- Great Charger
Got this charger after a wait for restocking and it was worth the wait. It comes with AC/DC cords for versatility. I found it to be reasonably priced, compact, easy to store and use. Put two Surefire rechargeable batteries in and about 8 hours later the ready light showed they were good to go. As I use my Surefire Backup daily, I find this unit and a few Surefire rechargeable batteries save this retired guy some money. I would gladly recommend this unit and the rechargeable batteries as a quality piece of gear.

The item info needs to specify that it doesnt work with the Sure Fire Flashlight Model P27X Fury Combatlight Led.

- Buy it
Due to the cost of disposable batteries, I highly recommend this recharging unit and some rechargeable batteries. It charges dead batteries in a couple of hours and is only $30 bucks. Use the rechargeable 123 batteries in any of Surefire's 123 compatible products. I have them in my X 300 Ultra and have keep them as back up to my R1 Lawman.
If you use your flashlight allot, then this is definitely worth it. Cause nothing frustrates like a dead flash light when you need it the most.

- Decent looking Charger
I haven't fully tested this charger yet and its rechargeable battery that comes with it, but so far this charger looks like its well made despite its made in China. I'm curious if this charger would work with my solar power charger.I can't wait to test this little charger in the near future.

- Great so far
I bought this charger set with an extra set of batteries (item SF2R-CB). They came with one set, but I needed another for rotation. This charger is great and has never failed me. Everything from Surefire is a good quality product, and mine has been flawless for over a year so far. I will definitely buy again.

What are the advantages of rechargeable batteries? Too many to name! First off if you use the light alot (which you will if you carry it every day trust me) rechargeable batteries just cost alot less to run and you can save that stock of cr123a primarys for emergencys and power outages. With rechargeables you will run the light alot more, guilt free lumens we call em. And you can always keep them topped up if your going somewhere just throw em in the charger or car charger and your good to go. With primary cr123a batteries i wont change them until they run out because they cost so much but with rechargeables i know im always good to go. Its true you get less runtime with them vs primarys but keeping them topped up gives them the advantage on a day to day basis. For emergencys and power outages always keep a few boxes of primarys

- So far so good.
It's working like a charm so far. Use the pair of batteries in my ED2 Defender flashlight. It holds a decent charge with intermittent use for about 3 weeks before I have recharge it, and even then they are not fully discharged. Great product, no complaints

- Ok. Could be better
I bought this charger and a set of spare batteries at the beginning of 2013. Its saved me much money over regular 123 cells, but the AC connector is cracked in the charger and won't stay plugged in. It could also use a state of charge indicator, and bad cell testing. Its OK for the money though. My only worry is the AC connector.

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."
