Zebralight H602 Review
Cons: Heavy, mediocre battery life, and low beam strength
Bottom line: Although the beam shape of this model was noteworthy, it had mediocre battery life and beam strength.
This light is a doomsday prepper's dream. Those equipping for the end-of-times love durable stuff from off-the-radar manufacturers. If it uses special batteries, like the H602 does, all the better. In our view, this is a product uniquely suited to home and shop use, but limited in utility in the great outdoors. At home, you never look too far and can be near replacement batteries. Outdoors, you may want to see further than this Zebralight allows and do not want to have to change batteries as often as we found is required. For better all-around performance with almost the same quality of close proximity beam, check out our Editors' Choice winning Coast HL7.

Our Analysis and Hands-on Test Results
The Zebralight H602 is a rugged, bright light that burns through a non-standard sized battery relatively quickly.
With a score of 8 out of 10, the H602 is tied with six other products in our test, and is surpassed by only three. The strong, even beam of all Zebralight products impressed all of our testers. As you can see in the beam comparison below, the Zebralight H602 throws a long beam with really even light distribution. Compared here to our Top Pick for brightness, the Fenix HP25R, which is one of the few lights to score better for trail finding, you can see that the H602 still holds its own.
