UPDATE: This light is so good I've bought 2 of them now, they are also the perfect gift as they come with a battery and charger as well
was late putting it together so missed the "return window" - don't waste your money.

I used the light for about 10-11 weeks when the front element fell out. The glass was gone, and the silver reflector was in my pocket. I have no idea how that happened since I never dropped it, and had it in my coat pocket during the preceding walk. I was very surprised, and quite disappointed. I emailed customer service with a description and photos and my Amazon order number and they exchanged it for a new unit - I was really impressed by how quickly this was handled! I truly hope that this was just a fluke/manufacturing error, and not a design error, because I love this flashlight so much and have not yet found anything comparable.
Cons: The charger is, and feels, incredibly cheap. There are no instructions anywhere as to which direction the battery goes in the charger or flashlight. When charging, the charger light is red, and will turn green when battery is charged, but sometimes it fluctuates between the two, and there is no way of telling how much charge is still left, etc., so don't expect anything sophisticated. I don't have much faith in the charger but so far, it has charged, so I should not complain. I typically go about 5 weeks of light use before recharging (although the battery has not yet run out on me).
Getting the flashlight to work after reinstalling the battery is tricky. Don't panic if it doesn't turn on - just re-open and tighten things down again. Eventually, I got it working and once it works, it works, but it can be frustrating. I have not yet figured out why it would do that - everything seems to fit well and tight. I suspect the push button at the end, that turns the light off and on, but am not sure.
Overall, I wholeheartedly recommend this flashlight if you want something small, convenient, yet bright. The price was just right for me to forgive its few quirks.
This flashlight from Thorfire is the best flashlight I have ever purchased (out of perhaps 25-30 others I have tried). It packs the best light-output punch for the size I have seen yet. I am never satisfied with the light output of flashlights I purchase but this one has so much power I seldom use it on high power. The beam is focused and has fantastic throw distance (I haven't measured, but I am estimating at least 400 ft on a dark night). The five output settings are easy to select and the strobe feature will completely debilitate an attacker at night. The battery Thorfire supplies is not a cheap Chinese knockoff. I am an electrical engineer and can attest to the battery providing at least as much capacity as it is rated for. The case is well-made, sturdy, waterproof, and seems indestructible. It comes coomplete with an extra set of water-proofing o-rings. Finally, this thing is TINY! Not much bigger than an average-sized folding pocket knife. The only defect I can complain about is the charger. I found that the charger does not completely charge the battery (it does charge it but only to about 90% of its stated capacity).
I purchased this flashlight several months ago and seldom write Amazon reviews. However, I was so impressed with this light, I felt I had to come back, sit down and write a review. It's just that good. You might think I was paid for this review. I wasn't. The only compensation I received was the surprise of getting a flashlight this good for this price, and the only reason I wrote it is to let other flashlight nerds know what I treasure this little light is.
The VG15S has 5 modes:
Firefly - 0.5 lumens
Low - 50 lumens
Mid - 200 lumens
High - 600 lumens
Turbo - 1,070
Using the 18650 battery that is supplied, the run time of each mode is as follows:
Firefly - 360 hours
Low - 22 hours
Mid - 2 hours 45 minutes
High - 1 hour 25 minutes
Turbo - 45 minutes
I wouldn't recommend running the flashlight on "turbo" for 45 minutes, as the heat that will be generated could damage the electronic components.
This flashlight is drop resistant up to 1 metre and waterproof up to 2 metres (IPX-8), thanks to the O-rings. The beam has an intensity of 9,800cd and a maximum range of 200 metres at its brightest.
All things considered, the flashlight is great value for money. I will probably buy more of these as gifts come Christmas.
