Anyone know the difference between the Fenix ARB-L21-5000U and ARB-L21-5000 V2.0? I just noticed the 5000 V2.0 with a new light that came in today. I know that there's usually an LG M50T under the original 5000U, but I don't know what the 5000 V2.0 is, what's the difference, or why it exists. Can anyone fill me in?

Only difference I spot right off is the on-board charging capability of the 'U' model w/ USB-C interface port for that. Somewhat surprisingly, even the length is listed as being the same.

They both have USB-C charging. I'm not sure why the description or pics of v2.0 don't show that. 🤷‍♂️

I confess I didn't look at any photos. I simply read the text at each of the 2 links you provided, and did a 'find' on "USB" on both pages. One indicates 'USB', and the other does not. If the Fenix documentation is incorrect, you'll likely have to contact Fenix to resolve that.
