- 123a rechargeable batteries
So far these batteries are holding up well. They last about 1/3 to 1/2 as long as the non rechargeable Surefire batteries. I have charged 1 set 3 times now with good results. I would recommend these batteries.

These rechargeable batteries are awesome! They last me a week while on the midnight shift. I bought an extra set so while I'm using two of them the other two are charging. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who uses a flashlight every night and doesn't want to keep replacing those expensive CR123 batteries.

- Good buy
I bought six of these batteries with a charger approximately six months ago. So far I've been very satisfied with these batteries and their charger. I've had them in service in my EOTech, primary weapon light and secondary weapon light and all work well. I will say the life of these batteries in the lights are significantly shorter than non rechargeable and a similar light which came with rechargeable batteries. Overall I would more satisfied if they lasted longer but they do the job and save me money.

I am struggling with these rechargeable batteries. In my one battery units, they don't last very long at all. When I first put the battery in the unit, the high beam won't work. After a while only the high beam works. I can click on the low beam then it quickly goes to high beam but harly ever clicks back to low beam. In a little while the light uses up all its energy In most of my one battery units I have gone back to lithium batteries.
They work much better in the two battery units but the high out beam doesn't last as log as the lithium batteries. But the run time is acceptable in thse units using rechargeable batteries.

I did not do a electrical test - but these rechargables have not lost a lot of its charged state. I use them in all my sf led flashlights.

the good part, they are worth the money due it is much cheaper than buying batteries every month.
the only bad part, they don't seem hold on to a charge very long after you use them a few times.
overall, I have no regret buying these batteries and the charger. I highly suggest buying another 2 batteries so you will never have a issue.

- Best way to save some money.
This is by far the best thing I have bought for my flashlights. Rechargeable batteries are easy to use and saves you a lot of money in the long run.

- an abrupt end
I love having rechargeable batteries. I feel like I'm doing something good for the environment. These batteries don't last very long and when they quit they go without any warning. Keep an extra set on hand or change your batteries on a regular basis.

- Enables me to use flashlight(s) far more often
I used to use my 123A powered flashlights for quick or urgent things. With two pairs of rechargables, I use it for anything and everything - shining light for 20 minutes down fiber cables to determine placement, etc.

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."
