I'd suggest it's a combination of age, usage, quality and how well looked after. There was a thread a while back about this and many Wetpixelers commented that they had had strobes for many years - 10+- and they were still going strong.

A former British diplomat, I've been a PADI, BSAC and DAN Instructor for many years. After retiring I spent a year as the dive manager at a resort in the Lembeh Straits. I then went back to trying to save the world and worked in Afghanistan for three years where I ran dive classes (amongst other things!) before moving to Paris and then on to Amsterdam - where I now live.
I've been photographing underwater since 1999 and selling images for a few years.
