CR123, CR2, 2CR5, CRP2, CRV3 Photo Lithium Batteries

This page is dedicated to our photo lithium battery inventory and to information about this line of batteries.

CR123, CR2, 2CR5, CRP2, CRV3 Photo Lithium Batteries are 3 Volt batteries with lithium as their chemistry. They offer Long lasting performance, have excellent shelf lives (typically 10 years!), and are ideally suited for today’s digital cameras and other electronic consumer equipment.

As well, they’re commonly used in computers for memory back up and also found in many flashlights. Notice that these are all applications where one wants to have a battery with a very long shelf life. People want to know their flashlights will have power when they need it and that their computers memory back up can be counted on to perform. Lithium chemistry is very reliable and enduring!

Add to the list, these products: watches and some remote controls. The term “photo lithium battery” will generally be indicated on the device it that’s the ideal type of battery for it.

With such long shelf lives, it’s wise to stock up on the models you need, when you spot a good deal from a solid and reliable battery supplier. MEGAbatteries.com is just such a supplier!

As lithium batteries, the CR123, CR2, 2CR5, CRP2, CRV3 series of Photo Lithium Batteries are not rechargeable. Lithium chemistry is non-rechargeable (also called single-use, throw-away and disposable). However………

There ARE rechargeable versions of these as well, using Li-ION (Lithium Ion) chemistry. And for this line of photo lithium batteries, there are dedicated Li-Ion battery chargers to charge them and keep them operational a good long time.

A very significant benefit of the rechargeable versions of the CR123, CR2, 2CR5, CRP2, CRV3 series of Photo Lithium Batteries, is that Li-Ion (Lithium Ion) batteries do not suffer from the risk of memory effect. For those of you not familiar with this term, it simply means that with batteries which can sustain this effect, they can have their total memory reduced if they are only “topped off” with a charge before becoming fully depleted of power. This effect is seen in NiCD (Nickel Cadmium) rechargeable batteries. One must be sure to wait until NiCD batteries are “dead” before recharging them so as to preserve the total capacity of power they were manufactured with. But Li-Iom batteries are immune from this effect. They can be charged and recharged without cause for concern about how much power remains in the battery at time of recharge. That luxury causes the battery to be more expensive than NiCD’s but for those who can’t be bothered to keep track of how much energy remains in their batteries at any given time, the extra cost is well worth paying for this added benefit.

Just as with other battery models and sizes, different battery manufacturers make the same battery (designed to do the same thing) using their own proprietary model numbers. The leaders in the line of Photo Lithium Batteries are Duracell, Energizer, Rayovac, Panasonic and Sanyo, and each company uses different model numbers to describe their batteries.

Take for example the CR123A. Well the folks at Energizer call it the EL123A, and the folks at  Duracell call theirs the DL123A. The Rayovac version is called the RL123A. 

It’s important to know that all the above model numbers are equal and identical replacements for the commonly called CR123A.

Pricing on photo lithium batteries, as with all batteries, varies from brand to brand and from seller to seller. For those who require them on blister cards for resale purposes, they’ll cost more than those who buy in bulk packaging.

Those who purchase them in large quantity will receive better pricing. That’s the way it is with all purchases.

We offer this example: The 2CR5’s (Made by Duracell) typically run between $5.95 and $12.95 each, but if you don't need them for re-sale, then save lots of money by getting them in bulk (loose)!

There are also generic versions of these batteries manufactured in China. Their quality can be somewhat inferior to the name brand versions but most people do not notice this difference in their applications. Generally speaking, government institutions and other major buyers of these batteries, opt to go for the battery leaders in the industry. They purchase in quantity so the price drops and they still get the best.

With the rechargeable versions of the CR123, CR2, 2CR5, CRP2, CRV3 series of Photo Lithium Batteries, you can charge and recharge them up to 500 charge cycles. That means they can be charged up to 500 times! That equals years and years of battery performance for you!

If you’ve never owned Lithium Ion batteries, you might want to think about it now. Of course, we’re always here for you at MEGAbatteries.com. If you have any questions about this line of batteries, either the non-rechargeable kind or the rechargeable kind, please contact us by phone or email for friendly, accurate answers to your questions BEFORE you buy. Then you can purchase with peace of mind.

As part of our on-going free information service to our visitors, here are some quick links to other popular sections to our site. Not only links, but explanations (we like to call them text tutorials) describing each.

FOR BATTERY TESTERS:

You can test the strength (power left) of any battery you own. It’s an extremely handy device and costs very little. It’s one of the things many people don’t ordinarily think of buying but even if you only use it occasionally, you’ll sure be glad to have it around when you need it.  Let’s say you’re planning to be away at an all-day event where you know you’ll be inclined to take lots and lots of pictures. Wouldn’t it be better to test a few batteries before you leave to know which ones are full of power and just take them along? It sure would! NiMH battery testers (all chemistries for that matter) are good for battery sizes: AA, AAA, AAAA C, Sub C, D, and 9 Volt for as little as just $12.99.

FOR WHOLESALE BATTERIES: (CR123, CR2, 2CR5, CRP2, CRV3 series of Photo Lithium Batteries and all other!)

Many organizations, institutions, and even individual consumers alike, prefer to purchase their batteries in bulk packaging and in large quantity. They have enough experience to know that there are a few battery sizes they use over and over again. They might have children and use their batteries in their childrens toys. They might be avid photographers and need good camera batteries in ready supply. And for a host of other reasons, they require a surplus to keep in the workshop at their fingertips at any time. Resellers (merchants) are another type of customer that needs to buy batteries in volume. However, typically they need their inventory to be blister carded, ready for retail display. Buying in wholesale quantities is the way to go to get wholesale pricing.

There is not a battery we stock that we don’t have in large quantity. We invite all Government Departments, Universities and Schools across North America, Libraries, Media Centers and Research Labs, Corporations from Industry in the Private Sector to send us their Purchase Orders for their wholesale requirements and we are equipped to work closely and DIRECTLY with you, to deliver exactly what you require, how you need it and when you need it. Our brimming warehouse if SUPER Fresh batteries can adhere to even the most stringent of delivery schedules. Some ask that their batteries be shipped over time on the 1st Monday of each quarter. Some need their batteries spread out over many different satellite locations. Whatever the details of your requirements, contact us to tell them to us and we’ll do our best to meet those needs.

Please pass this site along to your colleagues, associates, friends and family and to all those who can benefit from dealing with MEGAbatteries.com as their trusted and reliable battery supplier! They will appreciate the recommendation. And of course, so do we!
