Thread: Zebralight SC600 & SC600W discussion part 2

    Original post from g.p.

    This holster fits the SC600 perfectly and is well made. Really can't beat it for the price at Manafont - $5.20 SHIPPED!

    My reply:

    Got it a couple weeks ago from Manfont. Really nice sheath. And just $5.20 total, from Hong Kong to the USA.

    The SC600 in the new sheath is even slim enough to put in a coat pocket along with a cellphone.

    Thanks again for the recommendation.

    Hey TEEJ...any chance you or anyone else with both the SC600 and the SC600W could post beamshots of them side by side?

    Good choice. Better tint ( in my opinion ) & more lumens

    Thanks a bunch TEEJ! It does help quite a bit, especially since they are outdoor beamshots. Unfortunately for my wallet, now I'm thinking I should also get an SC600W in addition to the SC600 I just ordered.

    Well, I think I've gotten an aspherical SC600W now....here's a beam shot:

    I worked off of this idea and came up with a more permanent solution. Telephone wire after you cut and strip it (one strand)is pretty close to the same thickness as the clip.
    1. Cut a small section of phone wire
    2. strip out one strand and remove insulation from it
    3. wrap around 18650 battery to form shape
    4. lay it against the end of the sc600 body and trim to the same diameter
    5. solder ends together to complete the "ring"
    6. insert into tailcap
    7. solder in place.
    Works PERFECTLY.

    Picture of wire unstripped and stripped and performed.



    Wire ring soldered into tailcap, not a great pic but I'm sure you get the idea.


    No more worries of anything falling out during battery changes.

    Very nice work Jamie! That looks easy enough. Hopefully this will make a lot of sc600 owners very happy.

    I didn't know anyone had tailcap issues at all...news to me.

    My SC600 and SC600W springs, etc, feel solidly locked in place...even if I pull on them, they stay attached to the cap, etc ( I TRIED pulling on them BECAUSE of reading these posts...to see if mine might be loose too, etc...but, at least mine were solid.

    Were the loose ones from production a while ago?

    No defects, TEEJ, if you read back ~25 posts you will see they are trying to fit a clip under the tailcap, which causes a gap inside and has to be made up to regain contact. This is a permanent mod to allow the use of the tailcap clip.

    I tell ya, the tint on that SC600w looks very warm to me. I thought it was around 4,000K? Looks to warm for my likes. I love my Zebralight w's and c's. Is this a dud?

    I think the SC600W is SUPPOSED to look like that. It DOES show most colors better, dead leaves look the color of dead leaves, grass looks green, etc...so I like it...but I have both, and mix it up depending on what I need to SEE.

    It is advertised, to my knowledge, at 4200k. It's slightly cooler than both my sc51c and h51c (4000k) and about on par with my sc60w which is also supposed to be 4200k. The tint of the xpg in my sc60w is beautiful compared to the tint shift of the xml in the sc600w. If you haven't picked up a sc60w yet, I'd suggest you do so before they are sold out. I know I will be grabbing a few more before then.

    What is it you like better about the SC60W compared to the SC600W, other than the more compact and lighter-weight form?

    If you over look the smaller form factor then it would have to be the tint. It's nice and even throughout the entire beam while the tint on my sc600w shifts colors. This alone isn't a reason to leave the sc600w home, IMHO. I mostly prefer the smaller size. They both have their places in my EDC rotation and I will continue to carry and use them both. FYI... I've been known to be a tint snob.

    I guess you could go wrong if 260 lumens from the SC60W is not enough light for your uses, vs 640 lumens for the SC600W, etc?

    Actually, the brightness of the SC51c is enough for me. But it will not burn for long.

    I took my SC600 camping this week. It was the most useful tool I had. I'll post up pics later but the 18650's lasted so long I just put it up somewhere on medium output to act as a campsite floodlight so the kids could see where they were playing after dark. It lit up an entire large camping area.

    Cheers

    Tail standing on low is the perfect night light for the kids while camping or at a hotel as well.

    Ok Guys, I just bought my First SC600 off the Marketplace yesterday and I must say Im a little intimidated about stepping up to the whole 18650 battery scene. I also ordered some batteries and charger from battery junction but wanted to ask and make sure they will work ok in the light.

    Here are the 18650's http://www.batteryjunction.com/ultrafire-18500.html

    H
    ere is the Charger http://www.batteryjunction.com/wf-139-.html

    I
    m really excited about getting this light. I was hunting for the Perfect EDC light and didnt want to look at anything but an AA or a small 123 based light. But I already have an SC51 so that takes care of the aa light, and I an HDS which takes care of the 123. So I took the plunge and in heading to big boy territory.

    I have also been doing alot of reading on the forum about this light. Any advice to a new 18650 guy.

    Thanks in advance.

    I love this site and hate it at the same time. Everytime I log in, I end up wanting/buying a new light. hahaha
