Some time ago there was a thread about rechargeable CR 123 batteries, especially for use with the R1C1, SU 800 and SB-200s. There are not a whole lot of choices. Tenergy make 750mah and 900mah versions. I have had 4 of the 900mah's for a year or so and they seem to work pretty well but need to be changed more often than the 1400mah disposables. Price has also been an issue.

I came across this deal the other day for 8 batteries and a 4 battery recharger: http://www.all-battery.com/Combo_TenergyTN268Charger8RCR123A_Batteries-39528.aspx

This is a pretty good price, even if it were only the batteries. Considering the slow recharge time of these, the 4 battery charger will also come in handy. Previously I had only seen 2 battery units. Since I use a R1C1 with a third SB-200, this will make keeping up use easier.

Maybe someday there will be CR123 Eneloops.
