    Default Is "Stellar" Brand CR123 Like Titanium's?

    Light Junction sells two types of "Stellar" cells and one looks similar to the Titanium brand. Any info or experience with these? Thanks.
    I'm absolutely certain that I need another flashlight.

    Has anybody used these cells? I haven't come up with anything when searching. They claim to be PTC protected and sell for less than a dollar, I believe.

    Maybe I'll have to be the Guinea pig and try some. Any buzz on these Stellar CR123 cells?

    You could try using them to save 10 cents over 3-4 months of battery life, or you could spend the extra 10 cents and buy the Titanium Innovations CR123's that are proven to be good. If it were a significant savings, like if they were $2 less, and you were going through 5 per week or something, it would be worth it to see if you might save some money by using the other brand, but since its only 10 cents, and most EDC lights that run on 1 CR123 wont need a new battery for 1-6 months, then is it really worth it? I have been using the Titanium CR123's for about a year, and they've been great. The one in my EDC light is now 3.5 months old.

    The few cents savings isn't important. Are there vendors other than Battery Junction for the Titanium brand?

    I have been using Stellar 1400mah batteries and they seem to last a bit longer than the Titianium in my lights.

    VM 2 how are the Titaniums working out? I see fenix Outfitters sells the cells as well.

    Well there ya go.
    I'd get a known proven battery and not quibble over a few cents for something else.
    There is also a battery review here on cpf. You might want to review the charts and see how the Titanium's did.

    Titanium Innovations CR123's are only $1 apiece even if you only buy 1 at battery junction. They are only $48 for 50 of them there. I bought about 8 of them 1.5 years ago and I'm still using them. Ive had zero issues with them.

    +

    The proven way t get safe 123s, is with a brand that orders from one of the Panasonic factories. Just look for made in USA or Japan.
