    Default Panasonic, Surefire or Duracell CR123 Most current date

    Looking for a retailer where I can best be assured that I will get the most up to date CR123 Batteries in the brands, Panasonic, Surefire or Duracell.

    Every time I order from a vendor, it's a crap shoot on the date of manufacture and it's annoying to get batteries already years old.

    Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thanks.

    B&H? Add a note or call and ask for the most up to date. The prices are reasonable for the cr123 batteries.

    Depending on how Panasonic USA's (makes them for everybody) production runs are set up, you'd want expiry dates of 2029, or perhaps 2018, which would be ~10 years out from now.

    I would suggest just emailing everybody and asking.

    I would buy the best deal as long as the batteries are within the past few years. CR123A's last a VERY long time at nearly full charge.
