The SC64w HI is incredible. I even like the UI, direct access to both high and low, and medium can be reached both from ”below” by hold, and from ”above” by double click. And can be reprogrammed as you like, including levels not in the original set of six. It’s small enough to use as a backup, and even as a holder for a spare 18650Knowing they won't be available forever, I ordered a SC64w HI last week.
Wow, what a flashlight. I also have a SC600w HI and SC64c LE, and the SC64w HI is a really nice compromise in beam shape between the two. Just the perfect mix of throw and flood for general use, and excellent tint as well.
I do have some quibbles with the ZL UI, but if we're looking at performance metrics, the SC64w HI has a strong case for best light in my collection.
ZL is being discussed, right? That's the name of the topic, right? What am I missing?
Haven't seen this, but it sounds like a stuck switch. I'd cycle it about 100 times and see if it fixes it. Any exposure to chemicals or syrup?Just asking this here because it seems the most frequented by the relevant people.
My SC5 Mk.II started flashing randomly when i turned it on the other day, clicking the button again to turn it off it started ramping low to high over and over again, i unscrewed the tailcap and screwed it back on again only to find it go on in low mode. After unscrewing the tailcap again i actuated the switch a couple of times to make sure there wasn't an issue there and tightened the tailcap again, once more met with the light turning on. I replaced the battery, figuring maybe that'd help, but i was met with the same result again. Finally i turned it off and let it rest for a few minutes with the tailcap off, and once i put it back on again the flashlight was back to factory settings, all my mode groups had been reset to factory settings.
I've attempted to find anything on this a bit all over the place, but i haven't found anything relevant to this issue. If anyone has experienced something similar or knows what's going on i'd appreciate hearing about it.
It isn't doing it now, and i've attempted to replicate it without the switch doing anything like that again. No exposure to anything apart from random water splashes, sweat, rain etc. that shouldn't affect the switch like this. I could understand the stuck switch, but that wouldn't also reset the flashlight like this.Haven't seen this, but it sounds like a stuck switch. I'd cycle it about 100 times and see if it fixes it.

Does it do anything else prior to fudging up again?
So in other words there's no way to really predict it either. Out of my 2 Zebralights only the SC5 II has been acting iffy on its own rather than from outside influence.Nope. It never happens on its own. I'll go to click it on to use it and it will start randomly blocking and going off and on. Clicking the switch at that point does nothing.
Unscrewing the tailcap to break the connection, then retightening, fixes it until the next time it happens.
