    Flashlight rechargeables 18650 VS CR123 Precharged batteries:
    2 issues have been noticed.
    First, I know from all my testing that you have to install little magnets between each rechargable battery since the male side are the recharchables are missing the nipple.
    Since customer in the USA are not used to installing these nipple disc the are commonly left out and the battery will not allow the voltage to pass from one end to the other without a break.
    2nd: The rechargable only emil 3.6 volts while each CR123 battery twin pack put out 6 volts. This is huge. The flashlight runs on 3 rechargables at 3 X 3.6 = 10.8 volts. While the same flashlight would roun on six cr123 equal 18 volts. This is more than 1/3 rd drop in voltage and to me this is a huge factor in poor performance with rechargeables. Once I sell out of rechargeables I will not be purchasing any longer. In side by side comparisons between rechargebles VS fixed voltage precharged, it is a hands down winner for the CR123 batteries.
