Cree is a US-based LED manufacturer. It is well-regarded for its high-quality products and innovation in lighting. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources. The TA10 has a smooth reflector. The right reflector focuses light well. It gives you a better hotspot, and it throws better. 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. Rear switches are common on tactical flashlights. Law enforcement, military, and self-defense personnel use them.

A flashlight's modes are different output settings or brightness levels. They can be chosen to meet different needs and preferences. The TA10 is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at, this makes it hard for them to concentrate. The SOS flashes Morse code so you can signal for help when needed.
