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 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. The flashlight has electronic switches. They have many benefits and extra features compared to mechanical switches.

The built-in thermal control adjusts brightness output to prevent overheating.

The "6" in the IP65 rating shows the level of protection. It's against solid objects, like dust and foreign particles. The IP65 rating indicates that the flashlight has a protection against water jets.

According to the ANSI/NEMA FL1 Standard, we measure the performance of the BLF GT4 flashlight 30 seconds after switching on the light. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
