    Watson CR123A-3V reviews

    CR123A Rechargeable Lithium Battery (3V, 400mAh) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 39.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement set are fantastic! I had a very poor experience with these batteries a month ago and wrote about it here, and so Watson sent me a replacement pair. I just finished testing the new batteries. I tested it the exact same way as before - Nikon F6, Nikon 28-105 AF lens, single shot using AF and auto rewind. I sacrificed an old roll of 36 exp film, and used it over and over again. After 30 rolls shot and the power bar still on full I called it quits and had dinner! The previous set lasted three rolls before being exhausted. The standard non rechargeable batteries lasted about 12-15 rolls. I did notice one thing. When I opened the package these new batteries were sealed in shrink wrap plastic within the packet. The previous ones were not. The new batteries had no charge and took several hours to charge. The previous ones showed a charge when I got them, and fully charged within the hour. So.. I think previously I was accidentally sent someone else's returned batteries.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SHA-BANG I have used this brand in my Nikon camera and had good results. Nikon batteries last about 18% longer than the Watson. Nikon does not make this (cr123) size. Recharges in about 2 hours. I have no complaints.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work great in the Arlo Security Cameras I bought these for my Arlo Security Cameras. After reading many posts I was unsure how well they would work in the video camera. I tested them by streaming for about 30 minutes at high quality setting and they are still showing fully charged. I am very please and will be ordering more for the other cameras.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from way way cheaper here at B&H use with SB-R200

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work as expected 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 charger.
    Date published: 2016-01-24
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from No complaints so far. Very simple to use. Works as its suppossed to. Charges the CR123A batteries very quickly, and does not overheat if you forget to unplug the charger with the batteries still in it (although I do suggest that you do try to remember to unplug it for conservation sake).Only reason for the 4 stars is due to the wording (or, my lack of understanding). I bought extra batteries assumming that the charger didnt come with bateries. Turns out it does. So, if this is something you think youll need, you can save a few bucks and just get the charger as its sold.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These work great in my Sekonic!!! Love these! They are reliable and hold a charge just as well as their disposable counterparts! Do yourself a favor and use these!
    Date published: 2015-01-22
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointing performance Using these in my Nikon F6 with a Nikon AF 28-105 D lens the batteries were completely depleted from a fully charged state after shooting 3 rolls of 36 exp film. Regular lithium cells last about 15 rolls. This performance is unacceptable, maybe they are defective. I am currently travelling for a project and thankfully also packed lithium cells, but I will be contacting B&H customer service on my return.
