CR123A Photo Lithium Batteries
CR123A Photo Lithium Batteries are 3 Volt NON-rechargeable batteries. The term non-rechargeable is also often interchanged with the terms: disposable, throw-away and single-use. Absolutely never try to CHARGE non-rechargeable batteries. To do so, poses a very real risk of fire.
The CR123A Photo Lithium Cell is widely used in digital cameras, LED flashlights, personal computers and also, often as computer memory back up. They’re purchased for watches, some medical equipment, remote controls, alarms, night-vision/surveillance equipment and more. If your product uses photo lithium batteries, it will be indicated on the battery inside it.
A very popular benefit of CR123A lithium cells is their 10 year shelf life (this is an average). Because of this great value added feature, it’s wise to stock up on them for future use, if you use them or will be using them. Of course, a great deal does not only mean a great price. It most definitely also means, getting them from a solid and reliable battery supplier. One who guarantees the FRESHNESS of their batteries. One who addresses all your queries before you buy. One who is there for you! At MEGAbatteries.com, we are just that sort of supplier! Try us out!
Let us mention that CR123A’s, although non-rechargeable, also do come in a rechargeable format as well. That version would often be written with an R before CR123A. These same size and application batteries, which are rechargeable, are made with Lithium Ion (LI-Ion) chemistry (which is rechargeable) instead of Lithium chemistry. Don’t let this confuse you. You don’t need to be a chemical engineer to understand batteries. You simply decide if you prefer to use rechargeables on non-rechargeables and leave the rest to us!
Naturally, the Lithium Ion RCR123A’s have a charger made for them. To preserve all the life cycles (charge cycles) they were manufactured to offer, you’d want to use this charger to recharge them as needed. This way, they’ll give you continued battery performance for many years to come.
Just how many? Well, with up to 500, yes, that’s right, 500 life cycles, that’s plenty of years! Possibly, all you’ll ever need for 10 years? Of course it depends on how often you use and recharge the cells, but if you had a good supply for all the devices you own that take them, consider it to be a lonnnnnnnnnnng!
Another very important point to be aware of when it comes to the rechargeable version of the CR123A’s is that because they are made with Lithium Ion chemistry, they do not have the potential to sustain memory loss or what is commonly referred to as “memory effect”. Memory effect is what happens to a battery that needs to only be charged once it is fully discharged first. This is the case, for example with NiCD (Nickel Cadmium) rechargeable batteries. If you charge them before they have been fully depleted of power, they will remember the level at which you “topped them off” and consider that to be their new total memory. Having said that, in LITHIUM ION technology, there does NOT exist this potential. You can therefore, charge and recharge your Li-Ion cells without concern for how much energy remained in them at the time of charge.
You will pay more for Li Ion cells for this reason but this extra cost is quickly amortized over the duration of the use of the battery in worry-free recharging!
Different battery manufacturers who make photo lithium batteries are: Duracell, Energizer, Rayovac, Sanyo and Panasonic but note that they each use their own proprietary “model numbers” to market the CR123A.
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. All these model numbers are direct and equivalent replacements to the CR123A.
At MEGAbatteries.com, we also sell CR123A batteries by Titanium, Tenergy and Powerizer.
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.Listed above this article, is our entire selection of CR123A photo lithium batteries. Listed below, are quick links with specs, features and compatibility model number to CR123A’s, sold in singles. Each of these is also available in quantities of: 4, 8, 10, 12, 24 and 48.

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!
