Thorfire VG10S, manual, belt clip, 2x o-ring
Flashlight has nice feel and looks good quality.
Threads are square but little thin. They are anodised and came well lubricated.
Tube is not reversable.
Threads are not compatible with VG10 version, but are with Sofirn SF36, so you can use SF36 tailcap.
Tail switch is reverse clicky mounted on 17mm board. It has nice click.
Flashlight can tailstand without problems.
Driver is 19mm, bigger driver won’t fit. It’s fixed with retaining ring.
Wires to LED are 24AWG
It has 4 modes with memory and strobe on double click. Modes are nicely spread.
Head has SS bezel. Glass is 27x2mm AR coated and reflector is SMO. AR coating is very light, but it’s there.
There is o-ring between glass nad reflector and reflector has groove for o-ring to sit nicely.
Exactly same bezel and glass is on Sofirn SF36. Reflector is similar but not the same (or just some manufacturing difference.
LED is XP-L2 and is on 17x1,6mm copper board.
There is 1 screw holding board to shelf. Shelf is fixed, so no pill.
There is good amound of thermal paste between board and shelf.
Flashlight is 134mm long, diameter is 26mm at tail and 32,5mm at head.
Comparison picture with Thorefire VG10 and Sofirn SF36
Cheap dmm, not sure how accurate it is so I made measurements on some other flashlights to compare.
Used ICR18650-26C battery
