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.

Hard to beat this charger w/ batteries combo compared to the price of disposables if you're going to use this odd size battery on a regular basis.

      Purchased this to use with a Nikon R1C1 Micro Flash kit. It works perfectly. Very fast recycle times.
      Will purchase more 3Volt batteries for backup. Highly recommended.

              Watson 3V CR123A batteries with charger

              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.

                              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.

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

                                      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.

                                        they make a great product that doesn't cost much to buy. I use them more than buying the name brand chargers
