Cree is a US-based LED manufacturer. It is well-regarded for its high-quality products and innovation in lighting. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources. The designers of the 360X3 incorporated an orange peel reflector to enhance the beam. It does this by diffusing the light from the light source. The AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens.

The 360X3 flashlight has multiple switch options. They can be useful, adding versatility and convenience to using the flashlight. The flashlight has electronic switches. They have many benefits and extra features compared to mechanical switches. Mechanical switches are usually robust. They resist wear and tear and work in many environments.

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 360X3 is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at, this makes it hard for them to concentrate. The SOS flashes Morse code so you can signal for help when needed.
