Both the ZL are tiny compared to the Acebeam H20 that's for sure.

Just to confirm for those reading this the H52 is larger than the H502.

Oops, did I get 52 and 502 reversed? Still, both are great torches.
Just move it!

GPSGuided wrote:Thanks Simon. The size differential didn't have anything to do with your operation but thought it was a useful input here. I couldn't understand why they increased the size with the H502 given they are both AA based. In comparison, the H52 felt really neat in my hands.


Any Zebralight model without a reflector over the emitter will be smaller then its equiv in the same battery size with a reflector as the ie. 502 has enough room behind the emitter for the driver etc, so the battery can be housed closer therefor allowing for a smaller / shorter overall light. The 52 has a nice deep reflector allowing for much much greater throw then the 502 but because of the reflector there the light needs to be marginally longer to accommodate everything.

Thanks for the technical explanation there Travis! Yes, now I recognised the difference in the reflector design.
