CONVOY M21C XHP70.2 (2020) REVIEW
The Convoy M21C XHP70.2 (M21CXHP702) released in 2020. It uses Cree XHP70.2 LED, SMO reflector and 1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery. The powerful emitter in this flashlight provides up to 4000 lm output, 40000 cd intensity, and a beam distance of 400 m.
This light has 4 modes of lighting. The memory function is a nice feature, the light will remember the last used mode.
The emitter of M21C XHP70.2 manufactured by Cree, a US-based LED manufacturing company. The M21C XHP70.2 has a smooth reflector. The properly focused smooth reflector gives you a more cohesive hotspot and therefore throws better. It has an AR coated lens.
The throw is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. The candela per lumen (cd/lm) ratio can be used to determine if a flashlight has a spot or flood type beam. Well-focused spot beams can be over 100 cd/lm, tactical flashlights are typically between 20-100 cd/lm, and work lights are less than 10 cd/lm.
The M21C XHP70.2 has mode memory. Mode memory means that the light will remember the mode you were using when the light was last turned off, and when you turn it on again.
The M21C XHP70.2 cannot charge batteries directly. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. This flashlight has a built-in low voltage protection (LVP) to prevent damage to the cell from over-discharge, so protected cells are not necessary. The built-in thermal control automatically adjusts brightness output to prevent overheating.
The performance of the Convoy M21C XHP70.2 flashlight is measured according to the ANSI / NEMA FL1 Standard 30 seconds after switching the light on. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
The specifications above are based on the official data published by the manufacturer, but we also take user reviews into consideration. If you found an error or something lacking in the specifications above for the Convoy M21C XHP70.2, then don’t hesite and signal the problem to us.
The Convoy M21C arrives in a sturdy, nondescript cardboard box. A small label on the side allows you to identify the model of the flashlight and the color of the LED.
A thick layer of packaging foam blocks the flashlight inside the package, preventing its movements. There is no accessory and no user manual.
The Convoy M21C is a compact and powerful shooting torch. Powered by a single 21700 cell, it produces a well focused but not excessively narrow beam. The color of the model seen in this review is Neutral, 5000K. In the hand it is comfortable, well balanced. The switch is easily operated.
The optical part is made up of a single SST40 LED capable of delivering approximately 2000 real OTF lumens to the Turbo (on paper 2300 lumens are declared for the 6500K version).
The parabola is smooth, mirror polished and quite deep. In the center, the small SST40 is well centered thanks to a white central unit. The bezel is made of stainless steel, particularly thick.
The anodizing is well done, opaque and smooth. The knurling on the central body is made with a series of small horizontal millings parallel to each other. The presence of vertical grooves further improves grip.
The tail is not flat but with a little attention it is still possible to use the flashlight in tailstanding. Two large holes allow you to attach laynard, paracord or small carabiners.
The switch in the queue has a double stroke: pressed halfway it allows the variation of the levels, while pressed to the bottom it turns off or turns on the flashlight. Thanks to the “U” shape of the tailcap, the switch is easily detectable even when wearing thick gloves.
There is no charging port. The impermeability to liquids is given as IPX-8.
The threads are anodized only on the tailcap side and physical lockout of the interface is allowed. Electronic lockout, on the other hand, appears to be unavailable.
Both at the negative and positive pole we find a golden spring. There are therefore no particular problems for the use of long cells.
The interface is very simple, perhaps too simple! XD
From torch off:
• With a total pressure of the switch the torch turns on the last used mode (Memory Mode)
• No function for partial pressure of the switch when the torch is off. I wish I had maybe a Momentary On.
From flashlight on:
• A quick partial press will move to the next output level.
• With a prolonged partial pressure the Momentary Off will be activated, ie the light will go out until the switch is released.
• With a total pressure of the switch until the “click”, the torch will turn off
There is no shortcut for direct access to the Turbo or the Low level. There are also no special levels. Simple simple interface, all roast and no smoke !!
Purely shooting beam and a Turbo power of over 2000 OTF lumens allow the Convoy M21C to go far. Over 600 meters of theoretical shooting with 96000cd, translate into reality in illuminating well up to 200-250m.
The beam is wide, with a very bright and well focused central spot, but not excessively narrow. The crown around the spot is bright, the spill can be used to see well in the immediate vicinity. The neutral tint, 5000K, tends to warmer colors on the low levels. In general it is uniform throughout the beam.
