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 SMO's main job is to focus and project light from the source. It does this into a defined beam pattern. The coating is thin and applied to the lens surface. It cuts reflections and boosts light transmission. Mechanical switches are usually robust. They resist wear and tear and work in many environments. The rear switch is at the end of the T01s flashlight. It helps you hold it securely.

Accessories, package contents

Package contentsclip

spare o-ring

The clip is very helpful. It lets you quickly access your flashlight while keeping your hands free for other tasks. When gripping the flashlight with the lanyard around your wrist, it gives a more secure hold. It also gives a more stable hold. When using spare O-rings, follow the maker's instructions. Use their guidelines for proper installation.

According to the ANSI/NEMA FL1 Standard, we measure the performance of the T01s flashlight 30 seconds after switching on the light. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
