Technical Details
Item Weight: 1.6 ounces
Product Dimension: 4.3*2*1.6 inches


Thoughts:

The light arrived in a very well no frills packaging with the light itself inside a bubble wrap along with its metal clip installed which
was sitting in a black foam for additional cushioning, has 2 spare O-rings, and the user manual.



The TG06S has smooth black anodizing. It has very good CNC and with all the logo of the manufacturer as well as the model number of the
light can be clearly read. It has a subtle diamond knurling in both the body and tail to provide good grip. It has a smooth hexagonal
cut ring on the base of its head to provide anti rolling for when the light flat sitted. It can stand both from the head or the tail on an even surface.



It has a good green glow ring placed by the lens for easy finding in the dark.

Both the threads on this light are squared and smooth, very well lubed as well. The tail thread is also anodized for a mechanical lockout use.

The clip has a SS finish and can both be installed in the tail or the head end for facing the light outwards depending on your purpose. It is very secure and tight
which is relatively hard to accidentaly remove.

The TG06S can be powered either by a AA battery or a 14500 cell, althought the highest lumen output can only be achieved when using a 14500 cell.

The operation modes of this light is pretty simple and straight forward. The light uses a standard reverse-clicky in the tail which utilizes full and partial presses.
Output is ordered H -> M -> L -> ML. There is no mode memory so the light always activates on High. Strobe is activated by double clicking when on at any mode. Thers is
also a slight split second delay whilst changing modes.

The TG06s is moderately Throwy. The TG06S uses a domed XP-G2 combined with a polished reflector so the hot spot is relatively tight with a slightly defined corona that transitions nicely
with a reasonable amount of spill.

The color temperature of the light is Daylight at around 5000-5500k.

Overall, the TG06S is a very well built AA/14500 edc. It is very compact and light, very bright as well as a good spacing for the modes brightness levels. Definitely a good value for money
in terms of finish, performance and build quality. Another awesome light from Thorfire!

Below are creative shots of the light (I will be editing this post and uploading beam shots later):

Sacrileizei, thank you for the coupon code! As a result, I just snagged an extra copy of my favorite EDC flashlight from Amazon for $8.25! I will try to monitor your Facebook page occasionally from my wife's account to see what is new. Thanks again!

 

FWIW, I always carry my Thorfire TGO6s in this flashlight holder to keep my pockets free.

I used LKCX-8MYRMF-PW5SP3 for 3 of them- thank you so much! Thorfires S70 and the Q8 build have held a place in my heart for some time, hope these are as good.

Wow I didn’t know that you can purchase multiple lights for 1 code. But, good for you, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed as I sure am not! Cheers!
