Switchelectronic side

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 SMO's main job is to focus and project light from the source. It does this into a defined beam pattern. The coating is thin and applied to the lens surface. It cuts reflections and boosts light transmission. The electronic switches may have a higher chance of standby drain.
