You might as well just get one, you will eventually haha!. Total game changer in runtimes and outputs. You could use it every night as a night light for 6 months running at .3 lumens if you wanted or 24/7 for 3 monthsEneloops for the win! Also think it would be amazing if they made a 2xaa light. Been thinking hard about picking up an 18650 Zebra but I'm not there yet.
The 52 series work on 14500s? (Even unofficially)Yeah that was the same as the 52 series with the timed step down. It would have been nice if they had used PID to keep it higher longer, with corresponding lower runtimes. But I'm sure that was the compromise to also run the lower voltage batteries.
how'd the floor fair?Knocked my Sc5c LE off the bathroom counter last night. Smacked hard on the tile, bounced into the floorboard, spun around a few times flickering, and then shut off. I picked it up and tried to click it back on….nothing. I pulled the the battery, put it back in…nothing. Put the same battery into the SC52w and it fired up no problem. Tried a dif battery in the Sc5 and it works perfectly. Upon inspection, the original battery in the Sc5 has the bottom pushed in quite a bit from who knows which light in the past. Guess the impact smacked the battery just enough to push it over the edge so that the pogo pins weren’t making good enough contact. Anyway, got the first good drop out of the way and all is well. Small ding to the tailcap anodizing. View attachment 34844
Everyone should have a Zebralight headlamp... My H52Fw is my most used/carried light and I rarely use it as a headlamp. It makes a great EDC with just the clip and is quite useful handheld or as a right-angle work light.I am tempted to get a zebralight headlamp, it would be useful when I am doing my car stuff.
The 64w HI version was a clear upgrade to me, better tint, more power, better ergonomics (the body is smoother and the edges are rounded and shorter). About the LE version I can’t comment, I’ve never tested.I just looked it up, and I've been carrying the same Zebralight SC62w for over 7 years now! Maybe it's time to upgrade. I like the permanently-attached clip and the overall size. Is the 64w a worthy upgrade?
