"CR123A rechargeable a viable option?"

Hi Guys,
On a recent trip away, my first set of CR123A batteries went flat in the two SB R200's
Naturally, I had a back-up set,
Thought it would be a good time to check on prices, to my shock, the local store was selling them for about $10 each!
I guess cheaper prices could be sought but wondered if any here have changed over to rechargeable batteries for their SB R200's and SU 800?
Regards,
Gary

Hi Gary,

I interpret from your question that you have (or were) using throwaways. If so, you will spend a small fortune on batteries. I originally purchased Delkin Devices eFilm RCR123A batteries for my (4) SB200, SU800, and my Sekonic L358. I also picked up, from Delkin, two rechargers that will recharge one battery each. In an earlier post, "CR123A Question", Marty, Mick, and Scott gave some valuable information that I went with and ordered from Battery Junction. I ordered four more RCR123A batteries with a charger that will charge two batteries simultaneously and they also had plastic holders for the batteries that would protect them from being shorted out. I ordered three of these because I now have 12 of these batteries. The cost, including shipping, was about $42. Considering the number of recharges I should get as opposed to the "Copper Top" throwaways should make it much cheaper in the long term. The two sites you could look at are: BatteryJunction.Com and Delkin.Com. I hope this helps.

Mike

Appreciate your reply Mike,
Yes I have been using "throwaways", although the r1c1 kit was second hand, I bought it off a friend and it was hardly used, perhaps once or twice and came with 6 Kodak CR123A throwaways

many thanks for the links,
Regards,
Gary
