On The Road M900, Convoy S2+
It came in a very nice cardboard box, well secured. The flashlight itself has an SS bezel and looks very premium. It costs twice as much as the other 2 competitors.
Came in a common (for Convoy), simple thin cardboard box and a bubble wrap. The flashlight itself feels well made and durable. It is the heaviest out of the bunch, also the most durable
It came in the same box as the Convoy. Generally, it looks very similar to Convoy, with a bit deeper knurling.
I think it will be a close battle between Convoy and Xanes. OTR, although it is the most expensive, I think it will perform the worst. It is my guess, I don’t know the results yet.
In my opinion Xanes looks the best. Xanes xt02 and OTR both look worse, but similarly, can’t announce the winner (Convoy is grey color, so looks better, but was scratched at the same level…maybe OTR was scratched the most). Although OTR was scratched the most, it looks the coolest after scratching. As I expected, SS bezel in OTR performed great, looks like new, and the head in OTR looks so much better than in Convoy and Xanes.
Well, this knife is very sharp and pointy, I was scratching with moderate force, but lenses look almost untouched, with only small, hard to see scratches. All flashlight’s lenses performed the same. You can see some scratches on Convoy’s lens, but all flashlights have the same scratches.
Have you ever been afraid of leaving your flashlight for a night in very cold conditions? I was. For this, I have a 14 hour, -25°C (-13°F) test in the refrigerator. All flashlights are in a closed plastic box, with some water (just 1-2 spoons, to imitate night moisture). With batteries, but turned off.
Now I know I can safely leave a flashlight outside during the night when sleeping in a forest (as I did before, but now at least I know it is safe)
Leaving your flashlight in a hot car, on the hottest summer day. It could be even 70°C (158°F) inside. For this test I’m gonna use my oven, set it to 70°C (due to lack of good equipment, the temperature varied from 65°C to 85°C so 149°F to 185°F) and leave all flashlight for 30 minutes. Without batteries.
All flashlights are working fine, but rubber switches in Convoy and Xanes make that creaking noise when pressing. Annoying. OTR doesn’t have this problem – good, because they advertise to have a good quality switch.
Now it’s time for an obvious must-be: waterproof test. But I should call it “waterproof+ test”. 48 hours in my fish tank, at a depth of 25 cm. With battery on, turned on. If not cold and hot, maybe just water will kill them. I’m guessing: Xanes will perform the best.
I am a bit surprised because none of the flashlights leaked. Not even a tiny bit. The reason is probably that they were submerged in shallow water, even they were submerged for a very long time.
I found no water inside. However, after approximately 2 hours I decided to turn them on and noticed some moisture behind the lens of the OTR M900’s lens. The OTR was the only flashlight that leaked. I am not sure when that actually happened: after the 48h immersion or during the pressure washer test. Anyway, this amount of water is not a big deal for these flashlights at all, considering all the tests I’ve done.
You can use any of these Xanes xt02 to lighten your fish tank for at least 48 hours. Flashlights don’t look good after 30 drops from 1m height, especially a bezel and a tailcap.
The OTR M900 turned off at the 7th drop from 2 meters. This was the second side-drop from the drop-test. Unscrewing and screwing the head back on helped, but it was still a single-brightness flashlight. The lanyard holes in OTR were annihilated as well. The Xanes XT02 started to show a problem with its threads. The Convoy flashlight was still screwing pretty well, as usual.
Apart from the obvious UI problems of the OTR, it still looked the best from all 3. The front of the flashlight looks almost untouched, thanks to the stainless steel bezel. A SS bezel really helps, as you can see. The tailcap doesn’t look that bad either, much better than the other 2.
A river drop test. I remembered from a while back that I once walked near a river and dropped my flashlight. That was a $70 flashlight with a IPX8 waterproofness. It stopped working after this happened because water got inside and damaged the light.
For this test I’d like to do the following: turn the flashlight on at max brightness and drop it into the river from about a ~ 3 m height. A nice hot flashlight into a cold river (10°C or 50°F).
