as pointed out previously these are not the same lights.
The front is rated at 60Lux, the original was 40, the newer rear is a rechargeable, the original was a battery job
well I liked the rear battery one, I seem to remember that the battery inside the front is the same or nearly so, so where does the extra lux come from? shorter times? One feature that the new ones DONT have I think is being able to run off a powerbank? I think Sweep reported that the light turns off when you connect one. If that is true then that writes of the new ones as no good other than for commuting. Adding just a 5000mah power back to the original creates a formidable touring light that can go on and on.
