I would, but I know how long it takes for Zebralight to actually ship a preordered light. This time I will wait for the official release.

They have been very slow with their latest pre-order releases but if you wait you are likely to be waiting for a very long time as the amount of these NW emitters at the moment are very limited according to ZL. So it's anyone's guess when they will receive enough of them to release them on a permanent basis. Release date is supposedly 28 Nov.

Nice try Zebralight! Laughing

 

I just read that these don't take flat topped cells. That is a deal breaker.

SC600 interests me because for it´s power vs. scalability. I mean, it can be used easily either with very very high power or very low power for ridiculously long time...

Also small form factor and sideclicky make it appealing. Price is a bit high but nothing with specs like this really is.... On the other hand, I´ve been lurking on the Q50 for the "easiness" of just slabbing it full of those Eneloops and go...

Received my SC600W. I would say it's more on the warmer side of neutral. Definitely warmer than my XenoE03 NW. The Xeno NW is actually closer to my H600's CW than to the SC600's neutral. Guess this is my first "warm" light then. Oh and XTAR batteries fit in the sc600 and the H600...! They're tight but they fit Smile

I'm in the same boat. I bet it will just show up unannounced. Zebralight does some weird things with shipping.

They look to be around 4500-4750K from what I saw on CPF. That's a 4 series tint.

I just noticed that ZL removed the "estimated shipping" notice off of the SC600w page. I have a feeling that there are going to be a massive number of shipping notices going out tomorrow.

Guys when you finally get your lights, please test if yours steps down after 5 minutes when placed on turbo mode.

Mine is on the way.  I'll let you know when it arrives (probably in another week or two)

Got my "w" today. It's got the step-down. I kind of wanted one without, but I think I'm better off with it. I'm not head-over-heels for the light, but it's nice. I really just wanted a SC60 with an XML, the SC600 is a tad bit big for me to pocket carry. (I want the soft switch back too. :p)

Good Quality.

Aggressive knurling, I like  it to file my fingernails with Smile  A man file...

I have very large hands and have no issue with the recessed switch or the double click speed needed to change levels.

It remembers which level of H1 when shut off. So you can turn it on in H1(turbo).

 

Works with flat top cell.

 

I wish the split ring lug was a flat block to screw the sc60 style clip onto.

Those of you that have received these, how is the tint?

Is there any green?

I gifted my ThruNite Neutron 2A neutral which had the perfect tint (a little purple, just like a metal halide bulb) and I'm looking for that again.

This beam shot makes it seem that the light has a bit of purple to it and no green, is this true?

I'd say there is a hint of green in mine at the lower output levels (anything not H1 or H2). I'm quite sensitive to green and I wouldn't say that it is bothersome. The tenedency towards a green tint is a side effect of current regulation (no PWM). (If you ask me to explain it further I wouldn't be able to. I'm just regurgitating.)

Wow. I had been waiting on the light to come off of back order. Last night, it did. So, since I had a good Christmas, I jumped on it. Checked it today (after getting shipping information), back on back order. That was fast!

Got the light today. I would put the LED at 4000K as it is the warmest neutral LED I own. Only slightly warmer than the T5 4B that I have in my Spark SL6, which is fine as it masks the tint shift from the hot spot to the spill. The tint is wonderful.

Another thing, every picture I have seen of this light, they just have a bump for the positive contact. I actually have a spring on the positive pole meaning I can use any 18650. This light does EVERYTHING I want (strobe, high output on high, really low low and uses an 18650).

The quality of the light is amazing too. The switch is tight, the machining is awesome and the knurling is REALLY good. Also, being able to get to all modes from off (including low without blinding myself) is REALLY freaking nice.

This is my first Zebralight but it definitely isn't my last.

I did a runtime test yesterday just to satisfy my curiosity so I figure I'll post it here since this is the only SC600 thread. Smile ZL claims 2 hours on on H1 (highest high with 5 minute stepdown) on a 2900 mAh cell. The only other runtime test I saw was by selfbuilt and the cell he used was 2200 mAh. I wanted to see what it would do with a Panasonic 3100mAh cell.

The light ran 2:08:47 to 50% of initial output. So Zebralight seems to be accurate, and I'd guess that the 500 lumen H2 mode would likely run 2:20 or more.

Also I wanted to point out that current production models now have a spring for a positive contact, so flat top (or recessed top) cells are not an issue.

I assume this is WAY warmer in tint than XM-L 3C?
Is this correct?

ZL website says, LED: Cree XM-L Neutral White (Norminal CCT 4200K  

So that's like 5B1/2 range.  my ZL H600W appears to be the same tint. I just got it and I like it.

But they also say, "Availibility: Out of Stock" on the site for the SC600w.
