Cree LEDs are trusted by lighting professionals and have gained a strong reputation for quality and performance. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. The TK20R uses a smooth reflector. Unlike the textured surface of an orange peel reflector, a smooth reflector has a polished, mirror-like surface. The AR coating on the lens maximizes light transmission, making the flashlight more effective in darker environments.

The TK20R uses multiple switches. Depending on the placement and design of the switches, a multiple switch configuration can allow for one-handed operation. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features that allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight. Mechanical switches often offer tactile feedback, allowing users to feel a distinct click or resistance when the switch is pressed. With a rear switch of TK20R flashlight, the operation of the flashlight is often straightforward and easy to grasp.
