Cree is widely regarded as a reputable LED manufacturer. The orange peel (OP) reflector is a specific type of reflector commonly used in flashlights. The AR coating of the lens helps to mitigate these reflections by altering the refractive index of the lens surface. The TA15 uses multiple switches. Depending on the placement and design of the switches, a multiple switch configuration can allow for one-handed operation.

Mechanical switches often offer tactile feedback, allowing users to feel a distinct click or resistance when the switch is pressed. The rear switch allows for quick and easy momentary activation or constant-on activation, enabling rapid response and tactical maneuvering.
