Thread: is Zebralight actually releasing the S5310 this month ?

    Default is Zebralight actually releasing the S5310 this month ?

    The zebralight Product Comparison sheet still says the release date is 2/2012. Have any of you heard anything ? I use to get the newsletter, but they recently stopped sending me them, on 2 different e-mail accounts. Not sure what that's all about.

    I hope they will. It looks like a very interesting light, and a nice alternative to the Nitecore EA4 which I consider buying.

    I wouldn't count on it, they still list the SC600 MKII as 1/2013. Those dates don't seem to have any bearing on reality.

    The spreadsheet says 2013, I think the OP just mistyped.

    The battle of the stubby AA lights begins, Nitecore has gotten the jump on most companies with the Ea4 860 lumen

    whos next? Zebralight has models planned but haven't produced either model yet. Quark has a prototype that runs on 3aa, that has me excited.

    My EA4 arrived yesterday, and I really like the form factor. I hope more companies jump on the AA train.

    I like my EA4 but it's becoming more of a novelty item for me. When Zebralight gets going on this S5310, I'm sure I will use it almost daily! NEED those low and moonlight modes.
    GOOD TINT!

    Ahh, they did change the date. That would be cool to see that light soon!

    I'm getting more and more excited about this light! With the SC600 MkII out of the way, maybe the focus will be on getting this one out. I wish we at least knew the shape of the light.

    Oops, I did mistype. I definitely meant 2013. I will edit that.

    I see zebralight posted the SC600 MKII today on the page.. Hopefully that means within the next week we will see the S5310.

    P.S. I started a thread a couple weeks back talking about how zebralights q50 was a marketing ploy. The point get other companies to release a 4AA light first, then zebralight comes in and blows that product out of the water. So the Q50 was dropped, then the S5310 was mentioned (actually I believe it was listed on the product sheet before the Q50 was dropped) with the same or better specs. I swear they had this planned out ... I don't know business well, so this is probably not the case at all, but I love speculating.

    WOW! Never though of this...who knows. Congrats if they had that planned from the start!

    Fail to see how that answers the question given its 2 years old and not in the same language as this forum.

    I have just heard back from zebralight and they have said "next month".

    Hey all, Just thought you might like to know Zebralight is "claiming" the s5310 will be released this month (april). I sent them an e-mail last week and was told to look for it this month. Here's to hoping they keep their word for once.

    They're just building up a supply of these and Q50's to handle the rush of orders

    I have been looking for a compact "powerful" light that take AA battery for a while now. The Zebralight S5310 and the upcoming Eagletac GX25A3 look very promising.

    I like the look and build of the Eagletac. But owning a Zebralight SC80, I prefer Zebralight's levels and UI better. I need to see what the light will look like. May end up getting both.

    The UI will definitely make the decision almost impossible for me! It's the best there is IMO.

    The EA4 really dampened my excitement for this light. Since Nitecore refuses to give it a lower output mode, like the EA8 (according to Nitecore, it will cut into EA8 sales) This Zebralight still has a chance with me. At this point though, I doubt it will come close to the throw available in the EA4 so I have to work hard to stay interested in the Zebra.

    I would have thought potential buyers would choose between a 4xAA and 8xAA flashlights based on runtimes, form factor, weight, maximum brightness etc. rather than being forced to choose based on which light provides a decent low mode!
    Seriously, sometimes I wonder if manufacturers look for creative explanations to pass off something they overlooked or if they really have these weird marketing strategies...

    The zebralight and the Nitecore are opposites, ones a thrower and ones most likely a flooder. I'm an ultra low low junkie, but I love the Nitecore Ea4, great price and great output.

    Looks like the Eagletac may hit the market before the Zebralight lol

    Have there been any pictures? Maybe the S5310 will be a thrower.
    Note to self, turn off flashlight when a plane is over head. Don't want them trying to land.

    No pictures. It will be floody like all of their lights.

    They haven't made a throwy light yet, if they stick to compact lights (and they do) it'll be floody

    You both make good points. So probably a AA version of the S6330.
