Sanchan, go to “Convoy flashlight Store” on Ali Express. In this Store, go to “Accessories 1” section, you will find magnets for S series flashlights, selling at about US$1 each. If you buy during the upcoming 11/11, they will be even cheaper.

The magnet can be used for C8 flashlight; therefore, it should be OK on your S11.

Hi. Sir, I created this post as you all are experts in BFLights. The S2+ Magnet has a diameter of 20mm(which I already tried), whereas the Magnets in the Images perfectly fit to a S11 which has a diameter of 32.5mm. Though not everyone use these magnets for S11, please let know if anyone uses these and where to purchase from.

As mentioned by others, try checking with Simon (Convoy’s owner) in the official Convoy AliExpress store to ask if he has magnets that fit the Convoy S11.

If not, would suggest to measure the inner and outer diameter of the tailcap portion where a magnetic ring will fit reasonably well.

Let’s say it’s 32.5mm outer diameter and (for example) 16mm inner diameter. Can try to search for ring magnets that have “32 (OD) x 16 (ID) x (1.5mm [thickness] ) ring magnets”, something like that. Sometimes those exact dimensions may not be available or much more expensive, so search for another next size, hopefully can find some store that carry those..

The Convoy S11 uses a 26650 battery, so I think a stronger beefier magnet may be needed (I’m not sure if gluing to the tailcap would be strong enough to hold the S11 flashlight in a horizontal position).

Hi d+t_a,

Thank you for the answer.

1) I asked Simon. He is clueless.
2) Measured the Diameter / Height of the S11 cap. 27.5mm / 5.5mm
3) No magnet of exact size is available. The best nearby Magnet measures 25mm/20mm/5mm OD/ID/Height. The Shipping for it is too high to our country – 10 times more than the cost of the Magnets. If any of you search ’25×5-20mm’ keyword, there are only three suppliers on AliExpress. AliExpress’s father AliBaba has many suppliers but only whole sellers. ‘Convoy Man’ from Thailand on Youtube uses S11 magnets of exact dimensions but would not tell where to purchase from nor would sell it.

Anyway thank you all.

Maybe this one might fit, but it’s a “ferrite” magnet instead of “neodymium”, so may not be strong enough..

27 × 17 × 3mm magnet:

This store has the “25×5-20mm” magnet, sold in 3pcs, it lists free shipping to my country:
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005001845532751.html

Doing a search for “25×5-20mm” in AliExpress turns up several stores:

Although I understand that if the AliExpress store does not ship to one’s country, then the search listing will not show up.
(I found this out before, when I found many mentions of a battery store in AliExpress that is reasonably priced and many BLF members have attested that they sell genuine batteries — but when I search that store, there are NO batteries listed. Turns out that store does not ship batteries to my country, and thus No batteries get listed when I browse their store — but when I tried changing the “country” setting for AliExpress, then those batteries finally showed up ; except they do not ship to my country.)

Hi d_t_a,

Sorry for trouble. International Shipping cost are too high. Only because of Govt support and Volume, the Chinese Shippers and even other International shippers having offices in Mainland China and/or it’s outer regions, can afford to ship even a $1 item for free. Ferrite Magnets are useless for heavy load and longevity. Hope to get proper magnets at reasonable prices in future. Thank You.
