    Default Battery Station 123A vs SureFire 123A

    Ok I give up I can't find it <font color="blue"> </font> [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/help.gif[/img]. I know there has to be discussion about SureFire 123A vs Battery Station 123A. Who can tell me if there is a difference of more than $1.25/$1.00 between them as far as performance goes [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]. As far as I know the same manufacturer makes them both [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/icon3.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thinking.gif[/img].
    Any facts or opinions [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/rolleye11.gif[/img].

    The SF battery is still a bit better than ours. We do have another "higher rate" improvement coming in the next lot. I think you would be happy with our battery but will not bash the SF battery as it is a good battery.

    Thanks for the honest reply <font color="blue"> </font> [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img], but can you tell me what makes the difference? I quote you:
    "We do have another "higher rate" improvement coming in the next lot." Will this new lot be comparable to SureFire's?

    There's about a 2% difference in performance. Let's exaggerate and say that there's a 10% difference.

    There's a 25% difference in cost. You do the math.

    There are some die hards here that will use nothing but SF, but I'd say that the larger numbers of us here use Battery Station's.

    I am almost exclusively using 2 types of batts:
    SF123
    BS123

    Can't go wrong with either of them IMHO.
