Fantastic mix from flood and throw, for that size a maximun output and phantastic runtime, now I order the SC52 and I think I will order the S6330 too, it is on my wishlist for the future.

Small, bright and floody
Camping in wooded areas, this light is exactly what I need - small, gobs of light, and so floody I can see where my feet are going and branches coming at my head at the same time as seeing way down the path, all without having to swing the light around. Solid build (not light weight!). Severely cool.

Best EDC I've had....
This light has served me well, and has been my primary EDC for almost a year now. Now I wait for the H502w to become available ;)

Very good light.
Very bright for its size. Makes a good fist pack just in case. Not a lot of throw, but that's to be expected from the shallow reflector. My only complaint, the description says it has "strobes", but there is only 1 and at 4Hz its more like a beacon than a strobe. 10Hz or faster would have been nice.

By far, the best light I own. The unsurpassed quality, workmanship and tolerances make me want to buy another for the sole fact that I know exactly what I'm getting... The best quality light, with the most cutting edge LED and driver, the best design and material for a completely affordable cost. Don't spend your hard earned money on anything else.

Small and very bright!
First of all I would like to thank the CSR for quickly attending to my request to add shipment option for my country! Ordered last Monday and received my light yesterday morning! I was very surprised with how small it is when i first opened the box. I was even more surprised at how bright and floody it is when I got home and pulled out a 18650 from hibernation. Such a high amount of output for a small EDC. Highly recommended!

Little powerhouse
I still can't believe how small this light is, especially considering the huge output! The beam and hotspot are wide and bright, and at 750 lumens it really turns night into day. I mostly run this light at 65 lumen medium mode, but the other modes seem very useable too. The beam quality is excellent, as is the overall quality of this little powerhouse. I would buy this product again!

Awesome! What a power!
I'm no stranger to flashlights, but this SC600 .... awesome. The power of this little light goes beyond all imagination. It's not a real thrower, but it's a good mix between flood and throw. The only downside is that is misses a lanyard attachment. (And a lanyard.) A tail operated switch might be handy as well, but the operation as it is certainly isn't bad. Head or tail, that's a personal preference. A solid 4/5 stars! I'd buy it again!

Light heats up rather quickly on turbo, which would explain the 5 minute run time on that setting. Excellent runtime on all settings. Anodizing is great. Output is excellent from the highest high to the lowest low. A pure flood beam. Illuminates absolutely everything to about 50 yards. The looks and machining are excellent. Has some weight with a 18650, but that just makes it seem more robust. Overall a good buy.

Powerful + beautiful
The SC600 is my first single cell 18650 light and I'm very satisfied with its rather floody light output and well spaced levels. For its output it is wonderfully small and the weight with battery is still very much OK with me. The new electronic switch is much stiffer than in previous Zebralights and needs some getting used to, but one can be absolutely sure now it won't turn on inadvertently in one's pocket, so there's no need for locking out anymore.
