The charger works great, and the batteries last a reasonable length of time after the charge. The light blinks when the batteries need to be recharged, unlike the regular ones which just get dimmer over time. I believe I will invest in another set of the rechargeable batteries, so I always have a fresh set, then I won't have to keep buying the regular ones all the time.

- Good way to save on battery costs
I bought this battery/charger combo well over one year ago, and I've been using it continuously every since. It charges a completely depleted pair of batteries in about four hours, and battery life is approximately 40%-50% of that for standard non-rechargeable lithium CR123A batteries.
My one complaint is that the positive terminals on both batteries (the side without the bump) have indented slightly over time, which I can foresee as eventually causing intermittent electrical contact if the indentations continue to get deeper.

- Good product
I was buying batteries left and right spending lots of money, until I bought these rechargeable batteries which have saved me tons of money, other than that, the time the charge lasts could be longer, but I am satisfied with the batteries......

- LFP 123A Battery Charger
So far the charger seems to work very well. I am pleased with my purchase of both the charger and the lfp 123A batteries. I would recommend these to people who don't want to continually buy non rechargeable 123A batteries.

- Very Good Rechargable Batteries
I purchased this SF2R - Kit01 for my Surefire light. They have performed well. The light can still drain them pretty fast, but the ability to recharge makes it very convenient. I highly recommend.

- Not up to expectations
I use this charger with my surefire headlamp on a nightly basis, as I live off-grid. Unfortunately the batteries only hold a charge for a few days at a time with heavy use. My husband has a pelican headlamp with a battery that lasts for over 3 months before needing recharged.

- Great, easy to use.
Excellent alternative over the regular 123A Batterys instead of just tossing them in the trash. These rechargeable's tend to loose their lifespan and don't hold their original charge capacity from when I purchased them and tend to see that in light performance especially the P2X Fury. The 500 Lumen mode knocks down the battery pretty quickly. I would have no hesitation buying them again though. As usual everything I've bought from Surefire has been excellent!

The charger works great and the batteries last a long time. If you own a Surefire, I highly recommend getting rechargeable batteries-- they will save you money in the long run.

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."
