I received this light from Thorfire for review with a discounted price.
I know there are already a few reviews of this light , but I did get this for review so here goes my take.
As usual the light was packaged very well when I received it from Thorfire. This version looks the same on the outside as the old version with the exception of the tailcap has been changed to have cut outs and is knurled now.
The lens in this light IS glass , although it does not appear to have any AR coating on it. I took some tailcap readings and these are the numbers taken with the Uni-T clamp meter.
Moon 0.00 ……. Low 0.07 ……. Medium 0.79 ……… High 2.97 ……. I am sure these numbers will change with a spring bypass on both ends (which I will do later and update)
Overall another solid light from Thorfire and a good value IMO.
The rest is in the video and the teardown (25 pictures) and beamshots start at 4:28 in the video , with the shining around outside following that , if you do not want to watch the whole thing.

Pattern Name: Flashlight Only
ThorFire C8s LED Torch Flashlight CREE XM-L2 LED Torch Best C8 Light Ever for Cycling Biking Camping Hiking Hunting Redesigned for Higher Quality
C8 model is very popular and it’s branded by many xxxFire brands. But this one is not like the cheap made one. Refering to the second pic on the detail page, you will know we redesigned the C8, making it a much better light which deserves higher price.
Upgraded Cree LED
The XLamp XM-L2 LED delivers up to 20% more lumens and lumens-per-watt of the original XM-L. Driven by 2.8A high current, the ThorFire C8s gives out max 900 lumens on High. You might know other xxFires C8 lights claims to be 1000LM or even higher than 1300LM. If you go to cree officail site, you will know XM-L2 gives out max 1198 lumens at 3A, 25¡ãC which is tested in lab. For a flashlight with XM-L2 LED, it’s really hard to reach 1198 lumens.
Simple 4 Modes + Strobe
We made the updated ThorFire C8s 4 modes(High/Mid/Low/Moonlight) with Strobe mode . Furthermore, High is really bright to save your ass and Moonlight (0.5LM) is really low to protect your night vision, check babies, find keys, check machines etc.
Too many customers are sick of the next mode design. ThorFire C8s remembers the mode after you use it longer than 3 seconds.
