Information Article About CR123A 3 Volt Lithium Batteries
MEGAbatteries.com is pleased to offer you this information page, dedicated to the CR123A 3 Volt Lithium Battery.
CR123A Lithium cells (cells are another word for batteries) used to be synonymous with camera batteries, but now, have substantial competition with Lithium Ion Rechargeable batteries for today’s digital cameras. As an example, the Nikon F and S series camera and the Canon EOS models used to be used mainly with CR123A lithium batteries.
The CR123A is most definitely still heavily utilized thought in many photographic equipment accessory products such as:Remote Speedlights for the Nikon SB-R200 camera, and to power the Flash Master Light Meter for the Sekonic L-358.
Some of the clear benefits that throw the CR123A Lithium batteries ahead of AA non-rechargeable Alkaline batteries are that they offer higher output current and energy density, justifying their higher price tag.
Lithium Battery chemistry is much more robust than Alkaline chemistry. Alkaline will always do the trick, but Lithium is heartier, hands down.
CR123A 3V Lithiums are manufactured by brand name leaders in the battery industry and are marketed under different trade names or model numbers to show proprietary makes. Some are: the DL123 by Duracell and the SF123A by Surefire.
The CR123A is also made by other major manufacturers like Panasonic, Rayovac and Sanyo just to name a few more.
Capacities range within the CR123A Lithium battery line. All batteries are rated for their capacity in mAH which stands for milleampere hours. The higher the mAh rating (numerically), the longer the run-time of the battery, meaning, the longer it will last on one charge. If it is a non rechargeable battery, as is the case with lithium chemistry, that one charge is its’ only charge.
Speaking of rechargeable, it bears mentioning the there is a RECHARGEABLE version to the CR123A cell. It is actually called the RCR123A, the R at the beginning, designating that it is rechargeable. It comes in a rechargeable version, the rechargeable CR123A, however the capacity is less than half that of the lithium version.
