- the tint is a perfect neutral white, I think it's an XHP70 N4 3A emitter
- this thing is BRIGHT! It's one of the brightest lights I own
- fantastic heat management, barely gets hot. Steps down after 5 minutes but you can put straight back to turbo
- you can use the tailcap to lockout the light for long term storage (no drain on the batteries at all)
- when the light is off the electronic switch glows green, handy to find at night
- 7 modes, low med high turbo, press and hold from off for moonlight, and double click for strobe and SOS
Overall: a well designed light, with pretty well spaced modes, from less than 1 lumen to 3000+ lumens. It’s size and weight might not be ideal for anyone, but having a light that can be so bright without draining the batteries quickly or getting hot in seconds. Also comes with a shoulder strap which is an added bonus as well as 18650 sleeves in case you'd rather use them to 26650's. A high quality light, and really bright, and beautiful tint.
The package comes with some handy accessories - shoulder strap and spare lens is more than most lights come with. Spare tail cap cover and orings is more the norm and this is included. There are 2 spacers for using 18650 batteries but I recommend 26650 as they last nearly twice as long. My other big light is a 10 year old 4D Maglite with aftermarket LED dropin and it no where near as bright.
I use it practically every day when I take the dog to the local park for a run at night. One of the neighbours once thought I was the police because of the big light shining around the park. I would recommend it for anyone who gets around in the great outdoors, camping and hiking, fishing or just walking for excercise at night.

Both flashlights have an excellent build quality, both are larger flashlights with the ability to put out a significant amount of light. The competitor's flashlight puts out a maximum of 6,000 Lumens, while the S70s puts out a maximum of 3,960 Lumens – but in reality the difference, in output, isn't really noticeable. What is noticeable is the big difference in the color of the light put out; the competitor's light is noticeably cool, while the S70s puts out a beautiful, luxuriously warm light.
There are a lot of factors that come into play when choosing a flashlight; looks, style, build quality, warranty, etc.. but it is the light put out (by the flashlight chosen) that matters most. The S70s puts out a magnificent beam of warm light; a wonderful mix of flood and throw that impresses me every single time I use the S70s. The hot-spot punches its way out to a maximum of 680 meters while the spill provides wonderful illumination over a broad area. This is the best of both worlds in my mind – long distance capabilities coupled with broad coverage.
In the Box
The S70s arrived in the expected brown cardboard packaging. The flashlight and included accessories were very well protected by thick foam that features cut-out areas to snugly hold the S70s and the included accessories.
Battery Tubes (for use with 18650 batteries)
Spare Lens (glass)
Spare Switch covers
Tactical ring (for cigar grip)(I removed it, so it isn't shown in my pictures)
Key-rings (for using the shoulder strap)
Batteries are NOT included. I purchased 26650 batteries for use with the S70s, but 18650 batteries can be used (with the included tubes).
The build quality is excellent; on par with the major (well known) brands. The finish is of an equal quality; very well anodized with no defects and done in a black that is closer to gloss than it is flat. The battery tube features slight grooves that are cut in a thread pattern (like the threads on a screw) and give the user decent grip. The tube will hold 2 batteries (either 26650 or 18650).
The head features deep cooling fins with slight indentations cut out; providing decent ability to prevent rolling when placed on a surface that isn't level. The orange-peel reflector is deep: close to 3 inches (on a flashlight that is roughly 10 inches in length). The bezel is smooth and removable (so you can replace the glass lens if it is broken) by hand. Inside the bezel are indentations for use with a tool (I think it is called a spanner wrench) if the bezel is too tight for hand removal.
The tail-cap has cut-outs for easy access to the tail-switch. One one of the “walls” there are two smaller holes for use with a lanyard (not included) or the key-ring (included) so the shoulder strap can be attached. The other attachment (for the shoulder strap) is located just in front of the side switch. I would prefer it elsewhere (on the head) if I used the should strap. Since I don't, the location doesn't bother me.
The tail-cap is removable (the rest of the flashlight looks as though it was milled out of one solid piece of aluminum). The threads are anodized, square cut, and nicely lubricated at the factory. The tail-cap screws on/off without a hint of obstruction. Inside the cap is a stout spring; with a similar stout spring located at the head.
It could be the batteries I purchased, but I do notice a slight bit of battery wobble (noise) when shaking the S70s somewhat vigorously.

User Interface & Modes
The S70s has two switches; the primary ON/OFF switch on the tail and a mode switch on the side (near the head). Press/release (full click) the tail switch to put the S70s into standby mode; the side switch will glow (green/good or orange/needs to be charged) to indicate battery status. I find the glowing side switch to be very useful for locating the side switch in darkness. It is very easy to find the tail switch (total darkness) and with the side switch lit, it is similarly easy to locate the side switch.
While in standby mode, the side switch is used to enter into the other modes. There are five regular modes and a strobe mode (hidden). The S70s does have mode memory for 4 of the regular modes (low, medium, high, turbo). The S70s also has thermal protection to prevent damage to the flashlight – it will step down (from turbo to high) after 5 minutes or so. The head will get fairly warm when using turbo mode for more than a few minutes, but I have not experienced it becoming uncomfortably warm.
Moonlight Mode – 1 Lumen and will run up to 480 hours (that is 20 days)
Low Mode - 65 Lumens and will run up to 72 hours (that is 3 full days of run time)
Medium Mode – 320 Lumens and will run up to 18 hours.
High Mode – 1800 Lumens and will run up to 3 hours and 45 minutes
Turbo Mode – 3960 Lumens and will run up to 55 minutes
Moonlight Mode is entered by pressing and holding the side switch (while the S70s is in standby mode) until the flashlight turns on. Press/release the side switch to turn light off (and go back into standby mode).
Low Mode is entered by pressing/releasing the side switch (while in standby mode). Press/hold the side switch to return to standby mode.
From Low mode, press/release the side switch to cycle through the modes: Low, Medium, High, Turbo, Low. Press/hold the side switch to go back into standby mode. Press/release the tail switch to shut flashlight off.
Mode memory works (Low mode through Turbo mode) even if the S70s is turned off (tail switch) – the next time the light is turned on, the flashlight will enter the last mode used (not moonlight or strobe).
Strobe is entered from the standby mode – double click the side switch to go into strobe mode. This works whether the flashlight is on or off – as long as it is in standby mode. (It doesn't work when the flashlight is in moonlight mode) While in strobe mode, press/release the side switch to return to the previous mode used (including back to standby).
There's a lot to really like about the S70s; for me the best thing about this flashlight is the spectacular beam. In high mode and turbo mode, it easily lights up the trees that are 251 meters away (see the included pictures). Medium mode makes it as well, but that's a bit more difficult to discern (I can see it when the pictures are blown up on my computer).
That itself isn't the whole story though, as the S70s also lights up a wide swath on either side of the center beam. And it does so with a pleasing warm light that makes distinguishing features (at a distance) much easier.
The S70s has a distinct hot-spot that gradually spreads into flood light; providing excellent throwing ability with excellent flood ability. I find this kind of beam to be superior to the narrow, tight throwing beams with very little spill – simply because the S70s does a superior job of illuminating a broad area while also covering a long distance.
With a build that easily rivals the major brands, the S70s would be a contender if the prices were equal. The prices aren't equal though, as the S70s is a fraction of their prices (for a similar product). Add that advantage to the excellent beam, the warm light, and a warranty that is the equal of most competitors... and the Thorfire S70s is a clear winner.
The S70s is the perfect choice for night hunters, trappers, farmers, ranchers, and everyone else who needs a flashlight that can punch a huge hole in the darkness. It isn't pocket-able, but it does come with a shoulder strap that makes it easy to carry – even if you're walking long distances. It is fantastic for spotting raccoon up in a tree – using the outer edges of the beam to find eye reflections, and then the main beam to discern what kind of animal was spotted. Plus it's a lot easier to carry than those old monsters I used to carry many years ago – and it's probably 1,000 times brighter too (compared to the old 6 volt spotlights I used to hunt raccoon all those years ago).
The inclusion of a moonlight mode is a fantastic luxury; one that isn't usually found on this type of flashlight. It's surprising how often that mode is useful – and how well it works in complete darkness.
I think the S70s would make an excellent home use flashlight as well. It does tail-stand (fairly well) so it could be pressed into candle duty when the power goes out. On a full charge it will run up to 20 days in moonlight mode. It's stout enough that it could be pressed into defensive use – should that need ever arise. And for those times when you need to investigate outside noises late at night – well, you can check out your yard, the neighbor's yard, and a few beyond that too.
Overall I really like this light. The only thing I don't like about this light is the holes for the strap are a little too small. It is great for long distance, not really a light for close range. This thing is a thrower, not a flood light. The machining is great, the UI is easy, the beam is great, the battery options are great and the don't rattle. The brightness levels are well spaced. I like that moonlight and strobe are hidden and easy to access. I would like if there was an instant turbo command, but there is a memory of last used brightness used so you can leave in on turbo and have it default to that.
First impressions are that the machining on this light is very smooth, the threads are easy to screw together. The battery tube can be removed from the head to make it easy to store. It has a good grip. The only machining flaw it has is the only big issue I had with this light. The holes for the strap are too small for the strap to clip to. If you really work at it, they will clip on, but won’t be able to move freely. This can be fixed by using keychain rings, but it would have been nice for the strap to work as is with the holes. In addition to this, the front strap mount is right next to the side button which I didn’t like. Some may like this, so the strap can guide them to the button, I found the strap gets in the way of the button if the strap is not over my shoulder. There are two holes on the bottom, so the strap can be mounted to just the bottom of the light if you don’t want it near the button. For me these issues are very minor and not enough to take a star off the rating. I opted to not use the shoulder strap. The fin at the bottom where the strap is connected can also be removed if you don’t want to use the shoulder strap.
It is lighter and smaller than I expected which is a good thing, but still a pretty good-sized light. If you did want to take this with you hiking, camping, or backpacking the shoulder strap would be useful so it would be handy. One nice thing is it can stand on its tail, even being as top heavy as it is. The part it tail stands on also prevents accidental button pushes and has two holes for a lanyard.
The light has a fairly deep orange peel reflector. From the depth you can expect this to have a pretty good through and a tight hot spot, but the orange peel will soften the beam some. At a close range the hot spot is pretty small and the beam around the hot spot is very faint. The edge of the beam ends pretty sharply, there is not much spillage. At a distance you will see the softening from the orange peel reflector work and the beam opens up. For distance use the deep reflector and orange peel is a winning combination. This isn’t really a light that is useful for around the house, it is more for outdoor use.
The beam is slightly warm in temperature but mostly a neutral white. I am not too picky about temperature as long as it is not blue and this one is not blue at all.
The side button also has an LED in it to help you find the button, this is on when the light is on and when it is in standby mode. The light is not evenly bright over the button because you can see the button mechanism through it, but it does the job. The side button has a good feel to it. The tail switch will fully turn the light off and back on, the rubber feels a little squishy, but it does have a nice click. You can mechanically lock it by twisting the tailcap a little bit if you are worried it will get turned on accidentally.
The user interface is easy, it is not an overly simple UI, but it is not as complicated as the BLF q8. The tail switch turns it off and on. The side switch is used to switch modes, go into standby, and activate the strobe. The light does have a memory and will return to the previous brightness.
In turbo it will get hot, but it does not get as hot as other lights I have. The large head and cooling fins do a nice job keeping this reasonably cool, and the long battery tube keeps your hand away from the heat. A little heat will make its way to the top of the tube, but it isn’t too hot to hold.
The ability to use either 18650 or 26650 batteries is a nice feature. The adapter tubes work great. 18650 batteries generally won’t have more than 3500 mAh, and will be depleted quickly, using 26650 batteries are the better option, but being able to use 18650 batteries in a pinch is a nice feature.
The light has several different levels. Moonlight is nice when you need to move around with minimal lighting. Turbo is very bright, it lights up houses 2 blocks away. I can get eye reflection of raccoons around 200 yards. Then there are other levels spread out between. All in all, I would say that it is a nice, usable flood between 0 and 75 yards. Beyond that the light pattern is very broad. Would love to have an adjustable feature to focus more of it into a spotlight beyond 150-200 yards. The power of the light is capable, it just lacks the focus adjustment.
The strobe/flash setting is most impressive. I had my wife activate it on me while I was about 25 yards away. Completely blinding during dark with that feature. Great for a home defensive situation.
All in, great light for the home/emergency situations. Will keep one by my bed in the night stand and buy another to put in the garage. It definitely out shines any of the Mag lights I have purchased in the past, and at a fraction of the price to boot!
