The new 2018 models except for the Above Grounds now come with a new anti tangling swivel cord. I purchased an Active 30i yesterday and received it today but I didn't get a 2018 model with the swivel cord, apparently I got one of the previous models. I noticed I might have a problem when the box looked like it had been in a warehouse for a while. It had accumulated a lot of dirt and torn in a couple of places. I called the place I bought it from and they are going to replace and apologized for the incident. They called their Maytronics rep to complain because this is not how they do business. They will be shipping a 2018 Active 30i to me from Maytronics HQ asap. WARNING: Just be aware that you could also be getting a 2017 model or older and could be the reason you are getting a great price. I wasn't getting a great deal so I expected the 2018 model with the swivel cord.
