Review: Convoy S21E 519A (21700, 1150 lumens, USB-C)

Review of the Convoy S21E, with Nichia 519A emitter – a compact 21700 tube light, with side e-switch, and USB-C charging.
Is it a worthy successor to the S2+ ? Or have its chances been dented? Read on for the full review:

Nice review, thank you.

I’ve been looking at those on AE, and thinking that at that price, how can I avoid buying one (or more)? Reviews like this aren’t helping.

I am easily deterred from buying by the 10-click locking, and the tall, unprotected button. It seems to me that it’s unwearable in a pocket.

My IF25A and D4 have trained me to twist the tail cap for lock out, so I’m not too worried about that. I love Andúril, but I don’t blame Simon for being skeptical. I think Andúril 2 in muggle mode is perfectly acceptable for anybody, but I can see the arguments against it.

Since it’s shorter than an S2+, and only a slightly chonkier, it seems like a perfect pocket carry to me.
