    So far ZL have a pretty good record of actually making and selling "planned" lights (with the exception of the "2xAA side-by-side" light, but I don't think they ever claimed it got past the "thinking about it" stage to the "yes we are going to make and sell these" stage.

    I believe more choice is usually better - a bit like the ZL UI gives you lots of choices of output (but is easy to quickly get the one you want).

    For the people who don't like thermal management there are choices/compromises to be made (by both manufacturers and buyers). Smaller lighter lights simply don't have the capacity to dissipate a lot of heat, so most reputable manufacturers are conservative and reduce max light output ALL the time, or they allow a higher initial output but reduce when it gets too hot to save the emitter (thermal management).

    Other choices are: allow the emitter to be degraded due to excessive heat; significantly increase the size and weight of the light to allow better heat disssipation.

    As buyers, we can weigh up all factors before buying a light.

    I do not buy all that many lights, but this light would be a must have for me. I like the sound of the q50 with 4aa's , but I think the 3aa light will be much more pocketable instead of the square light. I also just bought 16 new eneloops and a smart charger, all I need is for this light to be released.
    My only concern with the zebralight would be toughness. I flounder gig almost every weekend out of a kayak at night. This light will see plenty of salt water, I hope it can stand up.

    Remarkable how little buzz this is making, compared to the SC600 when the latter was announced. Maybe we're all so pleased with the way the SC600 turned out, we don't really need another more-or-less-the-same light with a much poorer form factor. I'm still psyched, especially with the 0.01 lumen L2, but I have to admit 3 AA's clunking around inside and containing less energy than a single 18650 which is barely bigger than a single AA ... I have to admit that does dampen my enthusiasm.

    I know I'm stating the obvious here, but there are way more people that use AA's. As a person who strictly uses AA/AAA Eneloops, the form factor of 3xAA is very appealing to me.

    This.....I have said it before the possible market of people that would use a AA light compared to Li-Ion light is easily 100 to 1 or even more.How many people "outside of this forum" that you know use Lithium Ion lights or Cr123 lights ..now how many of the other people use readily available AA lights or products. Outdoor sports people Hunters,Fisherman, hikers and campers would love a small packable AA light that would put out 750 or so lumens and not worry getting into a new battery format

    I am a tech geek, or, well, used to be... went to college for EE, etc etc and I didnt even know that universal Li-ions like 14500, 18650, etc existed until I came to this forum... and I am tempted to try them for there energy density but since I am already setup on AA so far I am planning to stick to that. About the only thing thats going to change my mind is when some 4x 18650 2,000+ lumen lights start becomming more affordable. To get in that range I think AA's would not be a good choice!

    Looks like you're in luck with the SC6330 3x18650 and 3 XM-L LEDs for a high of 2400 lumens! Will also run continuously for a YEAR on .09 lumens for when the SHTF moments in a doomsday scenario which is something everyone should be at least preparing for.

    I love Zebralight but I think they need to calm down on the hype of possibly-upcomming lights and work on getting more of their flagship models in stock. You know, the ones that gave them a name and reputation for awesome lights in the first place.
    GOOD TINT!

    I hope they give it 14500 support and maintain the feature I just posted about in the SC6330 thread: independent battery channels. I have quite a few orphaned eneloop sets and dislike making more of them and keep them in pairs.
    If they do this I might forget all about the Q50 and get this one instead.

    However, it's a bit unlikely. They list 1 - 3 x 18650's for the SC6330 but just 3 x AA for the SC5310.

    The notes at the right side of the spreadsheet does say "Programmable L2 (0.01-0.32Lm), Battery Indicator". I like low lows! Wonder how the battery indicator works?
    The circuit of S5310 might be three SC52's in parallel. Three AA batteries of S5310 might be also in parallel or independently operate like S6330.
    Programmable L2 and battery indicator of S5310 shall be similar to those of SC52.

    Looks like it won't be independent. In the battery column of S6330 it says "1–3" whereas for S5310 it's just "3". It probably made sense to make it so complicated for 18650s due to more dangers involved, which isn't much of an issue with 1.5 volt batteries in terms of both chemistry and temperatures. It's also cheaper than the new SC600 mk2 despite having the same max brightness—which is the highest I've seen for a mass-produced AA light, too. Even brighter than TK41! Way to go, ZL!

    I'm very interested in runtimes of this new light. If they're gonna be anywhere near the original SC600 on eneloops XX, I might end up getting SC5310 instead of SC600 mk2. Extra weight, sure, but more abuse-tolerant chemistry and the ability to run on primaries and leech off of other AA-powered appliances in case of an emergency is more important in my book. I just hope this light takes 5.5 volt on input just in case PowerGenix comes up with a new generation NiZn cells, because that would be really interesting.

    I guess they decided there wasn't much sense in doing it after all, especially since Nitecore had released EA4. If ZL holds true to their output promises, they've already beaten EA4 with 3xAA (good marketing potential there), and the only benefit of Q50 over S5310 at this point would be ~33% improvement in runtimes at the cost of square body profile. Round(-ish) is still more comfortable.

    What we need to do is convince Zebralight to make an SC600 sized light with 3 emitters and a TIR reflector.
