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. The SMO's main job is to focus and project light from the source. It does this into a defined beam pattern. The AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens. The TK22 v2 flashlight has multiple switch options. They can be useful, adding versatility and convenience to using the flashlight.

The electronic switches may have a higher chance of standby drain. Mechanical switches are usually robust. They resist wear and tear and work in many environments. The rear switch is at the end of the TK22 v2 flashlight. It helps you hold it securely.
