? What new goodies does Simon have in store?

Has anyone seen this listing on the Convoy Store? Comes in colors, added machine work, assume 14500/AA. Wonder what driver? Almost wish I had seen this before my last T2 order.

Lights not yet produced always get that kind of price… I think it is just a store placeholder for a new product.

I’m betting it’s an AA/14500 with Anduril.

I’ve always admired that about Simon – he just does stuff, he doesn’t prattle on about it for six months stoking enthusiasm and then deliver some watered down, ridiculously compromised Frankenlight.

Good on ya, Simon. Put me down for a couple.

Tumbleweed, I could not agree more… He does designs he wants to see and usually what we happen to want to see. I am sure I will have at least one of them in blue. Looks to be a mechanical switch, I doubt it will be Anduril.

I hope he does these like the colored C8s, but with emitters always matching the body color. Purple-UV, blue-blue, etc. I’ll definitely buy every one of them if he does.

Simon really has been on Fire, this past year. Biscotti was a massive step, a few years back.

Now he seems determined to make Convoy a mainstream company!!

Hoping for 14500, looking at the lanyard holes, it looks big like 14500. But I could be wrong.

Why Already bought 6 T2’S. Ready for T3

Why does FB Group always have more info over BLF?

Twisty? Maybe. The way the head screws on, looks kinda funky.

Nop, otherwise it would be hard configuring it. It is a tailswitch light!

I wish there will be an orange one (the one in the photo seems a mix of golden and orange, not like the C8), but if not, I’ll get some blue Wink

Me neither Wink

I was just basing on the information provided above, talking about being a driver with 12 group modes.
Also, the design is similar to the other lights from Convoy with tailswitch (look at the tailcap).

I’ll also be looking for more information about this Wink

I don’t do Facebook either. Eager for more info/specs. If it’s usual Convoy pricing I’d buy one or two for sure. I hope the colors shown are preproduction and the goldish one will turn out to be orange.

Hank Wang supposedly hinted at a 14500 light on reddit a couple months ago. Some interesting sub 18650 lights coming out lately.

I feel sorry for people who don't have a hobby or interest to escape to.

Forgive me for living under a rock but what is a q2 mode driver?

I really like Biscotti for the most part. It is quick to use and has some decent mode groups. I’d like a few more group options or an easy way to customize a group, but it really is the best fit for my needs out of what I can readily purchase. (I still don’t like electronic switches.)

the 12 mode mechanical click driver is superior to Anduril

I mistyped, it should have said 12 mode driver.

I hope they bore the light just a tad more, and extend the positive contact a bit more. Can’t use flat top 14500 with my old T2, and couldn’t get my protected keeppower to fit

If you feel like elaborating, I would be interested in hearing why. I got the 4 group driver on my C8+ because I heard there could be a bug on the 12 mode. What makes the 12 mode driver so good?

In a PM Simon did confirm that the tube is slightly larger bore.

I wouldn’t mind the 4 mode driver for this light but it still has memory mode that I don’t like on small lights like this.

Yeah, I am 12mode-only anymore due to the ability to disable mode memory.
