Does the amp rating of a 18650 or 21700 matter as much as with vaping with the S21A i just ordered?



Yes, I dont know how many amps this flashlight pulls on high but i would not be surprised if it was in the region of 10-15 amps.

I use a Samsung 40T flat top in mine.

Best to be safe than sorry.

Why bother? Convoy S2x series are very good already. But, there are no "authentic" Convoys, so read reviews.

Why bother? do you even own a Convoy ? I have many and yes they are genuine and if you ask Simon from the convoy store over at the 40 thieves he will custom make or upgrade any Convoy flashlight you desire. The real Question is Why do I bother ?

Simon is well known at BLF. Every single Convoy product I've ever had, (including those given as gifts, and ones of my own that I've had to replace because people wanted one NOW, as well as those I've modded for people ) probably close to 100 in all have been perfect.

S1's SII's, C8's of various generations,L6's, all at least equal to if not better than lights costing much more.

Whats more, they are easy to mod/upgrade, and there is a large selection of spare, and compatible parts available.

There are countless Convoy clones, some costing more,but none come close in quality.
