Cree is widely regarded as a reputable LED manufacturer. Warm, white light is generally more comfortable. It's also less harsh on the eyes than cool, white light. The SMO's main job is to focus and project light from the source. It does this into a defined beam pattern. The electronic switches may have a higher chance of standby drain.

With 1600 lm, the 1102 flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. The 62500 cd flashlight is intensely bright. It can provide great visibility and boost safety in low-light or dark places. The throw is the distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. Candela per lumen (cd/lm) measures a flashlight's beam intensity. It compares this to its total luminous flux or output.

A flashlight's modes are different output settings or brightness levels. They can be chosen to meet different needs and preferences. Designers created the strobe function to produce a disorienting or attention-grabbing effect. The SOS code starts three short signals. Then, three long signals follow. Finally, there are three short signals again.
