ThorFire TG05

Thorfire Tg05

 
I have this light for a few days , today I took some pictures and wanted to share here.

It came in its own box with some accessories 3 additional tailcap including a cool blue one, 2 glass lens, switch, led centering gasket / ring, O-rings, and a holster. Overall it's a nice little budget AA - 14500 flashlight but it uses PWM for all modes includng High. I have never seen a light and driver before using PWM for high mode.
