Gearbest is having a flash sale on the popular Convoy S2+ flashlight. Free shipping, but it's from Gearbest, so shipping is slow.

Got mine from mid December but I also paid for priority shipping with tracking. Light is pretty solid and seemed well made but the light output wasn't any better than the $5 eBay ones I've been knocking around for the past 5 years.

ouch! I ordered it because it is highly rated at BFL. I wonder if it is the particular config that gearbest is selling...

That's kind of how long it takes, over a month.

How are you powering the things? genuine panasonic cells?
Light output difference is more evident with distance, the cheap zoom lights can't beam through windows for instance.

I believe they are samsung cells, i scavenged them from an old laptop battery. Using the exact same cell in the convoy and in this ebay light [ebay.com]

The ebay light blows the convoy away in brightness and throw.

That's odd, if its a real xm-l both use the same, the 6 x 7135 shouldn't be that different, the max brightness(not gearbest) is the 8x 7135 version.

I guess after reading all the reviews, seeing all the hype, and reading how eBay $5 flashlights are junk I was expecting to be blown away by this light and I wasn't. It's a solid light and the price was decent just not leaps and bounds ahead of what I already had, makes me weary of spending any more money on these "nicer" lights like the blf one that pops up occasionally for twice this price. The only thing I've been reading that might be an improvement on the convoy I got was the reflector has an orange peel texture vs my china light has a smooth polished reflector which might give it an edge.
