There is no 'magic' number for the limit of validity of the 2 packages. Take 1 keV as an indication. In both case the produced particles are tracked down to zero kinetic energy. But the treatement of low energy particles is different : Low Energy model tries to take into account the shell structure of the atomic electrons, while 'standard' neglects it.
If your simulation is sensitive to such details, use LowEnergy extension. Otherwise, standard is simpler and more efficient.
