Cree is a US-based LED manufacturer. It is well-regarded for its high-quality products and innovation in lighting. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources. Flashlights use the smooth reflector when long-range light is important. This includes searchlights and thrower flashlights. The AR coating of the lens helps to reduce these reflections. It does this by changing the lens surface's refractive index.

The KR10 uses multiple switches. The switches' placement and design determine this. They allow for one-handed operation. The flashlight has electronic switches. They have many benefits and extra features compared to mechanical switches. Mechanical switches often offer tactile feedback. Users can feel a distinct click or resistance when they press the switch. The rear switch is at the end of the KR10 flashlight. It helps you hold it securely.
