Answer:
It has essentially the same "light specs" (color, lumens, etc.)- wise" The main difference (as I understand from *reading reviews* only - I never owned a Newer CN-216) is the ball and ball housing are metal on the Chromo, plastic on the Neweer. This difference could change daily....
Once again - read the reviews
