Part 1 here.
This thread is discussion all things SC600 and SC600W
I'm thrilled with mine. The tint is annoyingly green and the mode selector a little confusing at times however the output on low and high is astonishing. An excellent light for my day bag.. Highly recommended :-)
Sent from my mobile using TapaTalk (so please excuse bad grammar & spelling!) :-)
i see absolutely no green in either one of my SC600w's. i wonder if some people got a bad tint, or if some people are just seeing the tints differently.
i really love the tint on mine. it's an ideal neutral white, in my opinion.
i like flashlights.
Where is a reputable place to buy one? I see most places are sold out/back ordered. Is ebay a safe place to buy one?
Hey guys, don't mind being more specific? Those who complained seeing green in the tint, are you talking about SC600 or SC600w?
My sc600 is a little greenish on low too when i compare it with my SC80 (very pure white), but it's the same with my PA40. It seems to be XML CW related.
Don't have tested SC600W.....yet

For me, I like this flashlight but the switch is the reason that will be the last zebralight I buy if they still continue this kind of swithch.
It's not easy to use in real life.
I know that many people feel happy with the new switch but not for me. It make my thumb pain.
I plan to use it as EDC.
But because of switch after I try for 2-3 days.
I keep it in box and never use it again.
(sorry for my English)

this post, "it seems they are probably no[t]".
Here was my remedy.
I looked around in one of my junk drawers and found these. You could call them either hard rubber or soft plastic. I don't know, but they are flexible. As you can see, they're called bumpers but I believe their intended use is as pads/feet to keep items from scratching or sliding on a surface.
The larger one, about 5/8in in diameter fit near perfectly. It adds just enough height to make the switching much easier to activate. But not enough that it would cause accidental activation, at least not in my opinion. The adhesive seems to be holding well enough. If it doesn't, I'll find another solution to keep it in place as I like it much better than stock. It takes away some of that "button" feel, but the switch works great just the same.
I took some pics so you can get a better idea what I'm talking about. I did these on my laptop. Not the best thing for making sure they look ok, so hope they come out.
"People don't plan to fail, they fail to plan."
has anyone tried modifying the reflector to a non-orange peel or adding an spherical lens so it can be a more focused beam?
I know I've seen pictures of the SC600W with the body engraving actually having the "W" after the 600, my "W" arrived from a dealer yesterday but it looks identical to the cool white, just has "SC600" engraved on it. Definitely a warm emitter, just no distinguishing markings. I'll have to put a label on the tailcap or something to tell them apart. I wonder if they ran out of correctly marked bodies or something...
I have a "regular" early SC600, and would like opinions on the dropping down modes as the battery drains feature. I'd probably carry mine more, but with the 18650, I'm not going to carry a spare cell, and don't want to be left with a dead light. Does it work well? How long does it give you in the lower levels as it's dropping? Not to compare apples and oranges, but I'm guessing it works like the HDS/Ra lights? I'm considering a new one, and would like your thoughts...
SC600w shipped today. I really like my cool 600 but I'm a neutral, warm guy at heart.
Just got my SC600 today. New stock at Illumination Gear. Fantastic light as far as I can tell.
My SC600W was an early order from November, and it does not have the "w" engraved on the body either. But, it does have the 5-min step down. love this light! first zebra, and first neutral flashlight. (I have a neutral spark headlamp that I love also)

Mine has the W, and I find the switch and UI to be a big plus. No problems with the switch at all.
The switch felt on the firm side when I received the light. With use it has definitely become more relaxed.
I just typed up a nice long post but once again..CPF fails.
The Ti clip is from Jason at Dark Sucks aka archer6817j. The foil is necessary to make contact between the body and tailcap. A more permanent solution could be a washer or ring of sorts that is the same diameter and width of the unanodized portion at the rear of the light when the tailcap is removed. It could be droped in the tailcap and should still allow tailcap lockout but seeing as that is of no concern to me, I'll be sticking with the aluminum foil for now at least. I'll let the photos do the rest of the talking.

This is my signature. They're many like it but this one is mine..
Wow that is a gorgeous clip, I use the stock clip for inside pocket carry in my Carhartt side pocket. For while not at work I have a Thor's hammer custom leather holster. Mine is cool white and I carry two spare batteries in my coat.
I'm glad I found CPF, I was beginning to think I was strange

Thanks CPF, thanks Think2x
Ordered Thursday morning, delivered Saturday afternoon.
Barely had time to charge up my leftover AW200 batteries that I kept from the Fenix TK11R2 I gave away for Christmas. The 2200s fit and work fine.
Initial reaction: indoors, on a white wall, tint seems very similar to my SC60W, which is to say, wonderful.
Love the new switch!
As to that Ti clip above, yikes that's beautiful!

I'm still a newbie to the flashlight world. I got a christmas bonus($100 AMEX gift card) and decided to purchase one of these with it. Ordered the neutral. Now I just need to decide which battery to order and which charger. Thinking cotton pickers, but I still haven't gotten a response if you can use it with a AC wall adapter that has a USB port on it.
