    Zebralight UI Question

    I own many Zebra's and I am very familiar with their UI... I have never gone into the G5/G6/G7 programming modes as I find the standard UI to be sufficient for my needs. I would like to find out if it's possible to program a ZL to be a reading light for my mother-in-law... there is no way she...

    Good CRI Lantern

    I am looking a decent lantern that runs on 18650 cells... I don't have any specific specs other than good value, neutral/warm tint, and decent CRI (80+).

    14500 in 2020 - Where to buy?

    It seems like the 14500 cell is not as popular as it once was... I still use them quite frequently in a couple Zebralights and a classic FourSevens neutral tint. I will stick with the protected button-tops... what is the best cell to get and vendor to purchase from? I care most about long-term...

    Streamlight USB Rechargeable 18650

    Has anyone used these 18650s with a built-in MicroUSB charge port? Is it safe? Are they lower capacity to make room for the charging circuit?

    Tritum Glow Fob for Attaching to Flashlight

    I would like to hang a glow fob on my SC600IV Plus... I don't need anything fancy, just something to help find the light in the dark. I would like it to be small and durable, with a finish that won't wear or flake off... and of course as inexpensive as possible. If a tritium fob is not...

    SC600 MKIV Plus vs HI

    I am strongly considering one of these lights... I have many Zebralights, but nothing larger than the SC62... I would like another ZL for backyard use that has more reach and output than my SC62w. I am starting this thread specifically for comparison between these two lights... hopefully once...

    N-Light B3 Replacement

    My N-Light B3 SS neutral is getting a little old... I really like the size, clip, and classy look... the electronic switch is a little weird, but I still prefer it over a twisty... the 2-modes provide a simple UI with two useful light levels... a AAA is not my EDC, so it doesn't need to to do...

    What is Zebralight working on?

    It seems like it has been a long time since I have read about anything new from ZL... other than maybe a new emitter/lens offering on an existing light... it seems like the AA line is due for an update (SC5 specs in the H52 and SC52 format).

    Best 10440 for Olight I3E

    I just got a new silver I3E that I intend to use as a "just for fun" pocket rocket with a 10440. Based on some information found in this forum, it appears that the Efest IMR 10440 350mAh Flat Top will fit and works well... does anyone have a better option? I will probably buy from

    SC600w MKIII HI vs EA4w

    I am considering an eventual purchase of a SC600w MKIII HI... the light it would be replacing as a "compact thrower" is my EA4w... I love the EA4's beam for its size and I actually like the switch and interface for my purposes... I have several other ZL's, so I am very familiar with its UI as...

    Do I need an XP-L In My Kit?

    Trying to put together a small kit for a trip I am taking to the desert... using as much stuff as possible that I already have. Already have a host (1x18650 or 2x18650) with aspheric head, a "regular" head, a neutral XM-L2 pill, a warm XM-L2 pill, and a neutral de-domed XP-G2 pill... I am...

    XP-G2 Output Question

    What is the theoretical output of an XP-G2 powered by 1x18650 with a 1.8A driver? And what is the approximate throw that can be achieved with this LED/Driver and a typical aspheric lens? How hard can the XP-G2 be reliably driven in a typical P60 module within a typical host?

    Dereelight DBS-T Pill

    Is there someone out there that can build me a P60 pill with modern specs for max output/throw using the DBS-T head? Maybe with an XP-L Neutral... or whatever would work best... I can operate it with 2x18650 or 1x18650. Single cell is preferred since runtime is not a big concern, but two cell...

    Nitecore MT10A Switch, Beam & Tint

    Does anyone know specifically how the "tactical momentary" works? Does it always come on at the last level used? Meaning if I have it set on Turbo, the momentary will always activate Turbo? What is the beam profile, compared to other popular lights like the SC63w? Can someone point me to beam...

    Zebralight's Customer Base

    I own a collection of ZL's and over the past several years I have watched their product line expand into a rather extensive set of options... Assuming that this means they are selling well, it makes me wonder who is the customer base that is supporting them? Is it outdoor/adventure enthusiasts...

    BLF A6 Switch Question

    I am considering an A6 since it comes with a warm emitter option... but my question is, what is the "forward and backward mode" switch? Does it have a momentary function? If not, is there a switch that can be swapped to provide momentary activation?

    What's Up With Die Cast???

    I've seen several Nitecore models advertise die-cast construction... how is this different than traditional aluminum lights? What are the advantages and disadvantages? Or is it ultimately just cheaper for large manufacturers?
