Convoy T3 Titanium (NM1) Review

General thoughts after a week of usage/size comparison/practicality/interesting things:
β€’ When I started collecting lights again, I never considered getting a 14500-cell light. I just saw the 18650/21700 as a better option for sustained output, and most of the brighter flashlights used them too. So finally I’ve come full circle again and appreciate the versatility of these smaller AA-style lights. The T3 is one of the nicest looking AA lights out there that doesn’t cost a fortune and has excellent construction quality. Convoy was kind enough to send me a free sample of the T3 for me to review it in this video.
β€’ What’s included in the box: the flashlight and a lanyard!
β€’ Comparison with: Pokelit AA, Wurkkos TS10, Acebeam H10, Olight Diffuse

Overall Construction, LED, lens, bezel and reflector
β€’ The machining is flawless, and there are no sharp edges or imperfections on the light. I chose the titanium model, as it’s significantly more durable than the aluminum one… and looks cool! You can opt for the stonewash version too. Bare titanium finish – no coating.
β€’ This is the version with the CSLNM1.TG – released recently. You can also get other LEDs in this light, including the SST-20, and Nichia 519A. Smooth reflector, simple bezel design, glass lens.
β€’ I love the tailswitch and clip you get with this light. They are both made of titanium and are highly rigid.
β€’ Runs on 14500 (1.5A max) and AA (0.5A max)

UI – modes
β€’ 12 mode groupings – I selected the mode with 1, 10, 30, 100%
β€’ Press fully to turn on/off, half press to switch modes
β€’ Mode memory can be switched on/off

Performance – total output, beam profile, longevity, practicality
β€’ CCT, CRI, Ceiling bounce test
β€’ Not a lot of spill until you enter the higher modes. Most of the light is concentrated in the center of the beam.

β€’ Threads are a bit scratchy – I’ve noticed this is common with titanium lights. It doesn’t affect the performance of the light in any way, and you never need to worry about stripping threads again.
β€’ Shorter run times on 100% due to 14500 cell.
No onboard charging. I use an Acebeam 14500 cell in this light which has a USB-C charging port.
β€’ Doesn’t come with any accessories besides a lanyard.

β€’ This is an awesome little pocket thrower and is probably one of the best value ones out there. It reminds me a little of the titanium Reylights – the quality is just as good! Part of me wishes I got the stone wash version instead as it has a different aesthetic, more low-key.
