Convoy C8+ 18650 Powered Thrower with Biscotti Flashlight Review
There’s a new seller in town! The US-based store MohrLumens.com has opened and is selling the likes of Convoy, Lumintop, and Sofirn lights. The benefit of course, is that the items are shipping from the US, so you’re likely to get your items much quicker than from other (even official) channels. MohrLumens.com sent the Convoy C8+ for a bit of testing, and I’m hopeful that many more Convoy reviews are on tap! This Convoy C8+ is a 18650 thrower with Biscotti. Read on for more!
Note that this light was damaged in shipping. Big ol chunk in the side of the package straight through the box and straight into the box. Like some USPS employee smashed the package under a piece of equipment or whatever. MohrLumens.com will treat you right if this happens to you (which is pretty unlikely).
Official Specs and Features
Here’s a link to the official product page.
There are a ton of versions of the C8+. There’s a black body (seen here) and a tan body. There are many emitter options, too. The Luminus SST-20 5000K is the version I have in for testing. Also options are Cree XP-L HI, Luminus SST-40, Osram KW CSLNM1.TG, Nichia 219c, and Osram KP CSLNM1.F1. There are plenty of choices!
The version as tested is going for $19.95 at MohrLumens.com. You can get yours here.
This is a great little thrower, and probably the very least money you can spent to get 500+ meters of throw! When speaking with MohrLumens about emitter options, I mentioned Cree XP-L HI being my favorite but I have to say I really love this SST-20. It’s neutral without being yellow, but still not muddy. A bit hard to describe. The light handles well and the build quality is great, and again, this light is under twenty dollars!

- Measurement disclaimer: I am an amateur flashlight reviewer. I don’t have $10,000 or even $1,000 worth of testing equipment. I test output and such in PVC tubes!! Please consider claims within 10% of what I measure to be perfectly reasonable (accurate, even).
