Convoy C8+ 18650 Powered Thrower with Biscotti Flashlight Review

There’s a new seller in town!  The US-based store MohrLumens.com has opened and is selling the likes of Convoy, Lumintop, and Sofirn lights.  The benefit of course, is that the items are shipping from the US, so you’re likely to get your items much quicker than from other (even official) channels.  MohrLumens.com sent the Convoy C8+ for a bit of testing, and I’m hopeful that many more Convoy reviews are on tap!
