I need to buy a few of these, maybe 20 or so. Where is a good place to get them from?
Thanks

Agreed with the rest here...Go to ebay, OR all others....Cannot beat SF's price on batts!
I just bought 15 boxes a few weeks back. In fact approx. 10 mos ago, I was at Surefire and was talking to Paul Kim (VP of engineering) and he must have had 10,000 batteries sitting behind him in a corner! Pretty funny along with his desk of a few hundred lights scattered around!

Try Battery Station batteries. They are a good brand and they work great.

Coltrifle -

Are the batteries from the Battery Station less than $1.25 each. I doubt it and seeing as how that's what SureFire sells them fore I can't for the life of me figure out whay anyone would buy from someone else. Every time I order over the internet form SureFire the batteries arrive in three days. Can't beat the price or service.

Just my .02

Battery station sells them from time to time at .99 (if your a member of the CPF forums) . His batteries are very high quality.

On the other hand , if you buy a box of 72 and a box of 12 from surefire, you get free shipping as you hit the $100.00 limit.

Thanks guys, I'm new to these types of flashlights and batteries as I've been using a SL Stinger for years now. I'd like to get them from a sight supporter, and get the best quality as well.

I use Surefire -123's in my camera equipment as well as my lights, with the price the way they set them and the same quality as the higher-priced shiz, can't go wrong.

Here's a real good reason to buy the best - wasn't using quality batteries like SureFire

I have had problems with SOME Surefire batteries. They suddenly burn out after like 10-15 minutes of use. Others from Surefire have been fine, but I notice that some seem to die suddenly (about 20% of them that I have gone through)

Mad Dog:

I paid $1 a piece and the service was awesome. I've used the batteries a lot and I like them a lot. The SureFire batteries are fine and I've got a few but I usually use the Battery Station type. I can't tell a difference. Last time I bought them I bought 200 and I think the shipping was $4.
