BLF A6 plus Convoy Led Switch

I installed the Convoy led switch and all hell broke loose. Memory for light intensity mode , memory for last setting recall and blinker modes from half presses don’t function. I installed back the original and everything is fine. Looks like those Convoy led switches are only for certain flashlights then?

Most drivers will require you to add a bleeder resistor when you add a backlit tailswitch, otherwise the driver never realises the light gas been turned off as there is current flowing.

Thank you! you saved me countless hours of searching. :slight_smile: Go Canucks!!

This is what you need for the blf lights

Hey many thanks! I’ve ordered two. :slight_smile:

Sorry forgot to mention that the illuminated tail cap spring has more resistance so tou lose a couple hundred lumens.
You can solder on a 22g wire to improve the switch. There are a few threads about this.
I noticed even the convoy s2 with sst40 comes with a jumper wire soldered into the spring from the factory now

If you decide to cancel you can login to your banggood account and cancel while the order is still processing.

Great I’ll try it out! :slight_smile:

Regarding the Convoy S2+ SST40 (4-mode driver), I have tested the Convoy lighted tailswitch and it works properly (can change modes).

I tried comparing lux (ceiling bounce) of the S2+ SST40 with the stock spring-bypassed tailswitch, and using a non-spring-bypassed Convoy lighted tailswitch and there is nearly no difference in lux (per my tail current measurement, the S2+ SST40 uses only about 4.5 Amps max (Convoy spec indicates “5 Amp” max), so the spring-bypass probably doesn’t affect too much?
