Not a bad price, but wrong battery – mini needs CR123A – link is to CR2. I’ve been looking in UK for CR123A cells, cheapest is about £12 for 10.

DX have these , but I’m not sure they are Panasonic, which I think is the brand to go for. They look similar, but the name Panasonic (if there) is carefully hidden.

Don’t you fancy risking rechargeable cells in the Mini-01?

Where in Denmark are you? I have CR123’s in Malmö for 175 DKK á 10 pcs. I can look at the shipping cost if you PM me an adress. If you find a better deal I would like to know :).

Take a look at ebay. You often find an ebay account like buyincoins_au for example. They have a shop, too.

2 Trustfire for $1,99
http://www.buyincoins.com/new_en/details/trustfire-16340-cr123a-3v-lithi...

4 WF for $3,40
http://www.buyincoins.com/new_en/details/4-x-cr123a-cr123-cr-123-123a-16...

If it is your first order of buyincoins, you can get 5% discount, if you use a recommender (for example me Smile buwuve is my nickname on buyincoins, too).

Light up the darkness.

Did you try the great bay ?

I just found a german seller, he may ship to denmark if you pay the shipping fees.

Hi Andreas. I'm on the wrong side of 2 bridges Smile  (Fyn)

@ Woody: DOH! Wrong link. Here's the one I was... Never mind. You already linked to them Smile

I'll be giving them away as presents to friends and family but don't want everybody to get into Li-ion rechargeable batts.

@ nikanon: Thats actually a great price. Shipping is usually only about 5-8 euro to DK so no probs. Best price for brand name batteries from a seemingly reputable seller.

Those DX cells are definitely not Panasonic, and the customer reviews of them suggest they don’t last as long. Still, if they aren’t for you … Wink

I’m in the same boat – got a couple of L2M’s for friends, and have been looking for CR123a’s. You can get 10 unbranded cells from 7Dayshop for £7.19 but I don’t know what they are like.

I’d always ask the seller what the date is on the cells – you don’t really want any that have been in a warehouse for a couple of years. The most recent Panasonic I’ve seen is 2020, and some are selling 2019 or even 2018 stock.

Inside Denmark you can get CR2 batteries from http://www.batteribyen.dk/

They are not as cheap as the German ebay, but you can get from 1 and up.

I just ordered 10pc of these Panasonic CR123 2 days ago and just recieved a note that the items were shipped.
I can write in this thread again when the batteries arrived, but I doubt that you can get wrong buying from this seller.
The rating looks good and he even states that the earliest expiration date is march 2020.

No idea of quality, but the webstore is known for it’s very good customer service.

Thank you very much for all your suggestions. I've ended up buying from a local source who can actually supply them at a very favorable price when I just take a minimum of 50 batteries. Which is fine because then the price of the 50 comes down to 365 DKR ~ 49 Euro~ 61 US$. With free delivery. I never knew they could be had for that little locally!
