    Default New Zebralight H31

    The Zebralight H31 is up o the ZL site, along with the new SC50 flashlight. The H31 is clearly based on the SC30 body, and will likely be another winner, IMO.

    $59. I'm in.

    This light looks so cool but I'm wondering how a reflector would work.. i'm assuming you don't get pure flood? I was hoping for an updated (tech and aesthetics) version of the H30..

    For hiking this could be a perfect compliment to the H30. I've always thought the only downfall to the H30 was that you need to carry a light for throw with it. Obviously I knew that when I bought it but I'll complain anyway . I think my backpacking trips this year will include an H30 and H31!

    Maybe by its estimated ship date there will also be a neutral-white version.
    6.5K diving light, 5K cool-white, 4K neutral-white, 3K warm-white, 2.7K extra warm-white

    I haven't got the page up at present, but from memory you get roughly 70 degrees of flood and 8 degrees of hotspot. If I remember rightly, the zebralight page says hotspot is 3 feet wide at 20 feet.

    So, looks like a nice combination of throw and flood.

    Once they offer an 18650 or AA version of the reflectored ZL's, I'll be the first in line!

    Looks great!

    From the SC50 description:

    "2Hz flashing mode, in the H2 sub-level when 14500 batteries are used, or in the H1 sub-level when 1.5V batteries are used."

    Hmm. Is that really a correct description? So if I use a 14500, it jumps from 38 lumens to 193 lumens. I mean, a 2 Hz flash is completely useless. That's sort of a deal breaker for me. WHY oh why did they do this?

    The H501 UI is the best UI I have used. What other UIs lets you access any level of brightness quickly with a minimal number of clicks? Proton has something similar, but I prefer the Zebralight UI.

    The UI for the SC50 is an improvement over the H501 UI with the inclusion of 2 levels of brightness for Low/medium. And the lower low is the moon mode that lasts for about 21 days, which makes it possible to use this light as a night light.

    There have been some confusions about the new Zebralight UI.

    Since this thread is about the H31, my apologies for the little derail.

    I have been e-mailing Zebralight frequently with questions, trying to get information about their new products and updates to the existing line. In their last reply, they indicated that the flood headlamps will be redesigned for the CREE XP-G some time this year, but have no definite plans yet.

    hmm I was going to wait til the "h61" or equv. came out but
    I might have to get the 31 and just carry an extra batt.
    think these will work with RCR123s?
    Im assuming they will.

    I want one.

    I don't think there is much of a holdup really. Their site clearly says Estimated Availability will be late March or early April.

    I guess we have to wait until then. But I too am ready to send some monay!

    Can something similar (> 200 lumens) be done with AA battery? (Not sure, my Nitecore D10 is 130 lumens and people say it's the brightest single AA) I love ZebraLight minimalist design and would buy one straight away if it's AA (I already have the H30)
    One thing I notice though: the switch lifecycle of my H30 is listed at 1 millions click while most later ZebraLight switches are listed as 200 thousand only - why?

    The new Lumapower 500 lumen Signature comes first but the AA version of this light is SOOOO next on the list.

    I love it.

    Probably have to sell a light or two first though.

    I was wondering the hold up for the pre-order. All the new flashlights had more pre-order time open, this one has yet to have the buy activated.

    They told me it was due to time off for the Chinese New Year. After the holidays, they would begin production, shipping, etc.

    If the H31 is anything like the SC30, this headlamp is going to be incredible. After using the SC30 for a month, I am beyond impressed. I am going to be one of the first to buy the new H31 when it becomes available.

    I sent an inquiry to Zebralight last night about availablilty and pre-orders. Per Lillian Xu, lights will be available "the end of April", and pre-orders will be taken "soon". Now you know what I know.

    So how many of you are going to buy this as soon as it is released? I am considering waiting to see if they make a warm version. What do you guys think?

    Pre-orders for the H31 are being taken NOW! I just ordered mine.

    It states that the estimated ship date is April 15th.

    I'm also waiting for the h51, as I only have AA (and AAA) powered lights. I really hope the h31 delivers on its promise though, it looks like a winner.
