Cree is widely regarded as a reputable LED manufacturer. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. If long-range illumination and throw distance are the primary requirements, a flashlight with a smooth reflector may be more suitable. The AR coating of the lens helps to mitigate these reflections by altering the refractive index of the lens surface.

The TK15 UE uses multiple switches. Depending on the placement and design of the switches, a multiple switch configuration can allow for one-handed operation. The electronic switches may have a higher likelihood of standby drain compared to mechanical switches. Mechanical switches often offer tactile feedback, allowing users to feel a distinct click or resistance when the switch is pressed. The rear switch allows for quick and easy momentary activation or constant-on activation, enabling rapid response and tactical maneuvering.
