Thorfire VG10 Review

I am reviewing the Thorfire VG10 (video review), (newest version) sent to me by Thorfire for review.

First a couple of things I did not get in the video,

The switch is forward clicky with memory. The Bezel IS made of steel and not aluminum. The light does have a clip but is hard to use if the cigar holder is in place, (although clip works fine without cigar holder) You may notice the reflector has a slight rippled look inside, this does not seem to affect the beam at all during regular use, as it is a smooth beam. In the wall shots there is a little ringyness, this also is not noticeable in regular use. The star sits on an integrated shelf (not sure of thickness) with thermal paste under the star, It DOES seem to move the heat out well though. There are lots of extra parts that came with this light, lanyard, spare O-rings, extra AR lens, extra switch assembly and rubber boot, everything is pictured in the slide portion of the video but thought I would mention that this all came with the light. Also has a 3000mah battery with it, and charger. Everything was very well packaged as also shown in slide portion.

The video, and then under that the manufacturers specs.

$26.99 for light , holster and cigar holder /or $35.99 for full kit with free shipping for either at time of this review.

Nice review, I would have to agree that it is a very good combo light with a spot/flood beam. I got mine back in June. With the products I got from Thorfire and other reviews ive seen they have real good quality builds.

Does your light have noticeable high frequency noise while on medium mode? or sometimes on low? On the one received, that was the only con for me. I also read about it in FlashLion’s review too.

Yes I did notice the noise on medium only, but it is very low and has to be really quiet to hear it on mine.

Thanks for replying back, same as mine then. Still, a great light for the price! Is the beam shot test area part of your land or is it some place else? If it’s your land, that looks like a sweet place!

Nice threads on that light. ThorFire sure has got their stuff together. Convoy and ThorFire are my favorite quality budget lights.

The land belongs to a neighbor, I just have permission to go over there and it is only like 50 yards to the start of it from my house.

Nice review. They get better every time. Smile

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.
