- CR123 Li Phosphate Battries
This is my second purchase of four batteries. I have been using these for over a year and have been very please with the performance and recharge / recycle performance. I bout the latest 4 as I am conducting a few cold weather photo workshops and want to be sure I have enough backup for my Surefire Headlamp and Flashlight. Both use the same batteries. Thanks Surefire for another great product.

- Excellent alternative to throwing away expensive batteries
I'm so glad that surefire decided to start selling these rechargeable batteries. My only complaint about surefire batteries was the expensive cost of constantly going through CR123 batteries in my lights. Now I run these in all of my handheld lights(I still use lithium CR123 primaries in my weapon lights). After a few months these rechargeable batteries have already paid for themselves. Thanks!

The rechargeable LFP 123A batts are a great product and re-charge to full-capacity in a short time, many times. I would recommend purchasing this product.

I purchased these batteries to use with my tac light. I have not had any issues with them at all. I charge them and they last for a significant amount of time before requiring a recharge. i would recommend these batteries to everyone instead of purchasing the standard lithium batteries

- Good Batteries
Great batteries for my Surefire lights I use around the house. I completed a side by side comparison and the beam appears to be about the same intensity and size, it is just the spill that is a little less with the rechargeables which is no problem for me. Great price and great product so far. Will be buying more.

- Not happy
Product does not work with new back-up light ,the 200 luminous version. I wish that this information could've been listed on the sure fire website.

- These work great in LED lights!
These lithium-phosphate batteries are a great alternative to lithium primary cells. Instead of constantly throwing away used batteries this option allows you to recharge these specially made lithium-phosphate batteries over and over again. They don't have as much capacity as the disposable lithium batteries but the ability to recharge them more than makes up for this issue. Personally, these haven't replaced disposable lithium primary batteries. Instead, these lithium-phosphate batteries are what I keep in my lights and I carry standard lithium primaries as backup. So far I have not had any problems with these batteries. I bought them as an extra set to go with my charger. I'm very happy with these lithium-phosphate batteries!

- rechargeable batteries
The rechargeable batteries I purchased would not charge. I sent everything back and received another charger and 2 sets of batteries. Only one set of batteries worked and it's not cost effective to return those that won't charge even with ups ground. I can't believe sure fire would sell inferior chinese products.

Do not use LFP 123A batteries with incandescent illumination tools. See Restrictions below.
These two LFP 123A lithium-phosphate rechargeable batteries—which retain approximately 50% of their original capacity even after 500 charging cycles—will power SureFire illumination tools that use disposable 123A lithium batteries. The runtime of these LFP 123A lithium-phosphate batteries is about 50% of that provided by disposable 123A lithium batteries; maximum output levels are typically not affected. Use of these rechargeable batteries can result in a cost savings over time, depending on usage habits. Recharge only with AC/DC charger included with SF2R-KIT01, sold separately.
- LFP 123A lithium-phosphate rechargeable batteries provide hundreds of charging cycles
- Use of LFP 123A batteries can result in cost savings over time, compared to disposable 123A lithium batteries
- AC/DC charger sold separately
Warning: As with disposable 123A lithium batteries, do not mix rechargeable LFP 123A lithium-phosphate batteries with other types or brands of batteries, including but not limited to 123A lithium batteries.
Rechargeable LFP 123A batteries are only to be used to power LED illumination products (built to use 123A lithium batteries) and NOT those featuring incandescent lamps. The initial elevated voltage of these rechargeable batteries, immediately after charging, may cause the filament contained within an incandescent lamp to break or “burn out."
