Cree is widely regarded as a reputable LED manufacturer. Warm, white light is generally more comfortable. It's also less harsh on the eyes than cool, white light. The advantage of the orange peel (OP) reflector is that it can minimize glare and reduce eye strain. The AR coating on the lens maximizes light transmission. This makes the flashlight more effective in darker environments. The electronic switches may have a higher chance of standby drain.
