Thread: Best Bang For the Buck 123

  1. #1

    Default Best Bang For the Buck 123

    My supply of 123's is expended.. It has been awhile since I bought any and looking, I see prices vary quite a bit so which one should I consider? Not really interested in rechargables at this time.

    Looking to feed stock 6P, 9P, and an Aviator

    My vote would be Battery Junction's "Titanium Innovations" brand @ $1 or less in volume. Good cheap primary power.

    I'd get one of the more well known brands:

    If OK with a Chinese brand, I think the Titanium Innovations from Battery Junction are popular.

    I usually go for a well known brand that is good price somewhere.

    Battery Station dot com is now using Panasonic USA made cells, which are what Panasonic, some Rayovacs, Duracell, Energizer, SureFire and Streamlight use.

    They're priced reasonably.

    once again ChrisGarrett FTW. Buy in bulk even a 12 pack and the price per cell will drop.

    Thx for the tip...@ .50ea for the Pany CR2's and .80ea for Duracell CR123's (with published date codes no less) these are among the best prices I've seen.
