Good finished product. Great for single coil builds, due to 3rd air slot. price is right.
CONS
AFC ring loose. you will need different O-rings. A little thin
Great inexspensive RDA GF likes it. Looks good on her rainbow Vamo V5. AFC ring very loose. you will need different O-rings. Not sure on size yet. Try to up date in discussions after O-rings come in.

Great Compact bright light Low batter warning..
CONS
It can get a little hot
I purchased a few lights; 1 Convoy C8 SKU 1272100, 3 Convoy S2 SKU 1195010 ( 1 for son and another on the way for someone who saw mine) and on there way soon 2 UltraFire WF-501B 1*Cree XM-L2 T6 SKU 1626602 (one for my son). We each got a Nitecore I2/ SKU 1327201 with ac&dc cords and a few Panasonic 18650 3400mah. I also purchased a few; Beam Light Diffuser for LED 20-25mm flashlights / SKU 1140010 These work GREAT! I use it on the S2 all the time. Out in the tool shed and the woodshed I hang it by the wrist string on a nail or hook, turned on medium, it lights well enough for what I need. High is really bright and not really needed. We loose power quite often here in the Maine country side and we had 2 outages in the last week, one over 2 hours long one over 4 and both at night. Instead of all the oil lamps we normally use, we used mostly the S2 and the C8 for light this time for a good test. I hung the S2 with diffuser from the beam in the living room on med for 3+ hours. It got warm but didn’t get hot. It was also used around the house on H/M/L for over an hour. Discharge was about ¼ battery life (according to VamoV5). We used approximately just over ½ the battery life on the C8 in just over 4 hours. We used it a lot on high. I placed it in a mason jar pointing up at the white ceiling at the end of the kitchen table and we were able to read, play cards and so on. On high I think it was brighter than the 4 recessed lights in the dining room ceiling, and on medium brighter than the light over the table (3 small flame shaped 40w’s). I left the C8 in the jar pointing up on high for well over an hour and it wasn’t hot at all. Then a couple hours on medium. After that we played with it in the yard, switching through modes and seeing how much it really lit things up. Impressive! Actually out shines some car headlights. Lit up 4 deer grazing in front of my driveway sensor from 150 feet away like daylight. Eyes glowing so bright all frozen. Shut off light couldn’t see them at all. Turned back on within seconds and they were gone LOL. Overall I think both the C8&S2 are great lights. You could use either [b]one[/b] of these on a motor vehicle with no lights and drive home on the darkest of nights (we tried it). Camp on I cliff or a bluff somewhere, take the S2 hang it in your tent with the diffuser on it, turn on high or strobe, and people miles away will think they are seeing a UFO.. LMAO. Having 2 of these lights, I figure six batteries can go a long way. With the 12 volt/car charger it could go even longer. Add a solar charger and you would never be in the dark. We also purchased 2 Ultrafire Nylon Flashlight Holsters SKU 1409110. It works well with all 3 lights and clip rotates 360 degrees locking every 90. And three Nylon Holster SKU 1762902. These work well with S2. If your going to use the extra battery holder this will help hold it in: Protective Silicone Case for 18650 Battery SKU 1706403 [b]Cons/improvements [/b] The scallops on the C8 should be a 3/16 to ¼ inch longer /deeper. This would give more light when set down on lens/head, protect lens better, and make it a better defensive weapon/window breaker for GF in the car. Could do with out strobes and SOS.. As for the “glow in the dark” Well as with most silicone/plastic glow in the dark items they need light to charge, so don’t be expecting to find them glowing after they have been in your drawer, toolbox, bag, trunk, etc, for a day. Could do without them.

Post not fastened well, as for volt testing it can do in a pinch but I wouldn't count on it to be accurate under 4 volts.
great for testig ohms/resistants. This thing has a hard time measuring volts. Work on 3 out of 5 regular ego types, but others it just flashes 8's at you. It only works on the highest settings of a VV and goes all wonky blinking under 3.6 volts
