This is the Godox V1. Flashpoint is just Adorama's Godox.

That said, I actually ordered a V860II the other day for $120, but I'm returning it to get this instead now that this has such a nice price on it. Compared to that one, this has a much better display, much better UI for controlling slaves, and is compatible with the magnetic round attachments without any adapter. Absolutely worth the extra $40 imho. I only wish I could have gotten this as an add-on bundle to the XPLOR 400PRO I got recently. If you bundle this with any of the eVOLV or XPLOR lights it takes an extra $50 off the price (though you have to give up on other bundling options for those bigger lights which may wind up being a bigger discount, such as with the https://www.adorama.com/fplfev200...yID=253413 which I've been going around in circles over for a while now).

tempted, but just ordered V860II, wonder if it is worth the trouble of paying return shipping and order this one....

Question, is the another replacement battery additionally to the sold on the website?
$50 dollars for a battery is outlandish.

My plan is to refuse delivery on the 860. I have already initiated the return.

Yeah, wasn't sure myself, it just seemed to suddenly be a thing with the Profoto A1. This might be helpful though:
(From https://fstoppers.com/review/roun...-v1-385330)
Quote :
The shape of the head produces a round beam, unlike the square beam produced by regular speedlight heads...

The second benefit relates to the way light falls off at the edges of the beam. It is much more uniform than the rectangular fresnel heads found on most speedlights...

The third benefit comes when using grids. By attaching a grid, we restrict the direction that our flash beam is able to travel in. The round shape of the V1's beam offers the ability to create spotlight-style lighting just like a studio strobe with a reflector and grid would...

The first downside is that the head is not able to zoom quite so much as a regular speedlight...

The second downside is that the shape of the head means it won't fit many speedlight specific modifiers
