    Default Sti A5M0

    Saw it mentioned in another post here.

    I thought A4M9 was the latest version, or has the Sti been "upgraded" again?

    AFAIK the software is still A4M9... they changed the supplier of the photocell that regulates the display brightness because of a ban on the alloy used inside it...

    Don't know for a fact, but I would bet it's Cadmium Sulfide as that has been used in photo-resistive cells for decades. It's also a natural element in nature, but so is lead and mercury. Do a google, Cadmium Sulfide Banned . All part of the RoHS trend I would expect.
