A smaller flashlight is easier to carry in a pocket, bag, or pouch. This makes it more convenient for everyday use or when you're on the go. The aluminium body of the MR15 has excellent thermal conductivity. This means it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components.

Switchdual electronic side

Lighting professionals trust Cree LEDs. Cree LEDs have gained a strong reputation for quality and performance. 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. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features. They allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight.

The throw is the distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. The candela per lumen (cd/lm) ratio can be used to determine if a flashlight has a spot or flood type beam.

A flashlight's modes are different output settings or brightness levels. They can be chosen to meet different needs and preferences. The flashlight has mode memory. It remembers the mode you were using when the light was last turned off. It stays in that mode when you turn it on again. The MR15 is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at, this makes it hard for them to concentrate.
