resource for most applications, Maglite’s new Spectrum Series colored and warm
white LED flashlights are optimal for certain settings. For example: Red
protects night vision, enhances contrast; blue is for low-light map
reading & forensics; green is good for nature-watching because animals
typically don’t react to it; and warm white reduces eye strain and makes
colors look more natural.
