The Panasonic CR123A Battery Lithium provides the power source most used in today's cameras and high power flashlights. Lightweight and durable these batteries perform well in extreme temperatures from -40 to 140 degrees F.
Panasonic makes many of the cr123a battery 'brands' you already know including Surefire, Streamlight and many others. These are the same CR123A batteries you would find at places like battery junction or batteries plus stores. The only difference is that you can now purchase cr123a batteries online at www.fenix-store.com. We offer Perhaps the best CR123A battery made, at any price.
What is the difference between CR123 batteries and CR123A batteries?
There is currently no difference between CR123 and CR123A batteries. They are both composed of the same elements. The name "C" in the CR123 name represents the lithium element in the battery. The "R" portion of the CR123/CR123A battery name indicates that the batteries are round. The 123 portion is representative of the size of CR123/CR123A batteries. They are 1 2/3 size.
It is very important to not confuse the CR123/CR123A batteries with is rechargeable counterpart: RCR123/RCR123A. CR123 and CR123A batteries are for single use and not rechargeable and also have a different voltage. CR123 and CR123A batteries are 3 volts, while RCR123/RCR123A batteries are 3.7 volts. Taking note of the voltage is important since many electronic products including Fenix flashlights cannot use the RCR123 due to the higher voltage.
