I’m going to order a Convoy S2+ AMC7135*6 XM-L2 T6-3B
I found Fasttech is selling for the best price ($14.16) vs Banggood ($15.99).
The difference isn’t even $2 but hey, this is BudgetLightForum
However, the pictures on Fasttech show a green switch cap while the one on Banggood has a black one.
I really don’t like the green switch but can I trust the pictures? Does Convoy indeed produce the black S2+ with 2 different colored switches or does one of the stores use pictures that ain’t correct?
I recently order S2-s from various webshops for my friends. Fasttech, banggood, gearbest. I got only black button versions since a year ago in grey and black S2-s. The last green buttoned version I got I ordered about two years ago. Also the lanyard holes different in black button version The older has one hole on the each side of the button and the hole edge is sharp and can damage the lanyard. The newer on has two holes next to each other and smooth chamfered hole edges.
I think there are upcoming clear and tan models. The clear should use the metal switch. With the tan I think they are trying to get a black metal switch, or it might go back to rubber.
I much prefer the rubber/silicone boot myself. As was said it is more waterproof (the metal does have a silicone gasket under the metal that makes is very water resistant), and I just like the feel better.
I didn’t know that… I’ve only purchased RED ones, to assemble for others. I prefer the rubber boots, as those are easily replaceable to customize a light, in addition to being more water-tight/dust-proof. Except for the pending Tusken-Raider edition; I hope that one has a black metal switch cover.
