review: Thorfire VG10

veröffentlicht am 1. March 2015 in Allgemein, Coupons und Codes von

Hello my friends!

Thorfire sent me a sample of the:
ThorFire VG10 Tactical Flashlight
it is the upgraded version with a Cree XM-L2 LED, has 4 Modes (0.5 – 847Lumen) and comes with a 18650 Battery and USB Charger.

i save my place for pictures an thoughts – you can find the tech data on banggoods website

and i managed to get a discount:

Code: VG10  Price: $ 22,99

 

i received a cardboard box last friday

opened it…

and found a lot of stuff…

the flashlight, a USB-charger, a lanyard, and a small bag (beside the user manual and a warranty card)

the small bag with the spare parts included:

a O-Ring, a spare lens, a tail switch and a rubber boot

the included charger fits for 18650 and 16340 cells

rated 1000mA

the micro USB-port

the cell is a “eachine BRC 18650 2200 mAh”

i tested it in my BT-C3100 and got 2324 as result… nice!
not so nice is the fact that the cell shuts off at 2,9Amps

let´s have a closer look at the light:

there are 2 holes at the tailcap for using a lanyard

and a wobbly (stainless?) steel ring

the head is HOT!

smooth SS bezel and smooth reflector

you can hardly see the (non-coated) glass between the bezel and the redish O-ring

there is the Cree XM-L2

the reflector sit very deep on a thin centering ring…

it can tailstand!

lets open it!

no square cut threads – but lubed

threads are anodized, only the last bit makes contact to the tailcap (lockout)

i removed the (did i say it wobbles?) ring and the clip

the clip left scratches ( i only removed the clip, never rotated or mounted twice)

inside the tailcap

a quite long spring – unprotected pulls did work as did my veery long Panasonic

disassembeld

mind the correct order!

as you can see the “batterytube” screws wide over the head

i removed the reflector

the LED on a aluminium star with the plastic centering ring

the driver has some stars and a long spring also

the brass ring which holds the driver in place and makes contact to the battery tube needed a bit raw force (me using pliers) and chemistry (coolant spary) to jump out

enough thermal paste under the star…

dimples in the head

on both sides….

the driver without the coil

all together – ahem apart

unfortunataly my beamshots went south – a home cinema canvas is not good for that…

but i have some numbers:

Amps on tailcap

using the eachine cell:2,470,970,070,001
using a Samsung IMR 25R:2,971,070,070,001

Lumens out of my BudgetLightBox: (NCR 25R)

conclusion:

conclusion:

plus
* a nice light!
* well built, and you get a lot for the price (which is 29,99 atm at banggood…)
* it has a good beamprofile (i will take photos as soon as i reassemble it – IF i am sucessful)

minus

* the switch at the tailcap is very hard to press! with my “normal sized” hands it felt uncomortable operating it with one hand
* the UI : if OFF you tap to cycle High/Mid/Low/Moon and when you get to the needed level you fully press/klick the switch
to change the level you have to switch it OFF and tap again (fortunately it has mode
memory)
* the cell can only deliver 2,9 Amps and switches off then

i did not test the charger (i do not believe cheapos)
maybe i open it up sometimes and check the chip which dioes the magic…

No votes yet.
Please wait...
