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 R25 uses a smooth reflector. A smooth reflector is different from an orange peel reflector. It has a polished, mirror-like surface. The AR coating on the lens maximizes light transmission. This makes the flashlight more effective in darker environments.

The R25 uses multiple switches. The switches' placement and design determine this. They allow for one-handed operation. Mechanical switches often offer tactile feedback. Users can feel a distinct click or resistance when they press the switch. Rear switches are common on tactical flashlights. Law enforcement, military, and self-defense personnel use them.
