Nichia LEDs are renowned for their exceptional color quality, high efficiency, and long lifespan. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. With the smooth reflector of the TIP CRI, the beam tends to have a well-defined hotspot at the center, which provides a concentrated beam of light for long-range applications. The AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens. This can increase the overall brightness and efficiency of the TIP CRI flashlight. The TIP CRI has electronic switch. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features that allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight. This may include setting specific modes, configuring brightness levels, or enabling unique functions according to individual preferences.

240 lm can provide a decent amount of brightness and be suitable for many everyday tasks, it may not be sufficient for certain scenarios or individuals with specific requirements. 810 cd can provide a reasonable level of luminous intensity for many everyday lighting tasks. The throw is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. Candela per lumen (cd/lm) is a measure of a flashlight's beam intensity relative to its total luminous flux or output. It quantifies the concentration of light emitted by the flashlight in relation to the total amount of light produced.

In some cases, a flashlight with a higher CRI may offer a more natural and pleasant viewing experience, as it can better reveal the true colors of the surroundings. This can be advantageous when using a flashlight for extended periods or in situations where visual comfort is desired. With a CRI of 90 the TIP CRI flashlight can provide true-to-life color representation, making it ideal for applications where accurate color discrimination is crucial.
