Cree LEDs are trusted by lighting professionals and have gained a strong reputation for quality and performance. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. With the smooth reflector, 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.

The multiple switch configuration on the TM06 flashlight can be a useful option, providing additional versatility and convenience in operating the flashlight. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features that allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight. Mechanical switches are typically built with robust construction, making them resistant to wear and tear, and capable of enduring various environmental conditions. The rear switch of TM06 is designed to be rugged and durable, capable of withstanding harsh conditions and repeated use.
