- Rechargeable at great value
I've been using the rechargeable CR123a batteries for about three months or so, and couldn't be more pleased about the decision. I use a headlamp daily and count on it helping me make money as an auto mechanic. I was shocked at the cost of buying the CR123a primary batteries, as much as ten dollars a set of two, so it was worth a look to see if these rechargeable batteries could provide an alternative power source. I have been so impressed, I have gone back for another three sets of batteries and a second charger!

I bought a 6PX pro about 2 months ago, best flashlight I own! I have many including about 8 made by Maglite. I bought a cheap version of the CR123A batteries, mistake. This flashlight needs power, so if you use it everyday, get the High Energy cells from Surefire. The best feature about this flashlight I found about the hard way. If running on high, and the light cuts off, switch to low,it will light your way out.I always have my mini mag to back me up, but no need with this flashlight. Well job Surefire, I'm a customer for life.

- Great money saving product
I have many Surefire flashlights and it was time for a new stock of batteries, Along with my battery order I thought I would try the rechargeable option for my LED lights,
Very pleasantly surprised with the quality, while it will not completely replace the usual batteries it does help.

- Cold Weather Charger
Use this charger in my truck, gets very cold in New England. These batteries are working BETTER than I had expected. SureFire light is just as bright. Swap extra set of rechargable batteries once a week.

- Big three electrician
work as an electrician in a factory and really like the 200 lumen capacity of my flash, but not the batt replacement cost. So bought the charger with two rechargeable batteries and also two extra to be able to rotate without downtime. Order was received as expected but the batteries that were supposed to be with the charger were missing, started charging and using the extra set I had ordered and called about missing batt's. Next set was sent out quickly at no charge but when I put them into my new charger to get them ready the charger popped like a dozen firecrackers! And this charger had previously recharged the first set three times without fail, so again to the phone and they sent a RMA pickup and still have my charger and the suspect batteries!. Not a good beginning, but love my flashlight!

This is a great charger. it comes with a wall charger and car charger adapter. This is a no brainer. If you purchase the rechargeable batteries you will need this charger.

- Great Product
I love this thing! It is very small, compact and very light weight. I love the ability to charge via a standard outlet or a car charger. The batteries charged in about 4 hours and work very well in my Surefire LED lights. The beam appears to be about the same as disposable batteries but the spill is not as bright from my observations. This product is perfect to keep your every day lights powered without going through disposables. Already showed several people I know who will be ordering it as well. Very cool, would buy again.

Do not use LFP 123A batteries with incandescent illumination tools. See Restrictions below.
Kit includes two LFP 123A lithium-phosphate rechargeable batteries and a combination wall (AC) and car (DC) charger with appropriate AC and DC cables. These 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 charger, which features a charge status indicator light, will charge two LFP 123A lithium-phosphate batteries simultaneously. The runtime of these LFP 123A batteries is approximately 50% less than the runtime 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.
- Combination wall (AC) and car (DC) charger simultaneously recharges two lithium-phosphate batteries (included)
- AC/DC charger features indicator light
- Two LFP 123A lithium-phosphate rechargeable batteries provide hundreds of charging cycles
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. The included charger should not be used to recharge disposable 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."
