Selfbuilt's Flashlight Reviews
Extensive comparative analyses of modern LED flashlights
My goal is to provide objective testing results, in a readable form, to let you decide what flashlight best fits your needs. My reviews are posted on candlepowerforums, to facilitate ongoing discussions with the user community.
My flashlights are expensive to feed with all the runtime tests I perform, so I gratefully accept donations to my Paypal battery fund.

The SC62 is a new compact 1x18650 light from Zebralight. In terms of styling, it looks like a slightly longer version of the 1xAA SC52. But performance-wise, it generally matches the function of the SC600-II that I reviewed previously - right down to the same PID thermal regulation system. See full review for details.
