[Size Comparison] Convoy C8+ / Manker MC13

Before buying the Convoy C8+, I had searched all over the internet for an image showing the C8+ and Manker MC13 with 18650 tube beside eachother for a size comaprison.
I could only find a couple with the MC13 using the 18350 tube.

So now owning both, I figured Id just put these images out there for anyone like me who it might be relevant to in the future.

If I've posted a video clip, you can assume its under 30 seconds, and no volume is required.

Awesome thanks, which emitter is that c8+? osram? Does it throw visibly further? I was considering a c8+ shorty 18350 with sft40 instead of an mc13

Yes, its the Osram.
Its been a little while since comparing them side by side, but I remember they are very similar in reach, but the MC13 is more focuse and “stealthy.”
Meaning the spill is almost un noticeable, and you can shine a low to medium light pretty far without any spill “disturbing the neighbors.”
The MC13 also uses the C*U*LNM1 and so it has a larger hot spot.

I have no Idea how the C8+ performs with the SFT40.
My two C8’s have the white CSLNM1, and the Green version of it.
So I think thats the CSLNM1.TG (White) and CSLNM1.F1 (Green)

Im not an expert on any of this though, and was just hoping to provide a photo for size comparison

The ‘U’ refers to the size of the base, S=3030, U=4040.
The ‘N’ refers to the size of the emitting surface, N=1mm2, P=2mm2.

All things being equal the CSLNM1 and the CULNM1 both have the same emitting surface area so the hotspots will be the same size Smile

Again, I havent compared them side by side in a little while, but I remeber the MC13 having the larger hot spot.

With the MC13 you also get 5 levels of moonlight, of which some are incredibly low, which I find very useful and just cool to be able to shine such low lumens at such far distances.

You can really see whats “way over there” with as little light as possible, being as descrete as possible.

I find the C8+ is a little less “stealthy” that way.
