  • Sorta nice Convoy L4

    Impression:slightly disappointed;

    Very well made, fit and finish are excellent. O-rings (everywhere) are lubed as are the threads. Very bright cool white tint but not bluish at all. Tailcap switch for on/off, side switch changes modes which start on high and go down. Double click for strobe. Lens is glass but not anti-reflective.

    Same size and performance as a C8 but it has the side switch. The beam seems to be about the same as a C8 also. Mine only measured 1.8A at the tailcap so I'm a little disappointed and it might have been brighter with more current. It should throw some light out to about 125m or a little more.

    Ran it on high with a freshly charged cell for about 5 minutes and it only got a little warm. Not hot at all. Protected cells fit with no problem.

    It would be much nicer if you could turn it on/off with the side switch so you wouldn't have to change your grip or use 2 hands. It has memory and will remember the last mode used, but not strobe, which is a good thing.

    The tactical tailcap helps with gripping it but does little to keep it from rolling on an unlevel surface. It doesn't tailstand very well either.

    Not bad, but you can get a C8 with identical performance (but no side switch) for $10 ~ $12 cheaper.
