    Looking for batteries for my new light I ordered up. Anyone have a good source or recommendation of where to buy a couple dozen?

    Batteries Plus right there in Beaverton Just a couple of doors East of Tom's Pancake House. You can buy them in bulk there.

    Any idea what they are charging? Looks like they can be had for $1.75 each online in bulk.

    I don't really remember as it's been a while since I bought some. I would just call them if I were you. Keep in mind to factor in shipping costs when comparing on-line pricing to in store.

    Check out brightflashlights.com... His prices are low and shipping rates are very good... I've purchase batteries, flashlights and AR parts from Calvin. Last time I ordered batteries I believe it was $15.00 for 12 batteries Shipping for all the stuff I ordered was USPS flat rate box.

    I'll second BrightFlashlights. I've purchased many lights and Surefire parts from Kevin and Calvin in the past, great prices and great customer service.

    My second choice would be these Streamlight batteries from Amazon.com (link below) which are a great price for a dozen premium CR123s. Buy two 12 packs and get free shipping or combine one pack with purchase of other items to get over the $25 minimum for free shipping. These (which I believe are re-branded Panasonics), Surefire (also re-branded Panasonics), Energizer, and Duracell are all top notch CR123s.

    There has been a lot of discussion of this on another messageboard frequented by cops, agents, and real emergency planning operators. The consensus is that the Surefire website has the best prices. AND A WARNING: there are counterfeit "Surefire" batteries out in the internet and in retail stores, so only buy direct from Surefire to guarantee getting the genuine product. They also warn of the dangers of frequent bursting/fires from ANY Chinese-made brand of C123 batteries.......................elsullo :confused:
