By using these batteries you’re maximizing the most of the ability of your electronic device by delivering the best power.

The Tenergy Lithium CR123A 3V is a one-time-use battery with a high energy density that will last 3-5 times longer than alkaline. It is specially made for high-drain devices.

Every Tenergy Propel CR123A battery incorporates PTC (pressure, temperature, current) protection. The protected batteries prevent excessive discharge that can damage lithium cells and may lead to catastrophic incidents.

Replacement models are: CR123A can replace CR123, DL123A, K123A, EL123AP, VL123A, 5018LC, and CR17345.

NOTE: Don’t try to replace CR123A with a CR2 or vice versa. They’ll not fit because of the physical size differences and technical differences in general.
