Just as good as the $8 cell!
I had to change out an alarm system that used 8 CR123 cells and was calling home to complain about its batteries being low. So I've used 1/4 box so far. Factory new they measure 3.23V and I've also run a set in a surefire E2D with equal runtime to the factory cellls. Have no fear - cheap CR123's are here!
The cr-123 cell is an amazing primary (disposable) battery. It's high energy capacy, 3.0 v output, and compact size combined with 10 year shelf life have led to its design into alarms, flashlights, weapons systems, night vision, basically anything that needs dependable power for a long time or at a high rate.
The box comes with 4 strips of 10 cells shrink-wrapped for protection. They measure 3.23V open circuit out of the box indicating they are fresh manufacture (the ademco alarm components signal a low-battery indication at 2.8V so there is a narrow band of usefulness) I tested 2 of these in my surefire e2d on high and low without any problems.
Tenergy makes 2 versions of the CR-123 - the 1300 mAh and the 1400 mAh, this is the 1400 mAh spec on their website.
When the CR-123 cell first came out it was a photographic cell and sold at drugstores for as much as $8 ea. Even the best pricing on Duracells CR-123 is 1.89 in large quantity. To get 40 batteries for under 40 dollars is a great feat. All of my ademco wireless sensors use the CR-123 and need to be changed about every 6 years, which is now so this was a great find at the right time.
While some people will swear by a brand (e.g.Read more ›
Did I expect them all to register more than 0.01 volts when removed from the package? You bet.
3 of the package were dead.
You're probably already aware that CR123 batteries can be pretty pricey; if you use them in high drain applications (ie high output flashlights), you can really burn through some money keeping them powered!
I use them in a 700 lumen Sig Sauer Stoplite, and I can go through 8 or 12 of these in a single night if it stays on most of the time, so the low price is pretty important to me. I doubt you'll find them cheaper anywhere else, and if you go through as many of these bad boys as I do, that's worth something!
On the other hand, I've noted (as have a few other reviewers) that output isn't equal to that of top of the line CR123s I've used, but the lumen output on my Stoplite is still sufficient to light up a stand of trees better than 100 yards away or blind an assailant if necessary (or yourself if you don't watch where you point that thing, watch out for mirrors lol).
They don't last as long as top of the line batteries either, but even so, I save a nice pile of coin by using these instead of paying 5 - 10 times more for name brands. They may last a little longer, maybe even twice as long, but nowhere near 5 - 10 times as long.
If cost efficiency is important to you, I'd recommend these without any reservation. There is a moderately noticeable difference in quality between them and name brands, but not enough to make them a bad product, and in my opinion it is more than compensated for by the savings.
I hope some of you find my review helpful in making a more informed purchasing decision. Peace :-)
I bought a 40 Pack of these Tenergy 123 batteries about 1 year ago (in 2010). Have used them almost exclusively in Surefire and Streamlight 2 cell flashlights, as well as in my bedside pistol's green laser/flashlight. The one cell pistol laser/light has seen a lot of use over a period of about 6 months and is still on the original battery. Due to my use of around 16-20 batteries so far in my flashlights, I am confident enough that these batteries are either the same or close enough to brand-name CR 123 batteries that I am comfortable enough waiting another month or two before proactively changing out my weapon light's battery (reference "About ALL Lithuim Batteries" below:). I use my high-powered flashlights excessively when hunting, camping, construction, and walking along high traffic roadways. I have 10 years experience as an engineer in the Armed Forces.
Five Star for These reasons:
-Batteries are either the same or close enough to brand-name batteries that I treat them accordingly and literally trust my safety and security to them. I am not equipped to do so, but it would be interesting to use the appropriate equipment to test the voltage drop and amp hours on these batteries as compared to name brand batteries. I would not be surprised if these Tenergy batteries were slightly lower in mAh, but fully expect them to be close if not identical to name-brand batteries. I have used 12 or so Surefire brand batteries in the same lights I have now, as well as a few other brand names. Tenergy is the only "off-brand" product I have tried.Read more ›
