Got this to recharge the batteries for my scuba diving light. Works as advertised. Definitely worth it since CR123A batteries can be pricey and hard to find. Especially if you're out of the country on a dive trip. I would highly recommend this because the normal burn time for CR123A batteries is usually only an hour or 2. After a few charges this product has already paid for itself. No more wasting money on new batteries all the time.

Best for CR2 batteries

With CR2 batteries the spring mechanism works OK but for RCR123 batteries it is too tight and I need to use a rubber band to keep the batteries inside the charger while charging. Read complete review

Better to buy a CR123 only charger.

          Watson 3V CR123A batteries with charger

          By Paul Allen

          from NYC

          Comments about Watson Dual Rapid Charger for 3V CR123A and CR2 Lithium Batteries with 2 CR123A Batteries:

          I purchased the Watson CR123 rechargeable batteries(2)with charger for a Minolta 35mm film camera. I was reluctant at first because the disposable batteries are very expensive. BUT I tried them out and they are GREAT...They came already charged and work just as well with my camera. PLUS I get 2 batteries and a Charger for the price of 2 disposable batteries...I use other Watson chargers and am satisfied with their performance.

                      This will save me a ton of money. I have a flashlight that is extremely bright for walking my dog at night near alligators. It uses up the batteries in 5 days, so I needed to be able to recharge the batteries. I also bought the batteries.

                        I couldn't find the 3.7 volt version when buying the charger, batteries and tactical flashlight so I mistakenly assumed (I know, I know...)it would charge the 3.7 volt batteries, too. It doesn't now I must buy the 3.7 volt version and am stuck with 2 ea. of the 3 volt batteries w/charger that I don't want or need. but it does charge quick and stays charged, too.

                          Instead of using up hard to find, and expensive, CR123 and CR2 batteries (Nikon F6 , Leica SF24 flash, Fuji Instax), just get this.
                          Recharge and go.

                              As expected and all good, but maybe a little short on life. Not really a problem since it's, well, rechargeable, but you have to stay on top of it a bit.

                                This set a bought as a backup to my current set that I have had for a year. I love, love, love these for my RadioPoppers. I have yet to run them down using them for my receive and transmitters for my strobe. The charger is fast and I love that it fits right into my camera bag.

                                  I got this 2 rechargable battery with charger set for my Sekonic L-758DR meter. I probably never have to buy a battery for it again, at least not for a very long time. It is affordable and environmentally friendly.

                                          Great little cr123 charger and comes with 2 rechargeable batteries.
                                          Pesky cr123's are not as easy to find as AA or AAA and always seem to go bad when your not in a position to rush out and buy them. Salesman (Gary in pro lighting) recomended this charger and it was a great buy! Have 3 photo items that take this slightly off-beat battery and now I will not have to worry about buying cd123's anymore!
