Default Does anyone know the difference between the MD785 high and low power?

Aside from the obvious 25 vs 45w max power does anyone know the differences between the two?

I see some options:
-2 radios are identical physically with a software cap put on the power of one
-2 radios share the same design and heatsink but with minor differences to power stages
-2 radios have different power stages with bigger heat sink and power stage on the 45w model

If the radios are identical other than a software cap, then financial concerns aside, seems daft to get the lower power one.

If they have different designs and the 25w is lighter with smaller heatsink I could be tempted with that (but specs give no different figures to weight). Don't intend to use more than 25w but if its just a software cap then seems sensible to have the unlimited version.

Anyone worked out the differences?
Cheers
Jim

The US version 782s have the same 25/45 option. They are the same price.

Thanks, think I assumed that the 45w would be more expensive! I guess that I will end up getting the 45w when the FD version is finally available here. . .

I'm assuming you're in the UK, is the EM5 model sold there?
They appear to have the same specs as the NA2 models sold in the US.
