The Convoy 3X21E 21700 flashlight is a robust, high-performance lighting tool designed for enthusiasts and professionals who require powerful illumination and reliable construction. With its advanced features, durable build, and impressive output, this flashlight stands out in the crowded market of high-performance flashlights. This review delves into the detailed specifications and features of the Convoy 3X21E, highlighting why it is an excellent choice for demanding users.

The Convoy 3X21E is built with a high-quality aluminum alloy body, providing a solid and durable structure that can withstand harsh conditions. The stainless steel bezel adds to its robustness, ensuring that the flashlight can endure impacts and rough handling without compromising its integrity. The head structure is integrated, which is the best design for conducting heat efficiently. However, it's important to note that while this design allows for fast heat transfer, it does not equate to fast heat dissipation, which depends on the surface area of the flashlight.

The flashlight features a 57mm diameter LED MCPCB (metal core printed circuit board) made of copper, with a DTP (Direct Thermal Path) thermally conductive structure. This construction ensures efficient heat management, crucial for maintaining the performance and longevity of the high-powered LEDs. The use of 3.0 W/(m·K) thermal grease below the MCPCB further enhances heat conduction.

The Convoy 3X21E utilizes three Nichia 519A R9080 LEDs, known for their high color rendering index (CRI) and efficiency. These LEDs are paired with a unique lens system comprising three 10-degree bead lenses and one AR-coated glass lens. This combination ensures a focused and intense beam, ideal for various lighting needs.

The flashlight is powered by three 21700 lithium batteries (not included), specifically INR or IMR types capable of bearing currents of 20A or more. This power setup allows the Convoy 3X21E to achieve a maximum output of 12,000 lumens, providing intense illumination for a range of applications. The illumination distance is estimated to be less than 100 meters, making it suitable for close to mid-range lighting tasks.

The electronic switch located on the side of the head is user-friendly, but it does draw a standby current. To avoid battery drain, it is recommended to loosen the tail of the flashlight if it won't be used for over a week. The tail features three nickel-plated phosphor copper springs, each capable of handling a 20A current, ensuring reliable power transmission.

The Convoy 3X21E is equipped with a 5V 3A Type-C charging port, allowing for convenient and fast recharging. The driver output is managed by a FET with a maximum current output of 54A, and the driver efficiency is over 85%, ensuring optimal performance and energy use.

The flashlight offers multiple operational modes and features to suit various needs:

Standard Operation: Clicking the button turns on the flashlight at the last used brightness level. Pressing the button allows for brightness ramping up; releasing and pressing again ramps the brightness down.

Moonlight Mode: With the flashlight off, a single press activates the moonlight mode, which is not remembered in the last brightness setting.

Turbo Mode: Double-clicking the button activates the turbo mode at 100% brightness.

Strobe Mode: Triple-clicking the button activates the strobe mode.

Tactical Mode: Four clicks from the off position activate the tactical mode at 100% brightness. Four more clicks exit this mode.

Voltage Detection: Five clicks from the off position activate voltage detection, indicated by flashes.

Mode Switching: Six clicks switch the flashlight from normal ramping mode to a 4-mode setting (1%-10%-40%-100%). Lock Mode: Ten clicks activate the lock mode, preventing accidental operation. Another ten clicks unlock the flashlight. The Convoy 3X21E includes low voltage protection and temperature control functions. As the temperature rises, the current will gradually decrease to prevent overheating. However, the surface of the flashlight can still reach 80-90 degrees Celsius, so caution is advised to avoid burns. The flashlight measures 124.5mm in length, with a head diameter of 65mm and a body diameter of 51.5mm. It weighs 410 grams without the handle and 453 grams including the handle, making it a substantial but manageable tool. The Convoy 3X21E 21700 flashlight is a powerful and versatile tool designed for users who demand high performance and reliability. With its robust construction, advanced LED configuration, and multiple operational modes, it is well-suited for a variety of applications, from professional use to outdoor activities. Its efficient power management, fast charging capabilities, and safety features make it a top choice for those seeking a dependable and high-performing flashlight.
