- No more disposables!
Great idea that took forever to actually be available. I have multiple sets that power both my Surefires!

- Freedom from disposable batteries!
This charger set provided by Surefire is 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 the batteries or the charger. I'm very happy with these lithium-phosphate batteries!

- Great rechargeable batteries
These rechargeable batteries are great for anyone who uses their SureFire flashlight a lot. Having both a wall and car adapter charger lets you stay charged almost anywhere. These are my primary use batteries, while I have a box of SureFire disposable batteries for backup.

- Finally !!!
What can I say, IT'S GREAT! I've been waiting for this product. I use may 6PX Tactical just about everyday at work. You could imagine the amount of money I spent in disposable batteries. With rechargeable batteries I can free up some funds for another Surefire light.

- rechargable cr123 batteries
This is money well spent if you are going to use devices with these batteries. I bought 12 disposables to keep on hand, and 2 rechargable cr123's with the charger. The batteries work very well (not quite as bright as disposable's but they seem to last longer). I reccomend this product to anyone using Surefire lights.

- Wrong batteries
Although listed as the correct batteries for the backup and confirmed when I called, they were not and did not fit.

- Works well
I bought a charger with its set of two rechargeable batteries because of the high cost of the disposable 123A lithium units, and I am very happy with the product. I use my Surefire flashlight on a nightly basis and, on several occasions, had to use a cheaper and less efficient flashlight because I had forgotten to stock up on batteries for the Surefire. Now I simply keep the charge up and it works well.
I want to add that I have enjoyed excellent service from the Surefire company. I called them to discuss a problem I had with the battery chamber spring - and a new one arrived within days at no cost. My Surefire is great. It was a gift from my son who has one also and who, like me, appreciates tools that are made well.

Purchased this unit to be able to charge the LFP 123A Batteries that came with it and the others I purchased from a 12 volt battery and/or a solar panel, just in case I can't get the regular 123 batteries during an emergency. It worked great when I charged up the batteries. I have them up and dated to see how long they will hold a charge and then I will charge them up again. Can't see anything wrong with the charger. In fact I plan on buy a couple more and several more of the rechargeable batteries. Great service from Surefire.

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."
