    i would like to buy a semi-large quantity of 123A batteries for my surefire flashlights...but buying Surefire brand SUCKS

    plus buying locally = $$$

    anyone used an online shop to buy batteries?

    Is there a Frys electronics around you? I believe the one over here carries them...
    2-pack is less than 5 bucks!!

    Jeff, don't know if the price is still good... on the thread where Chris told us about the flashlights was a link to a store that had a good price on them. Don't have time right now to find the link...

    I've made quite a few purchases from Thomas Distributing over the years. I've only bought rechargeable batteries, chargers and testers, so I can't tell you if their lithium prices are good or not. Shipping was always good and the one DOA return I made was handled without problem.

    Thanks for the link. Saving 55 cents each is great, as the Surefire's M6 eats thru batteries. :thumbsup:
