Cree, a US-based LED manufacturing company is a well-regarded LED manufacturer known for its high-quality products and innovation in the lighting industry. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources, particularly white light. The orange peel (OP) reflector is a specific type of reflector commonly used in flashlights. The AR coating of the lens helps to mitigate these reflections by altering the refractive index of the lens surface.

The MC11 uses multiple switches. Depending on the placement and design of the switches, a multiple switch configuration can allow for one-handed operation. Electronic switches on this flashlight provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches. Mechanical switches often offer tactile feedback, allowing users to feel a distinct click or resistance when the switch is pressed. The placement of the rear switch at the end of the MC11 flashlight facilitates a secure forward grip.
