I'm using the SC53c N on an eneloop pro and the strobe seems to be hitting H1 well in the array of dizzying flashes, it could be an optical illusion but it seems more than adequate for this AA light .. Not that I use the fast strobe very much.Thanks guys, good point that it could be another change they've made with this latest modification of the SC53c N.
Jon yes true, there's lots I love about the TS10 - anduril, aux lights and a nice tint but it is obviously a relatively cheap build quality compared to zebra and I just can't get on with the tailcap button at all I really like the Zebra UI for EDC too, I like being able to choose particular levels with known lumens and runtimes rather than just 'X steps between n and m' with anduril.
Haha Lips, one reason the old semi-supported 14500 version might have been nice ...
Agree the ZL UI is very flexible once you get used to it. I have both the SC53c N and SC65c HI, they are both terrific EDC lights. You can fine tune them to your exact preferences. They are well built and if you are a pocket carrier you never have to worry about it going off accidentally sticking it into your pocket.
Sorry to hear some folks have trouble learning the ZL UI. I think once you get it programmed the first time you're gold. Then it becomes second nature to fine tune it to your exact preference.
And if anyone is still having trouble programming a ZL you can always start with this old classic reference guide to get going:
