Cree is widely regarded as a reputable LED manufacturer. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The primary function of the smooth reflector (SMO) is to precisely focus and project the light emitted from the light source into a defined beam pattern. The AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens.

The multiple switch configuration on the EC35 flashlight can be a useful option, providing additional versatility and convenience in operating the flashlight. The electronic switches may have a higher likelihood of standby drain compared to mechanical switches. Mechanical switches are typically built with robust construction, making them resistant to wear and tear, and capable of enduring various environmental conditions. The placement of the rear switch at the end of the EC35 flashlight facilitates a secure forward grip.

The power source of the EC35 flashlight is 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery, providing reliable and long-lasting energy for optimal performance. A battery indicator is a feature that provides information about the remaining power level of the flashlight's battery. The EC35 cannot charge batteries directly. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. When the flashlight detects that the voltage of the battery has dropped to a certain threshold, it automatically reduces or cuts off the power output.

The thermal protection feature helps prevent overheating, which can be detrimental to the flashlight's performance, battery, and overall safety. The "8" in the IPx8 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress.
