Get CR123A performance out of a AA!

4 battery minimum order. Batteries are shrink wrapped in packs of 4. Please order in multiples of 4.

Many of the high output LED flashlights we've become used to run on 3.0V Lithium CR123A batteries because they are more powerful, lighter in weight, and have greater capacity than Alkalines. Typically, a flashlight manufacturer will offer a watered-down version of their CR123A lights that uses AA cells to appease those looking to stay with the familiar AA. This usually results in a nice AA flashlight but with compromised lumen output. Now, the compromise is over!

These 3 Volt Lithium 14505 primary (non-rechargeable) cells are like having a CR123A in the shape of a AA battery. While we have found these work in many regulated LED flashlights, use this new power source for any application that can benefit from the performance offered by these cells. These are a great substitute for Li-Ion 14500 cells and offer greater reliability and shelf-life.

TITANIUM CR14505 is a UL Recognized Component!

Features and Specifications:
  • Nominal Voltage: 3.0V
  • Chemistry: Lithium Manganese Dioxide (Li-MnO2)
  • Dimensions (L x D): 1.99" x 0.57" (50.5 x 14.5 mm)
  • Weight: 0.6 oz (17 g)
  • Nominal Capacity: 1500mAH
  • Continuous Standard Load: 20mA
  • Cut-off Voltage: 2.0V
  • Maximum Continuous Discharge Current: 1000mA
  • Maximum Pulse Discharge Current: 3000mA
  • Operating Temperature: -40°F to 140°F (-40°C to 60°C)
  • UL Approved
Warning: These batteries are 3.0V and cannot be used as a direct substitute for 1.5V Alkaline AA batteries. Please do not use these in your device unless you are certain the device is able to handle the higher voltage. These batteries will damage most electronics that require AA cells. Do not attempt to recharge these batteries.

CR123A performance in 1xAA form
December 5, 2014
There are only certain lights in which this battery will work... they need to be capable of handling the voltage. But in the right light, you get the same output as 2xAA in the 1xAA form factor. I use it in my Olight S15-L2 and my Fenix LD10, and my Xeno E03. The Olight S15-L2 is designed to work as a 2xAA (with extender), and its circuit is actually optimized for the higher voltage -- so this is the perfect application for using this battery in the 1xAA configuration. (Don't use 2xCR14505, or you will fry the light!) The Fenix LD10 (1xAA) uses the same head, circuit, etc. as the LD20 (2xAA) version, so again it's a good application. The only caveat is that the LD10's sensitive (but efficient) boost circuit will go into direct drive when the battery voltage is even slightly higher than alkaline AA outputs, -- and so briefly when running a fresh CR14505 the low & medium & high modes are all the same brightness. After about 5 minutes of runtime (on my sample anyway) with a fresh cell, the battery voltage dropped enough that the low & med modes returned to normal. So in my experience the ~3V output of this battery is right on the cusp of of exceeding the circuit's intended input, but it resolves quickly. This behavior has been well documented when running Energizer Ultimate Lithium (L91) cells in the LD20, so I'm confident that no damage is occurring to the light. The Xeno E03 reacts slightly differently, and all the modes just get brighter :) The low mode (which wasn't especially low to begin with on this light) gets up to about medium level, and the other modes follow suit. I've read of folks running even higher voltage 14500 Li-ion chemistry cells in the Xeno without incident, so again I'm confident no damage is occurring. To my knowledge Battery Junction is the only USA distributor of these 14505/CRAA cells... and the price is very good given the specialty/limited market.
Pros:
Same voltage, shelf life, capacity, performance in cold, light weight, etc. as regular CR123A cells, but in the shape of a AA battery. These cells are less expensive than an L91. ONE (1) of these cells works wonderfully in lights that are designed to run in both 1xAA and 2xAA configurations.
Cons:
They don't have the same capacity as an L91 cell... but the higher voltage partially makes up for that. Just be careful what light you put them in, and don't double them up!

Sweet cells

I bought these for a friend as a gift along with a Foursevens AA. I love this solution for a single AA light. TONS of power, good runtimes, and I like the flexibility and size of AA. Great product.

Pointed to these batteries from CPF...Please don\'t discontinue these Titanium Inovations! These are awesome in my Quark AA and Quark MiNi. These have enough juice to power my AA2 XML head. I think its brighter than the two Lithium primaries I have in my AA2s.

Great Product for Flashlight Afficianados!
May 4, 2012
I prefer the AA battery format over the CR123 format because it is a universal cell - you can always scrounge up a AA battery. Until this product cam along, that\'s always meant sacrificing power (unless the light could handle Li-Ion cells). This product is basically a AA-shaped CR123 cell - same voltage, same performance, and very similar run-time. Like the above reviewer, I find these cells to excel in the Quark Mini AA. They also do well in the Fenix L1T/ L1D, since their circuits are also set up to handle up to 3.0V.

Excellent idea and product!
May 8, 2011
I picked four of these up to run in my 4Sevens Mini AA and I\'m very impressed. I don\'t have the equipment to measure lumens, but just eyeballing the Mini AA on high I\'d say that it\'s putting out at least 150 OTF lumens with these cells. Couple that with the great reputation and affordability of the Titanium Innovations lithium cells and I think they\'ve created a winner. I\'ll definitely be buying more of these.
