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 OP reflector is a specific type of reflector, it is commonly used in flashlights. The AR coating of the lens helps to reduce these reflections. It does this by changing the lens surface's refractive index. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features. They allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight.
