Osram, a German lighting manufacturer is a well-known and respected LED manufacturer in the lighting industry. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources, particularly white light. The C5 has a smooth reflector. The properly focused smooth reflector gives you a more cohesive hotspot and therefore throws better. The Anti-Reflective coating is a thin optical coating applied to the surface of the lens to minimize reflections and improve light transmission. Electronic switches on this flashlight provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches.
