Great product and customer service!
April 25, 2015
Received 5 of these just a few days and immediately began to test them out. Upon arrival one of the cells was completely dead while the rest were fine, in the 3.85 range. I charged the 4 which were fine and contacted battery junction about the one defective cell. The person I spoke with was excellent and quickly took care of the issue, sending a brand new one to me!
I did not expect such great customer service and wanted to include this in the review so others would know that Battery Junction does a great job trying to keep their customers happy!
Back to the batteries, the four I tested hold right around 650-675mAh which is excellent for rechargeable batteries of this size. They are well built and have great protection features as well to prevent over discharge. I tested them and they shut off as they should leaving a resting voltage of 3.45V open circuit, about as far as you want to discharge a RCR123 battery.
They also hold their charge well. A good measure of a quality cell is to fully charge it to 4.20V and test it several days later to see how far they discharge. A bad or cheap cell will drop below 4.10V within a short period of time. These are good cells and only dropped to 4.19V after several days, excellent!
In short if you're looking for an inexpensive RCR123, these are a great bargain and perform quite well!
Cons:None other than the one dead cell, something which can easily happen and battery junction resolved!
