LPE optics is a new cutting edge technology! It has hybrid reflectors combined with new electronics and brighter LED’s. The hybrid reflector is unique in that it throws the light with not only a sharply focused spotlight, but also a softer area light. Its smooth reflective surface, combined with a secondary orange peel texture lower in the cone, creates a wider beam of light. When paired with our new electronics and brighter LED’s, we’ve created an outstanding flashlight.
