Received this as a free replacement due to my original capacitor " quick charge" model being recalled. 5.11 contacted me " wow great customer service" and sent me this model for FREE due to the lifetime warranty!!! Very bright light-long run time on one charge. I charge it once every 10th use or more. Not sure if the outer shell is as durable as the older model, but so far so good. I would recommend this model without hesitation.
