That's basically how I am. I got sick of pulling new alkalines out of a box only to have them be DOA, so I standardized to CR123. I'm not a flashlight collector, but I have 3 or 4 gun mounted lights, 3 or 4 flashlights and an EOTech that all take them. I throw a box of 12 in with an occasional order and mark the purchase date on the box. It's the same concept as building a larder. Now I have enough batteries to last years and don't need to worry about them going bad as long as I use them FIFO.
