    What kind of upgrade do they offer? Kind of sucks you have to send it back to get upgraded.

    Todd, there was a thread recently linking the upgrades of your competitors ;)....bit cheaper than lupines though hehe. I am not sure many lights are officially user upgradeable...apart from the lupines which you know about.

    I dunno. As a consumer I kinda like the idea the manufacturer will handle the upgrade and make sure it gets done right. That said, kudos to any of the companies offering upgrades on these cutting edge light products - much better than the model most manufacturers adopt. In fact, right now I own an obsolete GPS that simply needs a new receiver that can find the satellites through the trees. I'd love an upgrade over a new GPS, whether it be a DIY kit or a factory mail-in.
