Cree is widely regarded as a reputable LED manufacturer. Warm, white light is generally more comfortable. The SMO's main job is to focus and project light from the source. The AR coating is thin and applied to the lens surface. Mechanical switches are usually robust. The rear switch is at the end of the T01s flashlight.

The T01s flashlight's power source is 1 x 14500 Li-Ion or 1 x AA NiMH battery. The T01s cannot charge batteries. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. Use a protected battery, because this flashlight lacks low voltage protection (LVP). This light does not have temperature control feature. The "8" in the IPx8 rating means the highest level of protection.
