XRE,  XPG,  XML stand for the package of LED.

Besides the models we just mentioned, there are also XRC, XPE, XPC, MCE, etc etc. Same package means same looking.  XRE has the smallest lighting angel, that leads to a long distance lighting area. XPG got a bigger core-area than XRE, XML got the best lighting angel and core-area. The lighting cups of these two models are larger than XRE, floodlight is better. Better floodlight means better LED flashlights.
