    Question Why Have LiFePO4 CR123A Batteries Become Hard To Find?

    So the two sets of Tenergy LiFePO4 CR123a batteries I use in my MagTac are not holding much of a charge anymore after 5 years of use. So I go to BatteryJunction.Com to get some new ones and find that they no longer sell them! I'm hardly finding any LiFePO4 CR123A batteries anywhere now. Finding plenty of the Li-Ion ones though, but I was told those were not as safe which is why I bought LiFePO4 when I bought the flashlight.

    I guess the market for this type of cell has waned, plus they haven't really improved over time unlike the usual 18650 format or even the 16340 which has variants pushing 750mAh.
