The Thorfire VG10S is currently only $14.70 AC on Amazon right now after code N5LH2OQT
. AFAIK, this is the cheapest this light has ever been and cheapest in the price history by $6. No tax collected in CA.
I can also confirm from testing of one that I own (that I got 1-2 years ago) that this light does put out 1000+ lumens. You'll need to buy a reputable 18650 battery though. Don't skimp there because you need a good battery to do high output safely. Thorfire is a highly regarded brand on Budget Light Forums and they built the BLF Q8 which I also own.
Coupon code: N5LH2OQT
Note: I do not work or contract for Thorfire and I'm not being reimbursed for posting this in anyway. I (and several other people) were sent this coupon code because I'm a member of BLF and CPF.
