So far, I think i found my next two toys. A SC52 for edc, and a Nitecore SRT7 for outdoors.
Now, Can you guys give me suggestions here.
1.I will be buying the SC52…in cool or warm, but I can’t decide seeing how a lot of people are getting green tinted led’s. So, which one would be a better choice if I want a nice neutral white without yellow, green or purple tints at all?
2.With this, i will be buying 2 ZL 14500’s, and i think some eneloops to play around with.
3.I will also be purchasing a Srt7, with 2 Eagletac 3400mah 18650’s.
4.And, for a charger for both types of batts, I think I will go with the i4 charger, with car charger cord.
So, this is proving to turn out to be quite a lot of money for these two lights and batts. Where can I find a great deal?
I was told to order the ZL light from ZL, in case I need to return it due to a greenish tint, so I will probably order this and the 14500s from them.
But the other stuff, is kind of spread out. I can buy from Amazon, but I don’t know how reliable this is and would hate to wait weeks for something since Ive had issues with ebay before but never used amazon. I know Illumination Supply is supposed to be good, but they don’t have the Eagtac batts.
So can you guys recommend where you would buy this setup? And, if I need something else or even if it is overkill, please let me know. I am very excited to get my new lights! It just seems like I will be ordering from 3 different sites so far, and will not be good for the wallet. I was hoping to save on shipping by ordering at least the srt7 and batts and charger from one site.
Oh, and are there any codes for a discount at any of these sites? I am member here and CPF, but just can’t seem to find any discount codes. Am i missing it somewhere?
Again, thanks for any advice you guys can give. Much appreciated.
I sent you PM with coupon code, but you didn’t get it from me
Pay attention to the checkout instructions. Check out with PayPal, nothing will get charged to you, it’ll come back to illumination supply website THEN you enter coupon code, and check that it’s valid (doesn’t work on ALL zebralights, but most). If it doesn’t apply to any of the lights you order from them (or if you are ordering more than just zebralights) let me know and I have another discount code for the other ones (not as good).
Just to be clear, do NOT enter the coupon code on the first (step 1) checkout screen
How’d you like the beam colour on your SC600 MKii? I can’t stand mine, it’s by far the worst out of any flashlight I own, including my $5 ones! lol.
Stock Skyray king, cool white, old/original non U2 model:
4 x Nichia 219 high CRI warm 2.1 amps each TiR optics:
You know when your $40 SRK has way better tint than your $100 ZL there’s gotta be something wrong
I can’t wait for my SC600w MKii U2 The true thermal regulation will be nice too, instead of the stupid timed stepdown. If it wasn’t for the lack of thermal regulation I’d just get the LED swapped on my current MKii but I guess if the tint is crap on my new warm U2 I’ll just get the LED swapped on the new one
@toysareforboys…Just to be clear, I will not be using paypal. I will be using my credit/debit card. Will these codes still work? Thank you very much btw.
Oh, and yes I know its tiny. Currently buying to replace my E11 which I love. But I need a new toy, and like i said Im getting the srt7 for outdoors, so this is really just to keep on me at all times without really noticing it.
About the ano, you can see in InfinitasEquitas pic above, the sc52 is light in color, but on the ZL site it seems they are showing very dark green ano’d ones.
And now, to be honest, you guys got me thinking about the SC600w again, although ZL doesn’t have them in stock. Are these out of stock everywhere right now and only pre order?
I am very torn between the Srt7 because I think i’ll have fun with the rbg lights, and I need a decent thrower. But, it seems the Sc600w has 1020 lumens! Thats a lot of light. And i like the features, so yea I might get that too. If i can even find it anytime soon….
I’ve only ever checked out with PayPal. There’s probably instructions on how to use the coupon code with credit card checkout (probably put the coupon code where I told ya NOT to put it, lol).
The NEW sc600w MKii U2 version is out of stock everywhere, the non w version seems to be trickling in right now. Some are claiming mid december for the w/warm stock arrival time. The old sc600w you could probably track down somewhere, but you’d have to pry mine outa my cold dead hands
Oh, so Im assuming there is a version 1 and pre order version 2 of the sc600 Warm?
I think I get it now…but you guys are saying the warm is way nicer than the cool right? Color rendition is important for this light as my edc.
Man, i really don’t know if i should go with the sc52 or the 600 now. Is it worth the wait to wait for the new warm one? and will pre orders get here faster than if we just wait until there in stock? thanks again for all the help
Is there a reason why nobody is upgrading the led’s on the ZL lights? Its not possible at all? Maybe we will see someone come out with one, but Im assuming its very hard to do or someone would have already. Can you clarify?
Can I ask another question……is it wiser to order from ZL site or a different vendor? I ask because ZL does not even have a phone number, and I hate that. I emailed them about something yesterday and Im wondering how long I will have to wait for the reply. Do they ship quick if I place an order? Or should I just go with a known vendor. Thanks for the advice
I want to order at least the sc52 today. Im thinking the 52w.
edit: im tired, its late. I guess the “MK 2” means version 2…….im a dope
