- 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!

- What every owner needs.
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.

- A must have if you use a LED flightlight
This is one of the best items to buy if you use your LED flashlight a lot. This will pay for itself in no time. I have replaced all my batteries with rechargeables and haven't looked back.

- works great
I bought the charger and some batteries 3-4 months ago for my Surefire flashlight because I was going through so many regular batteries. Charger works great, very pleased that I can recharge the batteries...it's saved me a ton of money.

I purchased this unit, complete with batteries, for my SureFire Fury dual-output flashlight. The charger seems to work fine but one of the batteries leaked - I believe prematurely - and had to be discarded, thereby making the charging device ineffective. In review, in light of the above mentioned failure, I would not purchase this unit again, as the warranty for batteries is insufficient.

- Enables more use of flashlights
Same as my review of just the batteries.
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.

This is a great alternative to disposable lights. We swap out a fresh set on a weekly basis to ensure 100% illumination and run time.

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."
