I’ve had a BD06 for some time and find that it’s a solid, quality light. It may not be the most impressive in output (about 1000 lumens) but with a quality 26650, it’ll run for a looooooong time. Mine had the upgraded driver and I had it set up in a few different ways. It’s a nice feature. The charging system snaps over the switch and works fine. I never measured it, but it’ll do the trick, It will take some time to fully charge a 26650 though. The switch is pretty beefy and takes a bit of force to engage. Overall it’s a nice value.
I have one each of the Convoy BD01, BD04 and BD06 lights. They’re nice lights, built to Convoy’s usual good quality, all with Biscotti firmware and all available with your choice of LED colour temperature.
The only snag is that USB charging requires a special adaptor that snaps on over the switch - if you lose the adaptor, you can’t charge the light.
maybe i could to a full test of the lights that i have and charging sources i have. now you have sparked my thoughts in doing a full light charging & charger test comparison review when i can get the time to run some more tests. I have done some as mentioned above by Hank. Some of the lights i have tested were the Klarus G20, Blitzwolf BL-LT5, Zanflare T1, Olight S1R, S2R, Nitecore HC60, DX80, and others. I did charge voltage & amp tests using various wall chargers, car 12 volt chargers, off-grid power banks, portable solar chargers, power banks, and others.
I’ve been beating on the same ’02 since I got it, and it’s still going strong. Saw it was “cheap”, ordered a bunch as “disposables”, yet the first one is still chugging away just fine. I wouldn’t dismiss it as low quality or anything. Sure, it doesn’t have a fancy emitter and everything’s on one PCB, but it still… works.
Yeah, it’s an OK light. But it has that cheap feeling to it.
Hey, for the 8bux or so that I got mine for, you hear me complaining?
No. I just say that not everyone would be happy with it. Myself I like it as well. And I use it a lot.
