Cree is a US-based LED manufacturer. It is well-regarded for its high-quality products and innovation in lighting. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources. Flashlights use the smooth reflector when long-range light is important. This includes searchlights and thrower flashlights. The AR coating of the lens helps to reduce these reflections. It does this by changing the lens surface's refractive index.

The C8+ XPL uses multiple switches. The switches' placement and design determine this. They allow for one-handed operation. Mechanical switches often offer tactile feedback. Users can feel a distinct click or resistance when they press the switch. A simple press or click of the rear switch turns the flashlight on or off. This removes the need for complex button combinations or multi-step processes.
