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. If you need long-range light, get a flashlight with a smooth reflector. It will have more throw distance. The electronic switches may have a higher chance of standby drain.

You mainly need a flashlight for basic tasks like finding keys or navigating in dimly lit areas. 380 lm can be enough. It can also be enough for occasional use around the house. 1020 cd can make things quite bright. It's enough for many everyday tasks. The throw distance is the farthest distance the flashlight can light an object. Candela per lumen (cd/lm) measures a flashlight's beam intensity.
