I already have 5x different S2+ lights and would like something that is a similar size that can take the existing 16mm MCPCB and 17mm drivers that I already have laying around. I’ll be doing either a CSLNM1 or SFT40 with smooth reflector for a mini “thrower”.
The wife also said I’m not allowed to buy any more lights this year, but a host doesn’t technically produce any light…So a host would be ideal rather than a complete light. And I have so many spare parts it would be a shame not to use them.
Try a *C8* or M1 if you want an 18650 light. Both are great lights. The C8 is a bit larger than the M1. If you want a small thrower the M1 is it. About the same size as the S2+ but with a larger head & deep reflector.
EDIT TO ADD… You will have to check & see if the 16mm MCPCB and 17mm drivers are a fit.
I can’t remember for sure off hand
Of the S series the S6 has the deepest reflector. It would be very interesting to put a CSLNM1 into one and see what throw numbers you could get. I'm curious how much farther it would throw than an S2+ with the same emitter.
I was going by the information in the guide I referenced above. Maybe the early ones had a deeper reflector and then they were changed to the shallower ones so Convoy could standardize on a single needed part?
