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 TIR lens makes the LED light collimated. It does this into efficient, well-controlled beams. These beams maximize the usable lumens in the target area. Mechanical switches are usually robust. They resist wear and tear and work in many environments. The rear switch is at the end of the NE02 flashlight. It helps you hold it securely.
