Jason,

I use AW RCR123 in my Haiku all the time.

Also I use the AW IMR 16340.

They both work great.

You are picking a great light also.

Enjoy!

Basically IMR are a different chemistry that has less potential for problems if over discharged like normal Lith-Ions. This results in them not needing to be protected, which is why I like them, they will not suddenly cut out. They do however have less capacity.
