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 designers of the TK01 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 TK01 flashlight has multiple switch options. They can be useful, adding versatility and convenience to using the flashlight. The electronic switches may have a higher chance of standby drain. Mechanical switches are usually robust. They resist wear and tear and work in many environments. The rear switch of the TK01 is rugged and durable. It can withstand harsh conditions and repeated use.
