    For a better answer as Steve's lights are awesome

    1) Material: Ti vs SS - I simply prefer the Ti for its given properties (38DD, 44DD and Quantum Ti)

    2) Trits: The newer versions better display trits along the sides where it is needed most (40DD, 44DD and Quantum DD/D2/Ti)

    3) Internals: Ever evolving and getting better (44DD and QuantumDD/D2/Ti)

    4) Size: Personal pref listed in order of length as width I believe is quite similar among the models: (38DD (38mm), Quantum Ti (38mm), Quantum D2 (38mm), Quantum DD (40mm), 40DD (40mm) and 44DD (44mm))

    5) LED: Personal pref again - I do like the Nichia 219 offering though (Quantum Ti)

    6) Capacity: Only the 44DD uses 10220 batteries the rest use 10180 (44DD)

    7) Weight: Ti is lighter than SS, even the 44DD is lighter than a smaller SS light. (38DD, 44DD and Quantum Ti)

    One thing I will say is that if you are hesitant on getting one then do this. Get one. If you don't like it, these lights completely hold their value and you can always find a buyer here on EDCF. Once in your hand, it will be hard to let go. It is a complete package keychain/neck light with great output, looks, size, weight, comes with a charger... I'm a small light fanatic and this one is the top of my list in all its renditions. Do it! :D

    Oh, and I don't work for Steve or get paid by him. Wish I did. :D I've just been there from the beginning along with a guy named applevision I believe was his name where both of us wanted the smallest/most functional/brightest EDC wearable lights possible. My wife always wants me to go into sales, but I got to believe in it 110% and not many things out there have me at that percent.

    *LOL* quick story: we (wife and I) are trying to save money with our new house and all and after I gave her a monologue on why I purchased the much more expensive gas container she never stops telling me about going into sales. She is an extremely conservative person with money and finances! Hard to justify any purchase beyond basic needs especially after our home purchase. I knew she would be on me about that gas can and I was ready! :p

    They fit the 10180 batteries. Is that what the 44DD uses or does it use the bigger ones?
