Best flashlight I own!
I've had 0 issues w/the button... Have had the SC52 for a few yrs but hadn't used it a ton until hurricane Maria, been in my pocket throughout the last 3 weeks tho (still w/o electricity and all), thru plenty of rain & bumps. Only looked it up on website today to figure out the batt level indicator. I'll probably pick up more for family members, every time I turn it on high people are amazed at it's size... But it's low low mode is just as useful around the house & helps conserve battery life.

IDK what the deal is with the review before mine, but the button works perfectly on mine and never gets accidentally pressed in my pocket. This is the best light ive ever found for EDC. Lots of modes, good batt life, INSANE output with 14500 batteries, while still giving you the option to run AA's. It has lasted me a long time of hard use (banging it into things repeatedly, water use, every single day) never seen even the slightest problem. Keep at it zebralight you guys rock.

Slight brightness improvement, Terrible new switch. Can't carry in pocket!
I would strongly recommend against buying the L2. The L2 contains the new "lighter" switch. The lighter switch self activates all the time in my pocket. You only realize after the light starts heating up and by then, you've wasted much of your battery not to mention a hot pocket! On the plus side, the light is slightly brighter than the L1 version and retains all of the other great features. I now have a light I can't carry. I reverted back to my SC52 L1 version.
