On my lights, the new pills make it easier to get low levels and more stable once there, less flickering (but still a little), broader overall level range, smooth ramping, same ramp going up as coming down.
Yes +1 on the upgrade. Got mine back today. It is significantly smoother (even minimally jumpy progression) than the Gen 1 when new in my SS Logan. If it is durable then we have a winner. I plan to use my Logan exclusively as my EDC for the next two weeks. We'll see how the pill holds up.
