Default Spyder III G1 vs G2 question

Hi everyone.

I finally got my WL Spyder III in the mail. How do I know which version they sent me? The G1 or the G2? I can't tell the difference.

Thanks!!!

Perfect thanks!

So is the g2 superior to the G1 in optics and power output?

WTF? Is this a troll?
Everybody (except you, obviously) knows the exact difference between the G1 and G2, and it has absolutely nothing to do with "optics" or "power output increase".

No, I'm not a troll. I'm just curious. I do not know the difference other than apparently the magic button on the side.

Wow you are a rude human being. You must be a blast at parties.

There is no difference other than the button on the side. Hopefully they made them a little less crappy though. Maybe assembled them correctly. One can hope.

Actually I am a huge blast at parties. Thanks.
I spin (DJ) and bring laser-lighting to most of the parties my crew throws.
and these are (usually) the type of attendees: link -> http://i117.photobucket.com/albums/o...0cba34aaf5.jpg

BTW: I should probably clarify my question:
"Is this post an attempt at 'trolling for laughs?" not: "are you a troll".
There is a difference.
Upset much? Perhaps you should try lightening up:

Oh, and here is a hint: The button on the G2 actually makes the arctic do different stuff than the G1 (without the button).
Ok, here's another hint: The button on the G2 has a name.... "smartswitch".

Yay. Spoonfeeding is fun.
