So far it’s working as they say and the charger is good. Can be charging xtra battery and use your lights
Charger is easy to read and use, battery charge last many hours
A great charger. Easy to use.
One battery takes longer to charge than second battery
I use my flashlights every day, which drains the single use CR123a batteries very quickly. These rechargeable batteries have a great run time between charges, even at the higher lumen outputs, which will save lots of money in the long run. So far, they seem top quality! The price for two of the least expensive CR123a single use batteries now where I am is about $6 USD, plus tax. To completely recoup the price of these Fenix 3500mAh batteries, I would only need to get 6 recharge cycles out of each of them. If you factor in the price of the charger you get in this bundle, which is first rate quality as well, you need even fewer recharges to break even. I am sure I will get many more recharge cycles than 6 from each battery (The description on the website says to expect 500 recharge cycles and Fenix Lighting offers a 12 month warranty!), and probably many years of use from each one. This was a super deal for two top quality batteries and a charger, and I will definitely be buying more batteries in the future! Also, I initially had questions regarding these batteries that I directed to the customer service department. They were very kind and courteously answered all of my inquiries. I am completely satisfied with all aspects of my purchase from FenixLighting.com!
