- Rechargable 123A Batteries
I purchased six of these batteries -- I have three different lights that use them. I highly recommend them -- I keep them charged and ready to go. My lights are just as bright with the rechargeable batteries as they are with the others. One of the very best battery buys I have ever made. They have already paid for themselves in what I have saved with my throw-away 123As.

- Work Great
They work great, I have 2 sets and I trade them out once a week and have been doing that for 2 years

- A good value!
The cells hold a charge for a very long period of time. As I use my light only occasionally, I find it good to have a full charge when needed.

- buy another light
You won't even get a hour of use out of these batteries until they need recharged, I recommend buying a streamlight.

- Great rechargeable batteries
I am in law enforcement and use these batteries in my stream light polytac led. The run time is pretty good about 1.5 to 2 hours. That is at about 120 lumens or so. My co worker has a 600 lumen light but they lat him about 30 minutes. So take that into consideration. They charge quick, the company says they hold charge for 3 years and can recharge 2000 times. Good for 200 lumen or less flash light in my opinion or if you have a red dot or something they would work food for that too. But you can recharge the battery every night if you use it for work and you get a lot of bang for the buck if you get 2000 charges out of it.

- Great but one issue
I bought these and they are awesome. I bought 2 sets but one battery is like a fraction shorter so it doesn't connect with the charger. I called about it and they never did anything about it.

- Saving Money on Batteries
Compared to purchasing 2 new batteries every month, the LFP 123A batteries will pay for themselves in less than 3 months.

- Batteries worked for two seconds
Ordered two sets charged both, neither pair worked, could it be a bulb, I have only used one box of 24 batteries. The expense and time already invested makes it difficult to invest more time and money.

These batteries work well, but most have such a soft negative end plate that they collapse and then won't charge due to lack of contact to the charger terminals. The lithium batteries seem to last 2-3 times longer than a typical charge, but overall it's much cheaper to recharge and have a spare set on hand.

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."
