The Zebralight SC5c Mk II is one of the brightest flashlight lights that runs off 1 AA battery. This is their updated for 2017 SC5 that I tested at nearly 500 lumens with an Eneloop. The SC5 is a tiny, well built every day carry sized torch, that is waterproof, and drop proof, that has great moonlight and ultra low, fraction of a lumen firefly levels. This is a great light star gazers or people who need dim levels of white light, to preserve their night vision. It’s perfect for camping and backpacking because it weights a little over 2.5 ounces with a battery. This flashlight review features runtime tests, lumens measurements, beamshot comparisons between other lights (Fenix LD15, Zebralight SC600w Mk III, the Lumintop IYP-365, the Thrunite Archer A1, and the Armytek Prime Pro), and a section where I show you how to program the User Interface (UI).
