    Thanks for pointing this one out.

    Much of the specs are similar, such as weight and power source. But I'm disappointed that they've increased the Max Output by about 50% and nearly doubled the...

    So is it November or October?

    But in either case, I would say your biggest limiting factor is the weather you might experience in GSMNP.
