Too many lights...
There are like 10+ different prices for the Convoy S2 and S3 lights... What are the differences?

The emitters and drivers are different. There are choices of emitter flux bin from T4 to U2 (U2 being the brightest) and color bin from warm to neutral to cool white.

Drivers range from 1050mA output to 2800mA output. The higher the output the more light (brighter) you get, at the expense of battery run time.
All questions and comments are welcome. We are here to help.

The choices are great, it's nice to see a good store carry a selection of fairly customizable lights like these. It was nice to see some warmer tint options but would love to see a more moderate warm tint in there as well.
I think most people would like 4c (4c is ideal but 3c would be a good if 4c unavailable) and the 5c, the 7c is far too orange.

The variety of choice is what drew me to the Convoy line in the first place. It seems to be one of the few budget lights that offers both sensible modes (no blinkies), great tint options (from efficient cool to nice and warm) and a nice selection of driver currents (trading brightness for heat and battery life.

If anything I'd like to see more variants, with maybe some explanation of the difference between the models (for new buyers/non flash-a-holics).
