Welcome to my Thorfire S70S review !
A few words for the flashlight :
First Look :
Flashlight in it’s box . Box is pretty big , i was surprised … :
Package Contains :
- User manual
- Shoulder strap
- 3x O-rings
- 2x extra rubber boots
- Extra glass lens
- 2x keyrings
A closer look :
Flashlight is big enough as you probably guessed , due to it’s 2*26650 configuration and the nice big reflector :
Head has an interesting design with lot’s of cooling fins :
Notice the side switch too …
Notice the hole over the switch to mount the shoulder strap :
Look how deep the cooling fins near the led are :
The bezel :
Flashlight has an OP reflector and AR coated glass :
Led close-up of the led , the XHP70 :
And a bonus cool shot of the led :
Tube is a little different , no knurling at all :
It is grippy with this design as well …
The tactical ring , anti-roll design :
Tail switch (on/off function) :
It’s spring is a gold plated one , stiff but it gets compressed nicely .
In the opposite side , in the head , driver is probably a 30mm one , held with a retaining ring . Driver’s spring is strong :
Nice , “square” & anodized threads on the tube (tailcap side) :
E-switch’s nice locator / battery indicator :
Shoulder strap :
In order to use the sholder strap , you need to add 2 split rings :
And the adjustable shoulder strap :

How it works (&modes) :
Flashlight uses the switch at the taicap for main power on/off function .
E-switch navigates easilly through modes , but is also used to temporary turn off the light , get in standby mode .
For example , if you turn on the switch at the tailcap , flashlight will be still in standby mode until you press the e-switch .
From standby mode :
- Single (short) click goes into last used mode , and with another click switch to the next mode (Low-Mid-High-Turbo). If you wish , with a long click you enter standby mode and with double click strobe .
- Long click (press and hold) enters moonlight mode . One more short click to switch to the normal modes .
When power (tailcap switch) is on , switch’s led is on and functions as locator / battery indicator .
Moonlight mode is very low , awesome.
Basen IMR26650 4500mAh were used in all measurements
- Moonlight : ~0,7 lumens
- Low : 192 lumens
- Mid : 640 lumens
- High : 1532 lumens
- Turbo : 3220 lumens , after 5 minutes steps down to high mode
Tailcap measurements (amperage draw) :
- Standby mode : 4,39mA
- Firefly : 5.65 mA
- Low : 0.2 A
- Mid : 0.7 A
- High : 1.96 A
- Turbo : 5.09 A
Intensity : 58,8 kcd
Control shot :
Well designed light , with pretty well spaced modes , from less than 1 lumen to 3k+ lumens . It’s size and weight might bot be ideal for anyone , but having a light that can be so bright without draining the batteries quickly or getting hot in seconds . The shoulder strap is a big plus for me , i find it very useful !
Overall a high quality light , and really bright .
Comment if you want me to check something on the flashlight , or tell your opinion . Thanks !
