The peak in efficiency.
I have a lot of lights. This one is my favorite. It pairs the most efficient flashlight-sized LED (XHP70.2) with Zebralight's best-in-industry boost-buck driver. The result is the most efficient flashlight I'm aware of. Runtimes are INSANE. I use the Tesla 21700 4800mah 15A battery - you can find them second-hand for $2-$3 per battery brand new. The tint is slightly green, but I don't notice it unless directly comparing to another 5000K light.

Very good for MTB
Very good for MTB as handlebar light! Pros reliable lightweight long runtime self contained battery, brightness good throw and spill waterproof low price Todo for a perfect MTB light: Wireless handlebar remote. Very important for MTB. The remote should have 2 buttons to increase or decrease the light (in G8 user would select the modes for remote)and should NOT turn on/off the light. Battery status at a glance. 4 color led would be perfect 100%blue80%green60%yellow40%red20%flashing red0%

Great Little Powerhouse
This little flashlight is amazing. Great build quality, really good run times with the 21700 batteries purchased at Zebralight. The programming was a little daunting until I got a grip on it. I now have all 12 lumen levels programmed into G6 and G7. I highly recommend this flashlight.

My most used Zebralight
This is the fourth Zebralight I have owned. Top-Tier Quality construction, combined with long runtime on the 21700 cells plus the small form factor - - - combine to make this one of the most practical flashlights available on the market today. This is my everyday carry light. I would love to see Zebralight fit an XHP35 into this light with a reshaped and smooth reflector. It would be Zebralight's first compact thrower that many ZL fans have been waiting for.

The power of the sun in the palm of your hand!
This Zebralight SC700D is the big daddy of the whole lineup. It uses the Tesla size 21700 Lithium Ion battery. 90+ CRI ensures colors are accurate with a 5000k daylight tint. The LED is a powerhouse in this small, compact light! 3000+ lumens to be exact! This is the ultimate Zebralight. Don't forget to pick up the recommended 21700 battery on the bottom of the product page! Be sure to pick up a good lithium ion charger that supports 21700 batteries. (Try looking online from IMRbatteries, ect.)

Another winner
It was time for a 21700 Zebralight! This one is a winner with higher output and runtime. I had an issue with the clip fitting mine but they exchanged it for another and this one looks fine. The XHP70.2 is good but not great. The 90+ CRI is totally not evident to me. But the overall tint is pretty good so I'm happy. Perfect outdoors light with a good balance of spill, throw and output. And the return of super low output like .04 lumens is icing on the cake.

Glad I got it!
today I was tempted to pick up a half priced jetbeam that produces 3100 lumens on an IMR 18650 cell. Well since I have replaced my SC600wIII HI. I saved $70 today with the SC700d ar 3000 lumkens! THANKS!!!

Short Technical Review
I wrote a technical review (with many runtime graphs) on Budget Light Forum. Can't post a direct link, but search for "Zebralight SC700d A Short Technical Review".

My Sixth and Most-Used Zebralight - Though There Are Many to Choose From
This is a versatile, beautiful light for those who appreciate top engineering, workmanship, and aesthetics in their tools. Its chosen trade-offs are well chosen, and it seems as efficient as possible given its apparent goals and the limitations of technology, which is at a point where I think: "Yes! Good enough." It shows colors accurately over a huge range of lumens, manages heat remarkably well, and all in a package one can still wear in a pocket. I'll use mine proudly for years.

Powerful little flashlight
I have had it for 2 days now, and I must say that it's rather a powerful little bugger. I measured 2740 lumens on High (H1) and 2 lumens on low (L1). Pros: powerful, small, beautiful design. Cons: tint is a little greenish! See full review at 1lumen.com
