INFORMATION AND PRODUCT OFFERINGS FOR CR123A PHOTO LITHIUM BATTERIES
CR123A Photo Lithium Batteries are commonly used in today’s digital cameras, LED flashlights, personal computers and often as memory back up too! CR123A’s are used in wrist watches, remote controls, medical equipment, alarm, surveillance and home security systems, night-vision equipment and so much more.
These are 3 volt, single use batteries. Single use simply means they are not rechargeable as Lithium Ion chemistry batteries are. An advantage of CR123A lithium batteries is their excellent shelf life, at 10 years, on average. If you use them, you should stock up for future use, when you spot a great deal!
As mentioned, CR123A Photo Lithiums are available in rechargeable chemistries as well. These same size and application batteries, which are rechargeable, are made with Lithium Ion (LI-Ion) chemistry. Of course, there are Li-Ion Chargers, that are dedicated to these batteries. Li-Ion chemistry does not pose the risk of memory effect (reduced memory) that is often seen in, for example, in NiCd batteries. You can charge and recharge Photo Li-Ion batteries hundreds and hundreds of times. These are referred to as charge cycles.
The various companies who make photo lithium batteries include Duracell, Energizer, and Rayovac to name a few, use different model numbers for the CR123A. For example, Energizer calls theirs the EL123A, while Duracell's is the DL123A, and Rayovac calls theirs, the RL123A. All the names above can replace the CR123A battery without any complications. We also supply CR123A’s by Sanyo, Panasonic, Titanium, Tenergy and Powerizer.
If you don’t require your Photo lithium batteries for re-sale purposes, save big money by purchasing them in bulk packaging.
You can also buy generic photo lithium batteries that are made in China. The quality may be slightly inferior but for standard consumer use, the difference is hardly apparent. Typically, Government Agencies, Schools and Hospitals opt for brand names such as Duracell, Panasonic, Energizer and Sanyo over the generic counterparts. They purchase in great quantity and benefit from great savings that way
