    Have you guys seen any performance differences outfitting the U with the V5 opposed to the non U? I would think you would have a little better heat dissipation with the bigger U, especially with those fins but I wonder if that correlates to any real world differences? I had the original v4 X300 when the normal ultra came out and it was nice having a smaller, lighter package that was more then double the output of the ultra. Now that both the regular and ultra can be configured with the V5, i still feel the same way. I would rather have the smaller, lighter package of the regular X300 but smaller dosn't always perform better with brighter...

    Tom (who does these by hand) is a bit swamped making BOSS heads this year but I'm working with him to review and reschedule. We may reduce steps and wait by switching to a pre upgraded model, so less individual work that can slow things down.

    v5 will monitor temperatures and adjust only when needed, but Ive not had an opportunity to A/B test them. In theory the larger size and fins does make the U better with sustained output. That said, the on/off/on nature of these lights may make that less relevant.

    Introduced in Insider 60, our Triple x300u started as an upgrade service. But that slowed things down, so we are bringing it back as ready to ship, pre-upgraded lights:

    With new programming options, a limited no-battery-door option, and even a y300 version for the first person to ask
