    Grinser2 RCR123 3.0V that will work with Fenix PD22

    Hi guys,

    I was wondering if anyone used rechargeables 123 with Fenix PD22. I really want to avoid buying primaries and since this light doesn't take regular 3.7V I was wondering if you could recommend me some good 3.0V batteries that won't fry my baby

    Thanks

    Tenergy LiFePO4 paired with an XTAR MP2 charger and you're all set!

    Thanks! However I searched for them here in UK and I can't find a reseller. Do you know if I can use regular Li-Ion 3.0V like EagleTac or Cytac?

    The 3.0v Li-ion generally have a higher working voltage and it takes a little bit before the circuit kicks in to reduce it. It'll do but generally not a great idea.

    You can try to buy them on batteryjunction: they ship outside the US but I'm not sure how much they charge for overseas shipping.

    I asked Fenix the same question for my PD30 and they stressed not to use Li-ion RCRs! Recommended to use Lifepo or even better primaries.
    I would ask Fenix customer service to be on the safe side, they are very quick to reply: if you drop them a mail now you'll probably find a reply tomorrow morning when you wake up.

    I managed to find them on some vapourizers webiste. Got them for £22.90 with postage so not such bad price (well really expensive in comparison to US prices!).

    Thanks again for all the help
