Number of charges is not always 6

I just want to note here that in the Giftbox that each account was given (starting around Dec. 30 or 31, 2019, I think, and ending sometime the first week of January, 2020), its blue feather-shaped charm had 20 uses instead of the 6 mentioned in the article here. I was hesitant to note this in the article itself because this may have been a one-time occurrence. However, might it be a good idea to note in the article that the number of charges is not always 6 unless you buy them from the Simucoin Store? I was not sure how to say this in plain English and have it make sense, the wording has me stumbling. Thanks for any help.

The old is:

Originally released as a SimuCon prize, they were subsequently found as a digging prize at Duskruin Dig. They are sold through the SimuCoin store as an Encumbrance Charm. They have 6 charges of 100lb weight reduction lasting 30 minutes each for a total of 3 hours. The effect is stackable.

Would this make sense for a new wording?:

Originally released as a SimuCon prize, they were subsequently found as a digging prize at Duskruin Dig. They are currently sold through the SimuCoin store as an Encumbrance Charm with 6 charges of 100lb weight reduction lasting 30 minutes each for a total of 3 hours. The effect is stackable.
When new, a charm's number of charges may vary. For example, in December 2019's Giftboxes, identical-looking charms which had 20 charges rather than 6 were released.

For some reason, my own wording is making my head spin. Suggestions? Thanks! -Soliere FIRENSIA (talk) 02:37, 4 January 2020 (CST)
