Thread: Rechargable CR123a Batteries

    Default Rechargable CR123a Batteries

    which is good?

    The primary reason for my looking for this is my torchlight but I also have an old SLR camera that is going to need a change of batteries soon.

    Seeing as how this particular torchlight at very best can keep the battery alive for 3 hours, I would think that rechargeables are the cost friendly solution. So, I need a good rechargable battery that holds at around 3Volts and not 3.7 or 4.2 as some other rechargables are.

    w3cube does not carry this anymore btw.

    Is the one below any good? Or add on your own if neccesary.

    well seeing as how on average they will last my torchlight 2 hours and i usually use it the whole night, say about 10-12 hours... let's make it 10... that adds up to $28.00.

    I can buy half a delkin charger. wahaha

    I still have the w3cube rechargeables, couldn't use for camera fearing it might blow it, have two of them still in it's original packaging. PM me if interested selling it cheap since couldn't find a use for it.

    BTW, which torchlight are you using that uses CR123a batteries?

    Your PM is full, do you have plans to sell the torchlight? I would be interested. At least I can put the batteries to some use.
