You may have figured it out by now, but here's the question. I'm sorta new to this and was gonna do a simple 3 x 123 w/ kpr112 bulb mod to a 2c. I'm getting spare R123's in a trade. Can I use these, and if yes, with which bulb? The R123's will be 12.6 Volts instead of 9. Which bulb should I use, assuming that I wan't a cheap simple mod? Thanks.

You can use either.

The 112 will be VERY bright & short lived. May make it through a set of 3X123.

The 118 will be bright with a long life.
I connected a 118 to 4X123 briefly.
Brighter than the 112 on 3X123.
No idea about life span.

EDIT
I just saw you are referring to rechargeable 123's.
Forget about the 112.
The 118 has a chance. You're liable to be at the edge of operation.
