The reason I will be running IMR in my new A3 setup is due to the current draw.

I still prefer AW IMR cells, although they seem to be increasingly difficult to source.

By the way, mismatched batteries can be a serious safety concern, even under modest current demands :caution:

You are sure right about that. But come to think of it, I haven't run any 2xCR123A setups in probably 18 months. Read too many horror stories here and elsewhere about all the risks of abusing your lithium ion batteries.

Still trying to to wrap my brain around how a normally polarized battery can actually be pushed into reverse polarity. I would have thought the cell would just go to zero volts and stop there, or short out. That's just WRONG. LOL.

The (other) A3 host I posted earlier has also since been completed, with this absolutely gorgeous light engine by VoB ...
