Is the Caframo Sirocco 2 fan any better than its predecessor?

Like many others, I am disappointed at the longevity of the Caframo Sirocco fans. My experience is that more than half of them fail pretty quickly, some of them within a week. I see that they have put out a Sirocco 2 which has a different on/on/on/off switch. Does anyone know if this was done to address the persistent failure problems? I love the fan when it's working and would like to be able to replace like for like.

I totally agree. I have the 02 Cool as general purpose fans in the cabin but I need a wall-mounted fan for the berths.
