UPDATE:
22nd Feb: I sent payment and email, but left out a phone number and got an address query because of the second set of ‘area code’ digits in some (all?) US addresses. Received a response from Thorfire asking for the information.

24th Feb: While paying, PayPal defaulted received currency to HKD which is NOT what Thorfire wanted so they sent another message stating that payment currency was inappropriate and to take ‘X’ steps to prevent PayPay from changing payment currency. (I could not follow the steps.) They also said that the VG-10 s I ordered ‘will be delivered soon’ and that when they receive a tracking number, they’ll let me know it.

25th: I haven’t received a tracking number as yet. (Will EDIT when I do. )
EDIT: 27th Feb: Received a tracking number Smile (No information as yet.)

Out of curiousity, for those of you who paid, did Thorfire’s received currency default to HKD too?

My gratitude to those who are willing and able to help others (in whatever way you can)! Being human is more than just existing for yourself. Smile

Yeah, I messed up my PayPal order as well. I read and understood the request from ThorFire to pay in USD, so when I did PayPal I selected USD and thought I did it right.

But PayPal CHANGED the payment “behind the scenes” to HKD. There is a special setting you have to change to avoid PayPal “dynamic currency conversion” it seems. I would have done it, if I had known.

Received my order yesterday.  Thank you Thorfire.  Not too crazy about what I found in the first (and only so far) light I opened.  It was a VG10 that was very hard to unscrew the bezel.  Once off, the reflector had to be pried out from 2 o-rings.  This is what I found under the reflector:

The first spacer was a LB star that was upside down on the shelf.  The next spacer was a much thicker round disk.  The holes in the emitter shelf seem much larger than necessary and there is a big divot in the center.  The reflector must be a much shorter version to fit in the host.  Unfortunately, I don't have an older VG10 to compare it to.  I will try to measure it and report back.

Other than the above, the light looks good.  I will try to check out the other lights tonight.

Multiple heat transfer barriers. I hope mine doesn’t look like this. I wanted to mod it for higher power Sad

Sad THAT is not what I was expecting when I paid for the lights. (My package was delivered in the USA but, is yet to arrive to me in Trinidad so don’t know yet, what I’m getting.)

I ordered 4 VG10 and received the boxes the other day. I have not opened them but guess I Need to now.
My order was made through Amazon and received a code to purchase from there. No problems with payment or anything on those lines for me.

Opening them up ASAP….

No it isn’t. All 4 of mine have the stack of crap under the emitter to make up for the wrong reflector.
I am uploading pics ATM.

HAPPY?
Absolutely NOT!!

EEEEEbowler…. 10!! WOW. Not such a good deal now. I really hope you get a few good ones in that load. I feel ripped off of $40, $100 would make a sore spot for a Long time.

There are pics of reflectors out there we had on the last batches. I think mpache? posted one but there were also issues with variations in those too. I had one that would focus to a black hole in the spot and my other didn’t. Different reflectors in each. This batch is just absurd. Having to shim 4-5mm is uncalled for. I also found a USED LatticeBright MCPCB at the bottom. Yes used… as it has solder on the emitter pad making an unstable base and practically NO thermal contact to the shelf in the head. . All 4 lights had odd artifacts around the spot like it wasn’t centered. Looking through lens it certainly looked cenered and I was thinking it was weird. Now I know why as the pile of crap under the emitter was not parallel to the shelf. I am really pissed off with Thorfire passing off these lights to this forums members. Obviously seconds made of whatever was available to throw some lights together to make some money off us.

I now own more than 10 thorfire lights. I have let a couple issues with previous lights pass by without calling them out. I will not let this purchase pass without resolution. My first was a TG06 that shorted out within 5 minutes of use, swapping between AA and 14500 batteries. Driver was loose and I was not aware of it and shorted it out after owning for 5 minutes. Another was one out of three previourly bought VG10 that had another bad (different) reflector. I could not get the black hole out of the center of the spot. I accepted it as I wanted to make one of those a triple anyway and 2 out 3 were good.

Trying to be loyal to the brand I also purchased 3 more lights that arrived this week. Second TG06 and darn right I reseated the driver and tightened it into its seat properly. I wanted to have the option of AA or LiIon. That one seems OK so far. Another was the TS3A stainless AAA which is kinda similar to the SF348. Nice light but it has unavoidable Strobe and now hate it for that. But this one had a piece of O-ring sticking out of the head and body, yes it was Cut and No there were no replacements in the box. Thanks Thorfire. Third is the KL02 and that also seems fine except the tint is too cold.

I have only completely taken apart one of the VG10 and not touching the other 3. It is obvious the other 3 have the same stack under the emitter. First, face down on the shelf is the used LB MCPCB, Second is a smaller diameter machined aluminum disc with the actual emitter on its MCPCB on top. There is white goop between the parts of the stack.
