This is correct. I ordered and received a "Special Edition" JBR 20 from
a while back, and it came it in a box that specified 4x AA NiMH batteries.
Of course,
the V2 inside had a Li-Ion battery. The box was obviously a recycled V1 box
with an orange "Special Edition v2" sticker stuck on it. I can understand
many resellers, including Amazon, were confused by this. There were two
opaque white stickers that covered up other items pictured on the box. One
was a carrying
pouch (not included in the Special Edition), and the other, interestingly,
was a Windows/PC
compatibility mark.
