Interested in a Q5 version, if price is right; also a H30 model when available.
Everything sounds good to me. Best regards. Gordon

I too would be interested in a Q5 version.

I've never owned a headlamp before and find the traditional headlamp design to be big and bulky and impractical for me to carry and use. This is the first headlamp I can see using regularly mainly because of the side mounted emitter and the pocket clip. I'm guessing that 85-90 percent of the use I put this light to will be when it is riding in a shirt pocket.

I think this light will appeal to many people who currently do not own a headlamp. At the very least I would say it will appeal to anyone who currently mouth holds their flashlight for hand-free use. The challenge it seems will be making the people who currently do not use headlamps aware this light exists and letting them know how different it is from other headlamps.

The Zebralight is slated to replace my trusty Aurora which has a beautiful floody beam and runs all summer on one set of 3 AAA lithiums.

Since I assume that Zebralight must have working prototypes, it would be nice to see beamshots and real world runtimes. Given the price-point, my expectations have been raised. I'm expecting to see a flawless beam with excellent battery regulation.

Yes, I also take two of the Q5 (or higher). And I will test it underground.

I'll find a projection screen and get some beamshots in a few days.

The runtimes from preproduction units (with the same batch of components as production units) are: low 85 hours, medium 19 hours and high 2.5 hours. All three levels are current regulated, no PWM involved.

I know that this is not a sign up thread, but I really do want to purchase a Q5 version of the light and don't want to miss out on it. Please let me know what to do.

I PM'd George to let him know this thread was beginning to look like a sign-up thread. In the PM I mentioned those who have already expressed interest.
In response, George has opened an official Q5 sign-up thread here:
https://www.candlepowerforums.com/threads/172043

You should be listed if you expressed interest prior to my PM. If not, and you are interested in a Q5, sign up soon. Looks like only 90 Q5 Zebra's will be offered!

I'm not sure that "CPF's Custom & Mod B/S/T" is the right place for the thread but it's there for now.

I have created a signup thread for the H50-Q5 version. There will be 90 limited edition H50-Q5 available. There is no need to signup for the H50-P4 version.

https://www.candlepowerforums.com/threads/172043

I have added those who expressed interests in this thread to the list.


Thank you shakeylegs.

I'm very interested in this light, but after the last few pre-buys, will not get another unproven light until I see someone actually test it.

Guess that means no Q5 for me.

:sigh:

Gunga,

We can still reserve one for you. You can wait for a while, and when you decide to buy or not to buy, just let us know.

I dont know if this question has been answered yet but, if this light is a twisty , wont you need both hands to operate it? That defeats the headlamp purpose for me, specially for biker or cavers. Wont the light rotate in the soft silicone holder, while you try to operate it? I like the pocket clip idea though. Ive been wanting a quality high powered pocket light for some time now.

Yes, it's a twisty.
