People know Luminus LEDs for their efficiency, brightness, color accuracy, and long lifespan. The color temperature choice depends on the light's use and personal taste. The WT01 Apollo 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. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features. They allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight.
