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 smooth reflector creates a well-defined hotspot at the center. This hotspot provides a concentrated beam for long-range use. The coating is thin and applied to the lens surface. It cuts reflections and boosts light transmission.

Mechanical switches are usually robust. They resist wear and tear and work in many environments. The rear switch of the E01 is rugged and durable. It can withstand harsh conditions and repeated use.

100 lm can provide a decent amount of brightness and be suitable for many everyday tasks. 400 cd can make things quite bright. It's enough for many everyday tasks. The throw is the distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. The candela per lumen (cd/lm) ratio can be used to determine if a flashlight has a spot or flood type beam.
