Finally got to see, hold and use a Zebralight for the first time. SC53c N with the 519a. Wow! I’ve seen pictures so knew it was small but it’s tiny (short)! My AA comparison is a Malkoff MDC AA which is giant by comparison. That switch being electronic threw me off. I’m used to McClicky mechanical switches where’re you have to make contact to cause a light change (or AAA twist lights). The Zebra was ready to change the second you touch the switch. Just surprised me. Not bad at all. I thought the interface was nice. Especially the really simple way to get to H2, M2, L2 with a double click from where you are. Really the only complaint would be getting to Medium from off uses a double click which gives you a flash of High for a split second (I know, you can custom set this). Anyway, just long hold and cycle L, M and release to get Medium worked fine. The speed it cycles from L, M, H also surprised me. Fast, in a good way. Overall I don’t know what to think. I have many AAA lights that are basically as bright and use rechargeables and are far smaller. This Zebra is a gift but I may still dream up a fun combo to order from Bob_McBob to own one for myself with a more preferred LED and optic. Just a simple review from a Zebra newbie. Super fun.
