This 265 g flashlight is not very heavy. But, it is heavier than the average handheld flashlight. The best flashlight size depends on personal preference. It also depends on intended use and the specific features you want. The aluminium body of the XHP50.2 has excellent thermal conductivity. This means it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components. The HAIII coating resists corrosion well. It shields the aluminum from moisture, humidity, and other corrosive elements. The XHP50.2 flashlight comes in a stylish gray color.

Lighting professionals trust Cree LEDs. Cree LEDs have gained a strong reputation for quality and performance. The color temperature choice depends on the light's use and personal taste. The designers of the XHP50.2 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. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features. They allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight.
