    Haven't bought one in awhile, but my favorite brand is also zebralight. Its probably the brand that i have the most of as well although that likely isn't fair because i bought quite a few brands before coming to the conclusion that it was the light that best ft my needs. Since i have only had...

    how many of you play with your lights still?

    I also use my flashlight instead of turning on the lights. My holstered light is actually easier to reach than the light switch. I jut call that practical not playing....

    Need a Flood light

    Zebralight H604c is my preference for a flood. The H600F is floody as well, but it does have a brighter enter. I agree wit h just putting a diffuser on one of your other lights as well.

    Need help deciding….Armytek Viking/Predator Pro V2.5 or V3.0?

    i have both versions and my preference is for the programmable as i like to start off in low. If you want it for a tactical light or for checking things out in the yard and don't care about the low settings, then go for the newer version. As for the differences between the predator and the...

    List Your Favorite Light You Have Had For More Than 2 Years Than You Use Nightly

    I also carry and use a Zebralight daily, an H600. I use it for a worklight/headlamp as well as a handheld. The other EDC is a Leupold i converted to a P60 with a floody quad that is used for a quick access light. During School, i have a H604c that i sue for getting the kids ready for school...

    Zebralight headlamp H600w, H600c, or H600d

    I have an older h600W version and also the newer H600Fc that i picked up used. IMO the tint is better on the H600c. Although i like the F, I would prefer a clear lens because you can always stick film/scotch tape to make a clear lens more floody. From what i understand, the clear lens...

    What Happened to Zebralight R&D?

    From what i understand, while Zebralight designs its lights here in the United States, they are primarily made in China. I'm sure the formation of new lights requires travelling back and forth btween the two countries and the china virus kinda shut that down. That would also explain why they...

    What are peoples opinion of Olight brand lights.

    I have a few Olight flashlights, the oldest being a S30 titanium i got quite awhile back. They are okay lights and it still works fine to this day and finds itself in the EDC rotaation every so often. Still, its slightly a bit longer than the Zebralights i generally EDC.

    When is enough, enough?

    Once you realize you only have so many hands (or heads in the case of headlamps) and all the areas you'd like to have a light hang out in case you aren't carrying the required light at that area, then adding more just doesn't make that much more sense. It helps that i tend to go High CRI...

    ZL SC600w vs SC600Fc beam profile

    the SC600w will throw further for seeing distances. You can put scotchtape on it or make something to diffese the light if you want the floodbeam profile. You might consider going for the H series though for hands free capability...

    What lights do you consider the most epic or influential on your hobby

    Maglight AA when i was youngr, this started the fascination with extremely portable lights, even had the "candle" mode Leupold LED line, they were expensive for what they were, but so much light in such a little package that was extremely waterproof. This started the search for rechargeable...

    Deliver in forest regularly, could use some recommendations

    I would second the thrower/headlight combo. I personally like Zebralights as far as headlamps go. For the furthest throwing zebralight for spotting the mutts a good distance away, go with the reflector/regular glass version H600(w). A Malkoff Hounddog would be a good thrower, but there are a...

    Charger for an 18650

    I'll second Xtar charger. I think they have a few models that will charge from a USB. They also show the capacity of the charge which i find helpful. I started with the VC4 and now i have two other models. The VC2 model runs off a USB and also will charge NiMh (AAs)

    Zebralight questions

    Zebralights are my favorite light. I prefer the headlamps, but the regular flashlights are just as reliable. Very tough lights!

    "Bathroom-trip in the night" flashlight recommendation?

    gotta agree on the Zebralight on low levels like a bunch of people have already, however, I would recommend the H53 instead. You will no longer miss the toilet either, as its angled perfectly for holding in your fist while peeing (a guy thing obviously). ...

    Need a warm/neutral, floody light for photography

    If its close range, i would suggest a mule. Personally, i have been using my Zebralllight H604c to light rooms inside while taking room shots. Any mule will do though, i think overready makes a mule if you have a P60 format light. Another option might be a triple or quad which will reach out...

    The Official Zebralight Thread .

    Personally i love mules for many purposes. I've been using mules since i got my H602w a few years ago. A even consistant flood is great for all closeup tasks, but sometimes you need some throw. My current H604c and H600Fc are almost as good as my SC64c tintwise, at least for me. I got the H600Fc...

    When is enough, enough?

    Nah, you can't just make up categories. All of my lighting needs are met currently (actually with backups in most departments). I keep looking at the market though to see if there are any developments that would change that of course, but not so far. I had shifted to trying to get everything...

    When is enough, enough?

    It probably took about 2 to 3 years to 1) figure out and get lights for all task categories and then 2) to optimize the search to get the best light for each category and to focus on the category most important. After that, I have just looked at the newer models and make the determination if...

    Filters - Which Color for Which Use?

    Some UV emitters come off as blue as well and are used for various purposes. Straight blue light will also act as a blacklight making whites stand out. Pretty cool IMO.
