Nichia 219C / 12-group (55-mode) / 468LM
Just ordered this Convoy S2+ which has Nichia 219C / 12-group (55-mode) / 468LM / 18650. Is it just me, or does the 468 max LM seem low? I would think nearly any driver & LED combo would result in a brighter light than that. Has anyone tried this out? I ordered the 4000 K as a fairly close work...indoor or around the house outside...kind of light. Hoping for a natural light tone. Also...with a low brightness and 18650 this should have long runtimes but I can’t find any data on that spec. Help?

There are loads of Convoy S2+ flashlights.

Either use the "Discussion" feature on it's page, or include the sku # so we know exactly which one you're talking about.

+1 details
Pic 4 says it has 4*7135 chips which is 1400mA. Half of what the brightest (8*7135) ones use. The Nichia 219C is also less efficient than most Cree and some other LEDs.I think 468lm sounds about right.

An honest 468lm is still very bright, and Convoy specs are pretty accurate though.

You can try Googling "Convoy S2+ 468lm review" (without the quote marks) to see if it's been reviewed on one of the flashlight forums. Very good, accurate info there.

Btw, to link an sku #, just type skuxxxxxxx (no spaces) and it will be linked automatically.

SKU 9687365

I forgot to mention that runtimes will be longer with less lm, and the battery capacity can make a difference too. Avoid the super cheap Chinese batts like Ultrafire etc, and any batts with stripes on them like those below. vv

If you use it mostly for close up things, you'll probably use one of the lower modes and only rarely need high mode.

Post back here with your opinion when you get it. And good luck with it. :)
