Thorfire TG06S Full Package / Full review
« on: March 10, 2018, 08:05:08 AM »
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 the light only for 40% off with the coupon code 8YGYJ38C from the Amazon site …… ...(link is external) (link is NON afilliated)

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……..
