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 smooth reflector creates a well-defined hotspot at the center. This hotspot provides a concentrated beam for long-range use. The AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens. Mechanical switches are usually robust. They resist wear and tear and work in many environments.
