New Nanoshot Plus ( EL625RC) for £40 or alternative?

I've just come across a shop clearing out lights, and they have a Nanoshot Plus 600Lumens light for £40, which seems "reasonable", but it is a 4+ year old model, and the technology is moving fast, but it's a massive upgrade from the EL-530 I had that got smashed.

I'm not sure if this is actually a reasonable price compared to what else could be had on the market - my commuting/riding distance is typically 1 1/2 hours a day mixed road/unlit paths, so the battery life is "ok", but will need to be charged each night, compared to every 2 days with something like the Volt 800.

What would people do ? Buy it, or spend the money on something else?

Thanks in advance.
