Help - need a switch for a Convoy S2

My Convoy S2 has gone all flickery…. its the switch. As the tailcap from a Jaxman light fits and doesn’t flicker.

Can anyone help me buy a replacement that will fit. The switch is different to the S2+ or the one listed on the Convoy site for the S2.

The PCB is approx 20mm


From the Convoy store, this looks to be most similar, but I don’t want to buy it if it won’t work.

Any thoughts? Thanks.

Before thinking about getting a replacement, first tighten the switch retaining ring!

If it still flickers, try removing the Jaxman switch from its tailcap and swap it into the S2 tailcap, If it still flickers, the problem is somewhere else. If that fixes it, you might need a new switch. I'm not sure which switch to get and would wait for a more knowledgeable forum member to chime in.
