    Surefire batteries are made in the USA by Panasonic (last I checked), but they clearly have a deal where they get the best-quality units from every production run. They last a long time and they perform consistently, maintaining their voltage until they're completely dead. Oh, and they kinda look like shotgun shells lined up in their little flip-top box. =)

    I wish they weren't $2 apiece, but honestly, all the cheaper brands have issues with one cell holding a noticeably different amount of charge than the next, and considering other brands of high-quality CR123 batteries cost 3x as much in the supermarket, $2 apiece for these is still a bargain. If you buy these you'll save money just by not having to replace them as often.

    By the way, if you have any devices that use ANY kind of lithium battery in a multi-cell configuration (even the 1.5V Energizer Lithium AAs), you should know that one lithium battery will block the flow of electricity from the other batteries when it finally wears out. DO NOT throw away all of the batteries in a device that suddenly stops working -- chances are, only one of the batteries is really dead, and the others have plenty of charge left. You can save a lot of money by testing used batteries before you throw them away.

    I just received the batteries I ordered. I ordered just what the description states, a 12 pack boxed batteries. I did get 12 batteries but they came in a bag. There were three rows of four batteries in a flat plastic package. Each of the three rows had the batteries touching each other, the plus to the minus just like in a flashlight. Batteries should not be stored this way. It can cause the batteries to discharge and with Lithium batteries there could be a remote risk of a fire. Also the expiration date was only 8 years away and Surefire advertises 10 year shelf life. So I lost two years of shelf life before I even got them. The company "planetools" should state the date. I will not do business with that company again. Surefire batteries are good batteries and you can get the batteries that are treated correctly from other companies.

    Although these batteries have a 10 year shelf life out to 2020, the batteries seem half dead like they have been used. I have them in a 15/200 lumen Surefire and a 80 lumen one, and both look quite dull as compared with actual new batteries that I had to go buy to confirm my suspicion.There was no factory sealing on the box so there is no way to confirm if they are new. All I know is they last 5 to 10 minutes then fade out. Maybe a bad batch. Try directly from Surefire.

    I very rarely review any of the items I've purchased through amazon (and I've purchased a lot over the last ten years or so), and the few times I've had problems, fortunately, the seller has made good if there was a problem (and in all cases, amazon has been nothing but great in ensuring I either get a replacement or a refund where a third party seller hasn't come through). So my review is not about amazon at all, but about this product, which I purchased two times, six months apart. That said, the photos I've posted speak for themselves.

    First, the good news - amazon, as I mentioned, is great, and stood by this, refunding me my purchase price in full. This is why I love shopping on amazon - their customer service is second to none. Now,the bad news - I called the manufacturer, sent them the photos I've uploaded on this product, and was told by the customer service rep (who sounded like he was reading to me from a script, after I was on hold for about half an hour) that they'd get back to me, but they never did. I called them about 8 hours later, and when, finally, I got through on the phone with them, the same person I spoke to earlier answered and said, when I asked why he hadn't gotten back to me as he promised, "sorry, we've been busy." I asked, "so?" and was told that unless I sent these leaky batteries to them, they could do nothing about it. As if they seriously thought I was going to send leaky batteries in the mail or foot the bill to send them by UPS to the manufacturer? (I had disposed of the batteries after taking the photos, as I didn't want leaky batteries in my house). I had stored these batteries in a dark cupboard, never taking them out of the box, and they were not subject to any more moisture than the standard NYC summer humidity.

    BUYER BEWARE!!!!! I ordered the 12 pack of "Boxed" batteries and what i received was a plastic baggie with 12 batteries inside. The sticker on the bag clearly said "boxed" batteries. Apparently their idea of a box is a cheap plastic baggie.

    This may seem like a small nuance but it brings up two issues for me:

    1. I seriously doubt that these batteries are brand new. - they must be used or rejects to come in such poor packaging.
    2. I ordered the boxed batteries so that I could store them in the box in my gun safe. I specifically chose this option over the plastic shell packaging options for this very reason.

    I went online to return these and noticed that it says "non-returnable".

    DO NOT BUY THESE BATTERIES!
