Yeah, you are right. This previous model is VERY hard to find now. I went
ahead and ordered one for $233 (USD) directly from this site
www.firedaddy.com that was selling them at Amazon.com for $255 at this link.

This is the US version of the model you suggested. I doubt there will be
new versions of this model left much longer. I don't know if the features
of the V2 are any better than this one, anyone else know?
