Luminus LEDs are known for their efficiency, brightness, color accuracy, and long lifespan. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. The P16 uses a smooth reflector. Unlike the textured surface of an orange peel reflector, a smooth reflector has a polished, mirror-like surface. The AR coating of the lens helps to mitigate these reflections by altering the refractive index of the lens surface.

The P16 uses multiple switches. Depending on the placement and design of the switches, a multiple switch configuration can allow for one-handed operation. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features that allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight. Mechanical switches often offer tactile feedback, allowing users to feel a distinct click or resistance when the switch is pressed. The rear switch of P16 is typically operated with the thumb or finger, making it easily accessible and convenient to use.
