Can anyone tell me how the El Cap compares to the Pacific?

I have a Brass Pacific with an AA body which superficially looks very similar to the El Cap. Is there a major difference between the two?

Both the Pacific and the El Capitan were each available with different power levels (XLR/HP/UP/SP for Pacific, #0-#8 for the El Cap). But, yes, El Cap has much greater output than Pacific, for both with maximum output heads (500cp versus 1850cp, I believe).

The El Capitan is physically a bit smaller than the (AA-bodied) Pacific. Also, the El Cap can run a Li-Ion 14500, but I don't know if that would be safe in a Pacific.

Hope that helps!
