    I bought one ~5 years ago and still going strong.

    Been using 18650 that I've harvested from old power tool batteries.

  • +7

    That looks like a Hekkan good deal.

    This convoy is a great introduction to modern good torches, and this is a great price. If you still have an old MagLite in a drawer, this is what you want

  • +1

    I need two tho

  • Ordered, now need to look for 18650 batteries.

    • and charger

      • +2

        Haha…. Have the Liitokala 500 charger already :)

    • now need to look for 18650 batteries

      Where do we buy 18650 batteries these days?

      • My first go to is JayCar but if anybody has better recommendation with cheaper prices most welcomed

      • +2
        • Another vote for lanplus, i have ordered heaps from there (or on their ebay)

      • Tinkertechau seems to be reasonably priced, delivery is cheap, seems to have been around for a while

        • +1 for TinkerTech. Very happy with my purchases from them

        I’ve had good experiences ordering 18650 cells fro Tech Around You. Prices were good and they were posted very quickly.

        https://www.techaroundyou.com/

        I’ve also had good experiences buying batteries and chargers fro LANplus. Their prices for 18650 cells haven’t been as good as Tech Around You when I’ve checked in the past.

        https://www.lanplus.com.au/

      Fasttech, without question. Not only cheap, but they actually test them and tell you the REAL capacity of their batteries.

    • +2

      The Samsung 30q battery sold on ebay comes highly recommended.

    • +3

      supersports600 (NSW) and techaroundyou (VIC) were my go to for cheap Samsung 30Q, Sony VTC6 or Sanyo NCR18650GA but eBay cracked down on li-ion cells.

      techaroundyou.com still sell direct from their website. You used to be able to get 18650s for about $8 each when ordering two or more but that bulk discount seems to have gone.

      vapoureyes.com.au is good for Molicel 18650 and 21700. They're in South Australia.

      Vape shops will have 18650s if you're in a pinch. They're probably around $15 each though.

      https://vapemirrin.com.au/ has possibly the last two Nitecore F1 single slot powerbanks/chargers in Australia. I have one and reviewed an XTAR SC1 Plus recently. XTAR PB2S is a decent 18650/21700 charger/powerbank. Vapcell S4 Plus is a nice 4 slot charger (AE).

      • Thanks, the following seems to be the cheapest around at the moment including shipping:

        https://www.tinkertechau.com.au/products/samsung-30q

        But one of the reviews says the batteries came wkfh a sticker instead of Samsung imprinted on them. Is that normal?

        • +1

          I haven't bought from tinkertechau, some torch enthusiasts have, but some vape shops and their suppliers print labels like "3.7V 18650 3000mAh" and put that on the side of a cell to help indicate the cell type and capacity. They might then put them in a small pink cardboard box with 30Q on the side. It may be a little easier than handling raw cells. Not sure if it's some legal requirement to indicate the capacity for postage…

        • +1

          Late reply but I have bought some Samsung 21700 batteries from tinkertech before, the stickers are over the top of the manufacturer printed numbers/serial. I thought they may have been fakes too when I got my batteries, peeled back the sticker to see the normal printed letters and numbers underneath, on the wrapper.
          I tested the capacity of the batteries I got and they were all within the genuine cell specs.
          tinkertech is a legit Australian business.

    nice price so i grabbed one, went with 5000K

  • +3

    Wuben C3 with battery and USB-C port is discounted too, US$17

  • What’s the max brightness?

  • Thanks for sharing as I'm in need of a one…this seems like a good one for the reduce price point therefore went for it.

  • +5

    I'd recommend the 4000k over all the other options.

    All options have a green tint to the light on all modes except max brightness but the 4000k has the benefit of being high CRI which renders colors a lot nicer compared to 5000k and 6500k. You'll notice a big difference on colors with red in them such as wood or skin tones.

  • ordered one thks to add to my collection around sheds on the farm

  • I got a black SST-20 2700k not long ago. Previous to this I had a couple of XML2 versions. 2700K is great if you like the idea of an incandescent beam with LED efficiency. Only downside of the SST-20 is the narrow hotspot compared to larger LEDs. This can be fixed with TIR (total internal reflection) lenses from the official Convoy store on Aliexpress.

  • I've got 2 of these already, brought another one. They have kept me alive over the years during early morning bicycle trips. Mine only lasts one or two hours when I turn them on full power. There are so many different models with different LEDs & ROMs, all under the same name so it's hard to compare.

  • No order confirmation email after purchase?

    • Mine went to the junk folder, you might have to check there

  • I have been looking for a torch for the house / beneath the house, so this seems like great timing.

    Can anyone recommend a charger? I have a simplistic Panasonic one that came with some Eneloops but I assume that's not going to work.

    I was thinking of picking up:

    Thanks guys.

  • These particular torches are one of the best.

  • Has anyone reviewed a shipping notification yet?

    • No shipping notification here yet.

      • I sent Hekka an email query after posting the above comment, but they haven't replied yet.

        • I emailed them earlier in the week and just got this reply.

          Dear Valued Customer,

          Thank you for your support.
          We wish to apologize for any inconvenience.
          Our website has been upgraded and migrated to the new website ( https://hekka.com)resulting in you can't see historical orders.
          In order to resolve this issue, please use your email login to the old website: us.hekka.com , then enter my order page to view the historical order information directly

          In doing this I can see my order has been shipped.

          • @thorpef1: Their "old" website shows mine is in Australia, but the Australia Post tracking number shows that they have only received paperwork so far.

            • +1

              @pjetson: Mine has now entered the Australia Post system, nearly a week after Hekka said it was in Australia.

  • +3

    Received mine today.

    • Second that, received both today. Tested, amazed at the performance for such its size. Thanks al for the suggestions and help 🙏

    • Received mine today as well.

      Going to buy more if this deal gets reposted

        • Issues with the code, no way it ran out in less than 2 hour?

          • @cwongtech: No idea, I haven't tested. Only 100 units, so maybe gone?

  • got mine today as well looks good

  • +1

    light beam too narrow for my taste.
