Cree LEDs are commonly used in a wide range of lighting applications. Their products are trusted by lighting professionals and have gained a strong reputation for quality and performance. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. With the smooth reflector of the K65, the beam tends to have a well-defined hotspot at the center, which provides a concentrated beam of light for long-range applications.

The AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens. This can increase the overall brightness and efficiency of the K65 flashlight. The K65 has electronic switch. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features that allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight. This may include setting specific modes, configuring brightness levels, or enabling unique functions according to individual preferences.

You may need an external charger to keep your battery going.

LVP (Low Voltage Protection) is designed to protect the battery from being over-discharged, which can lead to reduced battery life or even permanent damage. The built-in thermal control automatically adjusts brightness output to prevent overheating. The "8" in the IPx8 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress.
