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 HEX62 uses a smooth reflector. A smooth reflector is different from an orange peel reflector. It has a polished, mirror-like surface. The AR coating of the lens helps to reduce these reflections. It does this by changing the lens surface's refractive index.

The HEX62 uses multiple switches. The switches' placement and design determine this. They allow for one-handed operation. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features. They allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight. Mechanical switches often offer tactile feedback. Users can feel a distinct click or resistance when they press the switch. The rear switch of the HEX62 is rugged and durable. It can withstand harsh conditions and repeated use.

USB rechargeable flashlights are more popular now. They are popular because they are convenient and sustainable. LVP (Low Voltage Protection) is designed to protect the battery. It stops over-discharging, which can reduce battery life or cause permanent damage.

This flashlight doesn't have built-in temperature control. The flashlight has an IPx8 rating. It can withstand being submerged in water beyond 1 meter for a prolonged period. The manufacturer specifies this.

According to the ANSI/NEMA FL1 Standard, we measure the performance of the HEX62 flashlight 30 seconds after switching on the light. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
