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.
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.Read more ›
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!
