Thorfire TG06S Full Package / Full review

This is the Thorfire TG06S package or kit , sent to me by Thorfire for review and NO other compensation other than keeping the kit.

At the time of this review , you can get this package for 40% off with the coupon code 8YGYJ38C* *(USA ONLY) from the Amazon site …… https://www.amazon.com/ThorFire-flashlight-battery-compatiable-Included/... (link is NON afilliated)

EDIT: I guess they decided to go another route….Light only for the 40% off looks like with the code ………. 8YGYJ38C (USA ONLY)

I know there have been a number of reviews on the TG06 S light , but as far as I know this is the first time the “package deal” has been made with this light.

The TG06SS kit / package , arrived in an Amazon Box with large bubble wrap inside and the Thorfire box inside that and the light inside a bubble wrap sleeve inside the Throrfire box. The kit includes the light itself , the single cell USB charger , 2 extra O-rings and the Thorfire (protected) 14500 BRC / 750 mAh – 2.8 wh cell.

The TG06S is not changed as far as the UI or the styling or any of that since the most recent model , just that they are now offering the Kit or Package with the above mentioned items.
As for the light itself it is the quality I have come to expect for the Thorfire lights and a very well made little light , for the more budget pricing they usually have on thier products.
The light is dual chemistry capable meaning it can use a variety of cells from AA Alkaline , NiMH and Li-ion 14500 and as already mentioned the Thorfire cell does come with the light.

The light although not as small as some 14500 / AA sized lights , is still plenty small for any pocket and very doable as an EDC light.
Comparison is with an 18650 cell and the Thorfire VG15S…..

The Knurling , anodizing and machining are all well done and I did not find any thin or bare spots on the light anywhere.

The clip on the light seems pretty sturdy and is also reverseable so you can use the light on a ballcap as a headlamp if needed.

The XP-G2 emitter sits in a smooth reflector and the lens is a glass lens , although I am unsure if it is AR coated . if so it is a very light coating.

The light will tailstand but needs to be on a fairly level surface due to the cut outs or finger grooves at the end of the cap itself. The knurling is also done well on the tailcap and the switch is pretty responsive. There are lanyard holes in the tailcap also if you happen to want to use a lanyard on the light.

All the threads were lightly lubed when I got the light and all the threads are well cut and pretty smooth.
The head is threaded all the way through pretty much , because the “pill” which the MCPCB and the driver both sit in / on , screws in all the way from the back end to the back of the reflector and the driver is a constant current.
The tail threads are anodized , so you can manually lock out the light. (no electronic lockout)

The beam is pretty smooth and fairly throwy for the small light also , with a useable spill , plenty bright for using to walk with. The tint is in the cool range although not to the point of being the blueish cool , I would guess in the 5500 to 6000K range.

All beamshots were taken using the included 14500 cell.
These shots at Gray wall from 3 feet on Medium and then 10 feet in all 4 modes….

These at 75 yards from Gate in Turbo , 50 yards High and Turbo and 25 yards Medium , High and Turbo………

And finally all 4 modes at 10 yards from gate…….

The UI is pretty straight forward with the light starting in High or Turbo every time and then goes down to the next level with each half press , from what I call Turbo it is……Turbo / High / Medium / Low or Moon. The reason I say it this way , is because with the 14500 cells the lowest lumens reading I get is 6 lumens and up to 8 lumens. In my opinion that is just too high to call Moon or Firefly. With the NiMh it does go down to 2 lumens.

The runtimes are also good with the 14500 cell and I was a bit surprised it ran as long as it did with the test I did on the included cell.
Here are the charts on the testing I have done with the included cell , an Efest 14500 High Drain and an Eneloop Pro……..

Video Followed by listed specs……………..

Product description

New Features on TG06S
1. More Modes: When use premium 14500 battery, the brightness can be High(500LM) -Middle(200LM) -Low(50LM)-Moonlight (1LM ), and Strobe(500LM); When powered by AA battery, the mini light gives out High(150LM) -Middle(80LM) -Low(20LM)-Moonlight (0.5LM ), and Strobe(150LM)
2. Easier Operation. Fully press the turn on/off, tap to change modes, double tap to activate Strobe mode for emergency.

We still keep the old features on TG06S as below:
1. The lightweight makes the newly designed ThorFire TG06S fits easily into your pocket, backpack, purse, or tool bag.
2. With one considerate metal clip, you can clip it to your shirt pocket.
3. It is great for multiple indoor and outdoor applications including searching, camping, hiking, or even use as an emergency light when suffering a power outage.
4. One cooler thing is that the O-ring behind the lens glows in the dark, which makes it easy to be found in the dark.

Did you check the charger for ending voltage and charge rate? Always starts on high , no memory?Always like the music.

Same here. Just as well. I was thinking of suggesting this deal to a friend, but I’d probably have bought one for myself, too…

FWIW, the listing for the bare (no battery or charger) TG06S has a 40% offer on Amazon right now.

Yeah, but I wanted to try the kit.

Actually, was just looking and I see that the order is high-to-low, not low-to-high. Hmmm. Not really a fan of being blinded at night when I want low or even moonlight/firefly. That’s a bit disappointing.

The ending voltage listed in the chart in OP (2.73) …….didn’t check charge rate.

H-M-L and according to the Amazon page you MUST use a button top if using 14500. Bummer.

Just discovered this wonderful addiction.

Anyone has both this and the sofirn SF12 to compare? I know it has the same mode, forward clicky, emitter, but I fell like my SF12 is terribly machined, and the retaining rings get loose every once in a while, making it by far my most failed light. I’d like to know if the thorfire version fares better

I just tried the Flat top Windyfire’s I have , they work fine and it takes a heck of a jolt straight back to get a blink out of the light. The Efest and AWT High drain button tops wont loose contact at all and of course the protected cell that came with it is even a little longer.

EDIT: I can see where it could be a problem if you use a cell that is not raised at all on top (the windyfire is very slightly raised) but the driver end is really flat where the cell makes contact so yea a button top may be best for safety really.

I updated the OP but it looks like they are doing the light ONLY and not the package for the 40% off with the coupon code ………. 8YGYJ38C
I will update again when I hear anything else from them on this.

I am not sensitive to the PWM but I just checked using a fan with 4 different speeds and also my video camera monitor and I cannot see any with either in any of the modes.

Hey robo,

Thanks for the great review!

One thing makes me hesitate.

Do you think the discrepancy between listed lumens on Nimh and actual lumens with an Eneloop Pro was a mistake with your light or would other lights also exhibit the same behavior? Its really weird that a manufacturer would under list the performance on turbo by 50%. 150 lumens on a good Nimh is kinda sad but ~300 lumens is pretty close to Utorch UT01/klarus mi7 territory. Maybe the 150 lumens refers to alkaline only?

If it produces 300 lumens on a nimh I’d instantly buy a few. 150? Not so much.

Always glad to do the reviews Hiker…….

I just rechecked on the meter with the NiMH and the 14500’s , readings are almost identical to the first test.
With a new Duracell copper top I got 233 Lumens.

I don’t have a clue if it is all the lights or if I just got a fluke , but mine is staying consistent.

I checked a couple of other lights on the meter that I know the lumens are correct on also to be sure my meter battery wasn’t running down or anything , all seems to be spot on with the meter.

Thanks Robo!

For 10 bucks what the heck its worth a shot. The great thing about inexpensive AA lights is that if the output isn’t quite up to par you can always re gift it to someone!

I wouldn’t worry too much about the discrepency you’ve observed, hker89.

While lazyness, mistakes or outright dishonesty can come into play, there are plenty of much more benign reasons for differences between a manufacturer claim and an independent test.

In this case, I think you’ve probably already hit on the likely source of most of the discrepancy. If you check ThorFire’s description, they don’t specify the chemistry of the AA cell tested. I’d guess, and robo819s retest suggests that they were probably testing with Alkalines. Not surprising, since a NiMH cell can deliver a lot more power (watts) than an Alkaline.

Another factor is that the numbers may not actually mean the same thing. I don’t know about robo819, but a lot of people test with a topped off cell. It’s the easiest way to make sure different tests are being done at similar state of charge. A downside is that it doesn’t give a very clear sense of whats typical. I can’t say for sure, but from comparing manufacturer claims to peoples tests of lumens at a given current and forward voltage, its clear to me that the number some report is more like the output when the cell is at its nominal voltage (3.6-3.8v). This is in many ways a much more useful number, but it can be harder to test for.

Yes I do test with the cells topped off always so I get the most consistent numbers and all cells are at their peak.

The run time testing is where I show what the cell is doing as it progresses, (as noted in charts in OP) as far as output.
I do not stop the testing once I turn the light on however to do any checking on the voltage or anything , as I always just turn the light on in the highest mode and then take measurements at the step down (sometimes at 30 seconds depending on light) and then usually at 15 minutes and 30 minutes and every 30 minutes after that until the Low Voltage warning , or cut off, and then check the voltage at that time.

IMHO – way too long for an AA light – 109mm!?

Geez, the Utorch ut-01 is 83mm.

Guess they listed that wrong too………

I just measured mine to see and it is only 95mm (3.74 inches) not the listed 109mm (4.3 inches)

I’m using one of these, for half a year now. Nice little backup torch.

Put an eneloop in it, and be happy.

Swap the tailswitch for a lighted one, ditto with a nylon washer and an opaque tailcap, and presto …..
Works fine out of the box, you don’t need to add a bleeder resistor.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.
