    Default Test/Review of Panasonic Lithium Power CR123

    Panasonic Lithium Power CR123


    Official specifications:
    • Nominal voltage (V): 3
    • Nominal capacity (mAh): 1550
    • Continuous standard load (mA): 20
    • Operating temperature (C): -40 ~ +70




    A small battery that can deliver a lot of energy.











    The battery starts at 3.2 volt when new, when loaded the working voltage is closer to 2.5 volt.
    Notice the strange discharge curve at 3A, this is probably because the PTC in the battery got hot and disabled it.










    Conclusion

    This is the first CR123 I test, making it impossible to comment on performance, except saying that this small battery size packs a lot of power.
    See the CR123A article linked below for more information about CR123 batteries.



    Notes and links

    How is the test done and how to read the charts
    CR123A and rechargeable substitutes
    My website with flashlight, battery and charger information: lygte-info.
    More than 200 battery reviews and 80 charger reviews.
    Compare 18650 LiIon batteries or smaller (RCR123, 16340, 14500, 10450) LiIon batteries.

    Excellent test review. HKJ! Thanks a lot.

    Do you have a plan to review the Panasonic CR123A Industrial Litium (3V)?

    No, I have not seen them in any local shops.
    My main purpose with the primary battery reviews was to get some comparison to the rechargeable batteries, but due to a couple of request I am testing some more batteries.
    Generally I look for batteries I can get in Denmark (EU is also possible), and are sold over most of the world.

    Actually I have used the Panasonic CR123A Industrial Lituim batteries for the flashlights review, and just wondering the performance. They are popular with Korean (especially me ).

    It looks like the most common brands in Denmark are Energizer, Duracell and Panasonic, but only in retail package.
