I would like to see that there is a possibility to cover the charging port.

A piece of heat-shrink tube in that area of the head can be used.
Make a hole on it, so you can rotate it when you need to use the charging port, and it will protect the charging port.

I don’t see many permament covering options as it is in the opposite direction of the switch.

I was more thinking weather influence on the brass, patina and corrosion?

Cut a piece of diffusion film and slap it on there.

Sticky, yet peels right off and doesn’t leave residue.

Today I decided to open the bezel of my Skilhunt M200 and contrarily to what I mentioned above, and also corroborating what Ryley posted above, the MCPCB of this flashlight is round and has a bunch of wires connected to it.

Narmattaru reviewed this light and confirms that turbo is timed, not heat controlled.

I also decided to mod this light to end the slight tint shift that this light has. So, I opted to use a pebbled TIR that I had laying arond , instead of using DC-Fix.
I kept the black gasket around the LED, and I put a black o-ring a between the TIR and the bezel (it has a blue one originally, but it was causing some blueish shift in the beam with the TIR).
Also, I am not using the glass lens, there was no space for it with the TIR.

Here is how the beam looks with the TIR:

And this is a comparison with:
a) Convoy S2, 5000K Nichia, OP reflector >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> b) Wuben TO50R, 4 x LH351D, quad TIR optic

It has, obviously, less throw, less intensity, it is floodier, but has no artifacts on the beam!

Any chance you know what TIR you used? Or, maybe have a spare of the same one laying around you could measure?
