Vastfire VA-PO8 | Awaiting A Second Sample to Review!

It’s funny how a cruddy light can grow on you as you hold it and play with it for a few days, ya know…

PROS:
-Throwy (real 400 meters)
-Beam profile
-Great magnet
-Great COB light
-USB charging port
-Type-C charging

CONS:
-It died!
-Not very bright
-No mode memory (next mode memory)
-No anti-roll
-Lens can hit something when facing down on a surface
-COB light has blinkies.
-In-light charging doesn’t work.
-Expensive (was listed at $40+)

Was it Angry Blue™ because it was rated like 10000K, or was it overheated to turning blue?

The latter would explain it going pouf.

The specs differed on tint color, but it seemed to never change. No hint of burning up.

Joe sorry for your loss. Friends don’t let friends buy ****fire lights or batteries.

There are some exceptions to the ****fire rule, but they're few and far between.

For example, Thorfire makes (or made) some nice stuff.

(I don't know if they're still in business.)  :BEER:
