Spot the difference

My trusty Petzl e+LITE (refurbished back in October 2010) has been AWOL since we returned from our most-recent wildie back in October 2011. We've looked everywhere for it but it refuses to be found, so I was charged with sourcing a replacement. The best deal that I could find was on Amazon.

Yesterday the postie delivered the new one. The lamp-unit, head-band and revised cord-grip (the one with the integral whistle) are the same as the one that's been lost but the pod's had a minor makeover... small changes, all worthwhile and simple to do by modding the mould-tooling.

So far I've spotted the SOS/OK pictograms, the improved grip-lugs on the lid (gloved hands get much better purchase on these) and the drain-hole's gone (so the thing doesn't take on water when immersed). Can you see any other differences?

In both pics the old pod's on the left, the new pod's on the right.

    Is the new one slightly larger in volume? I always find it a struggle to fit it all back in...

    Or is this a trick question?

    Just checked - the volume's the same. Can't find any more differences.

    The key to fitting it all back in is to neatly roll the headband (from which you will have amputated any excess). That way, a couple of spare batteries can be squeezed in. The whistle-type cord-grip does take up more room than the standard one.

    See, on my blog, the link to here just relates the title of your latest post. In light of your recent travails, you can understand that my concern that clicking on the words "Spot the difference" might have taken me straight to a photie of your erse.


  4. BG! says:

    @Scott - Yeah, but you still couldn't resist having a look. What does that say about you, Scott???

    It certainly says that I need to start getting out more on Saturdays. 😀
