thanks, good review, not sure if i actually need it though still. Impulse buy
I actually find the "bump" to be quite useful. As you will see in the pics below the lanyard that I use on mine, in conjunction with the clip, suits my needs perfectly!
The light and the lanyard...
As you can see in the pics above I have placed the clip right next to my 2.75" paracord lanyard.
The SC600 in my cargo pocket...
The light rides comfortably in this position, daily. The clip and lanyard are positioned perfectly to allow easy access.
The light secured in my hand...
By placing my little finger into the loop of the paracord and then cinching the bead up, the light fits my hand like the proverbial glove. It is also very secure!
Oops! Whew! This light is not going anywhere...
So you see, I like the bump and I love the SC600!

My SC600 (standard) is being posted tomorrow :-)
Yay. Hopefully it will be a good upgrade from a NiteCore EZAA R5.
I think this is my next light. I'm just not sure if neutral is best for me. I like the idea of neutral, I understand the pros. But my D10 Tribute R2 is cool blue (i've read on here around 6k color temp) and I love the tint inside and out. I also have a Klarus XT10 and that looks very green to me, even outside. On the zebra light site, for the SC600 XML 750 it says "LED: Cree XM-L Cool White (Norminal CCT 6300K) " and for the SC600 XML Neutral White it says, "LED: Cree XM-L Neutral White (Norminal CCT 4200K)" How is Norminal CCT different from normal color temp? So, if the temp is lower, at 4200k, that would look "cooler" or more "blue" right? Why does this sound backwards to me. I think I want to go for the cool white at 6300k temp, but I've always thought "pure / neutral white" would give me the best color. I just don't want it to look "orange" or yellowish (incandescent) too much.

Thank you for the great review! I am new to this forum and have been looking through tons of posts looking for my first flashlight and I think this is the one. I will probably order one today. Thank you everyone for their input!

CPF-Wiki entry on ANSI white tint bins. It has an excellent chart from DFiorentino, showing all the Cree tint bins (and color temperatures).
Would it take Panasonic 3100mAh cell ? Since it got built in over-discharging protection with 2.7V cutoff feature, so using non protected or protected cell is kinda self preference right ?
ok, thx for the link varuscelli, seems the more I read, the more confusing but its fine, at least one of the post stated it can use panasonic 3100mAh 18650
what would be a good thrower light in its class then again, i only need to throw about 100 yards.
My SC600 arrived today. My first thought was "what a tiny light"... which is precisely what I wanted in a 1x 18650 light. So now I have a truly pocketable 18650 powerhouse.
It's smaller yet brighter than my last generation 18650 lights... Kudos to Zebralight for coming up with such a great light.
thank you for taking the time to take detailed pictures. the clip looks weak, don't you think? clips that do this sort of half clip around the body never inspire confidence-otherwise great looking light. zebralight ranks high on the must have list for good reason i suppose.
I am assuming the light ships with the clip pre-attached.Can it be removed without scratching the body ?
I've taken it off and put it on several times, no scratches so far.
Is there another torch this size,with this power,but a better thrower ?
If you want to consider larger lights (especially larger heads), there there are certainly ones with more throw for equivalent output. Or go for lights with smaller emitters, where heads of this size can translate to better throw (but with less relative output). Check out some of my other reviews for comparisons of size, output and throw.
This gotta be on top of my to buy list
selfbuilt hi. Does the light turn off at the end of a runtime test or does it step down to moonlight mode first? If it turns off, is this because of protection circuit in the battery or because of the light itself? Thanks dude. :thumbsup
When was the last time you washed your feet?
As the battery depletes, the voltage drops, so the brightness steps down.
At a certain low voltage level, the protection circuitry inside the battery kick in, so the light will switch off, but normally this has occurred well above the moonlight mode...
It's pretty rare that a light would jump to moon mode rather than just shut-off. My Thrunte TN31 is only recent example I can think of that does that.
