Ebay fake battery warning.

Some ‘genuine’ CR123 batteries which are utter garbage.

Can anyone recommend where i can get some GOOD ones please, ideally in the UK although that isn’t vitally important.

I used to buy lots of primaries from battery junction back in the pre-18650 days. Some were stored for 10+ years and were still charged and ready to use.

Ahh, good call. Never thought of these folks (18650.co.uk is my 1st port of call) but my 26650s came from Ecolux and they seem fine.
Thank you.

For those in the US, Dorcy.com is having a “buy one get one free” sale this week on their website.
I’m stocking up on alkaline batteries for the “hope there’s no earthquake” box.
