Nevermind, its case sensitive only for that one. Any chance you have a code for the U6-3A, I want a more neutral color?

not sure, but plenty of people don't like gearbest. i used my older convoy s2+ on halloween and my BIL lost his car keys. I gave him the flashlight to go searching for his keys and he loved the flashlight so i gave it to him, felt bad he never found the keys. so I'm ordering another today.

i've had great luck with gearbest. just ordered this light as a gift plus other stuff. should be getting it all soon. flip side to that is, i've never ordered anything expensive.

Bad CRI. 8x 7135 will make your flashlight very hot and inefficient. Do not buy this unless you plan to mod it.

3x7135 is perfect. I noticed very little difference in brightness and I use a 18350 so it's really small. Works great. Buy that driver and a nichia 219b or 219c. You will never use a low cri light for close range ever again.

Light is logmatic so you'll see little difference between my setup (400 lumens and 1000 lumens looks slightly brighter, needs 1600 to be seen as twice as bright).

If you try with 3x 7135 I bet the only difference you'll note is that the modes don't get scorching hot. Medium and high got hit easily on my 3/5 mode convoy.
