An earlier elaborated model of the electron, being based on a revised quantum electrodynamic theory, is further investigated in terms of an improved numerical iteration scheme. This point-charge-like model is based on the "infinity" of a divergent generating function being balanced by the "zero" of a shrinking characteristic radius. This eliminates the self-energy problem. According to the computations, the quantum conditions on spin, magnetic moment, and magnetic flux, plus the requirement of an elementary charge having the experimental value, can all be satisfied within rather narrow limits by a single scalar parameter. The revised model prevents the electron from "exploding" due to its eigencharge.
