Questions for USERS of Godox flashes

I'm wondering about the overall quality and performance of the Godox flashes in general, and more particularly the TT685.

My first concern is about the recycle time of the TT685. The manual says "Approx. 0.1-2.6 seconds (eneloop Ni-MH batteries of Panasonic)". I'm sure the 2.6-second time is for a manual full-power capacitor dump. Knowing how marketers tend to fudge a little or a lot, is this really accurate? NOTE: In case this matters, I'm not one to shoot 15 or so frames in a row; but, I frequently will do 3 to 4 over 15-seconds.

They advertise a guide number of 190(ft) for the TT685. Do the guide numbers they advertise for their flashes appear in your experience to be accurate? (and I wonder at what focal length they measure that guide number)

What about build quality? How solid do they feel?

Have you had any failure issues?

Other comments welcome please.
