Nice but you can't get the thing. Eternal backorder on ZL website. I gave up.

They are not good at keeping their site up to date. Some have ordered and have had it ship normally even when it said out of stock. I edc a sc64 w hi and love it. My sc700d I use for outdoor use , the tint is a tad green , could be used to me being used to 4k ish tint. It’s very good outdoors though. Only notice it when I put another light next to it.

I wish I had the Fd Model…

The Green is very real on both this 700d, and the Sc600w MK iv Plus.

The 64w HI is a dream, and the one I carry while working to see true whites/colors.

All others in my collection have no green.

I might try the DC fix filter, it would turn it.into a floosy and even out the tint I think.

Has anybody had issues with battery fit? I have some samsung 40T I ordered from Fireflies and they are too wide and don’t fit my sc700d. Wondering if anyone else experienced the same.

I have that battery from Zebralight, it fits fine with a slight rattle if I shake it.

Odd, since I used the 40T in my runtime graphs.  I suppose there could be manufacturing tolerances in the light, battery, or both.

How old is the Zl? Maybe they added something to stop the rattle, or the 40t is a rewrapped something else? Odd though.

Likely manufacturing tolerances in the batteries. I am not sure if she, but same issue on my sc700Fd with different color anodization.

My 40T rattled slightly (only if tapped firmly, not really if just shaken). I wrapped a single layer of wide masking tape around the cell and it’s solved.

Has anybody recently purchased 21700 batteries that fit in their SC700D. Looking to get a 40T or P42 or Vapcell but worried they won’t fit. The 40T’s I received with my Fireflies order don’t fit in the Zebralight as its too wide.
