Samsung LEDs are energy efficient. They save much energy compared to traditional lights. The color temperature choice depends on the light's use and personal taste. The EC35 Gen II uses a smooth reflector. A smooth reflector is different from an orange peel reflector. It has a polished, mirror-like surface. The AR coating on the lens maximizes light transmission. This makes the flashlight more effective in darker environments.

The EC35 Gen II uses multiple switches. The switches' placement and design determine this. They allow for one-handed operation. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features. They allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight. Mechanical switches often offer tactile feedback. Users can feel a distinct click or resistance when they press the switch. Rear switches are common on tactical flashlights. Law enforcement, military, and self-defense personnel use them.
