Luminus has established a positive reputation as a reliable LED manufacturer. Warm, white light is generally more comfortable. It's also less harsh on the eyes than cool, white light. If you need long-range light, get a flashlight with a smooth reflector. It will have more throw distance. The AR coating of the lens helps to reduce these reflections. It does this by changing the lens surface's refractive index.

The M26C SST40 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. The rear switch of the M26C SST40 is usually operated with the thumb or finger. This makes it easy to reach and use.
