I too am in the camp of "I won't stop doing it, but have a new respect for it"
I will always match flash amps before putting the batteries in the light.
And I occasionally reverse the cells, or in the case of three 123 reverse the first and last battery.
And in the lights I have the use 123, either a pretty solid clickie such as M*g or push/twist such as SF. Meaning accidental activation is much less likely.
In addition, since I don't use the heck out of 123 lights, and I have most of a box of 50 Battery Station 123s... those shall be all I use for a while.
And I'll NEVER EVER buy Amondotech cells based on what I've read!!!
