EDIT: (10/13/16) received a discount code from Thorfire on this light tonight and was asked to post that in the forum. Code is good for $5.99 off the regular price CODE 4R785VAD and link to light HERE
I received the Thorfire PF-04 from Thorfire as one of the fifty they had asked for to do reviews on the new “upgraded” version. The light itself was sent free of charge , although I did pay the shipping cost which were not that much ($5.62 I think it was). As always , free or full priced I try to give my honest opinion when I review a light so here goes……
I did not mention in the video portion of the review that I already have the first or “original PF04” , the first revision of it and now this new “upgraded PF04” These lights are not made to be modding incase any of you are wondering about that , as they are glued well. I did manage to get this one apart and back together in working order though with some coaxing , but I do not advise taking these lights apart at all.
As always with Thorfire the light arrived very well packaged , with it in a bubble wrap sleeve and that inside the cardboard box and well padded and that was inside a padded mailing envelope. The threads were well lubed , but not overly , as I have seen on some lights. I did mention the switch is not as stiff on the Upgraded model as my last model , but it is still stiff enough it should prevent accidental switching in the pocket. This version also has mode memory and goes to the last used mode when turned on and the modes are moon or (low) then medium and high. I did not notice any PWM to my eye or in the camera either one.
It may have already been noted also in a prior review (s) the threads are anodized so about 1/8 to 1/4 turn will let you “lock out” the light.
I think I covered most everything else in the video with the still shots or teardown (slide portion of video) and the outside shining around as well as one beamshot 3 feet from wall , just to show the beam profile. (which is a very smooth beam)
The video followed by the listed specs………… (you may have to click where it says “Youtube” at the bottom of the video screen after the video starts , to watch full screen) as I have had a problem with the full screen function lately.
Price at time of review $19.99
