Tenergy Propel CR123A Lithium Batteries

Post by bobapunk » 19 Dec 2012, 10:52

I have an Amazon gift card and I was going to use it to buy a supply of CR123s for my flashlights.

Have any of you any information about Tenergy batteries vs. Surefire/Duracell/Energizer etc?

Thanks!

I bought some tenergy Alkaline AA's from Fry's electronics. Six months later they were all dead when I pulled them out of the package. Stored indoors in my desk.

I tried them, I had a similar experience. I use Titanium innovations from battery Junction. They are only 95 cents and last almost as long as surefire at half the cost.

I would either go with Surfire, Rayovac or Titanium. I only buy those three, whatever is the cheapest at the time, and I normally get 50 at a time to get bulk pricing.

I have also had good luck with Titanium Innovations from Battery Junction. Their prices are pretty good too.

Use fbfan05 to get 5% off at battery junction too. They may have other codes out there, but that one works.

Just got an email saying the batteries are on backorder...

I must have missed that when I was ordering...

The order page does not actually state that they are on backorder. It says that delivery time is 1-2 weeks. After I ordered, I got an email saying that, "As indicated on the Battery Junction website when your order was placed, your order contains items that are currently out of stock." A little deceiving, but I'll live with it.
