    Thanks for the replies. I'm ordered the 2100 AAs for some led motion lights at work which have been burning through alkaline batteries much faster than I would have thought possible.

    Thought I would bump this thread with an update, and ask a question.

    To date, in 2020 and 2021, I've bought a total of 20 AA and 24 AAA Eneloop rechargeble batteries. I think I am down to the absolute last remote control, a Samsung TV that accidentally dropped in the storage unit and became deadened as a result, so I avoided replacing that set.

    Which brings me to this: I have had a 12-pack of Surefire Lithium CR123a batteries for like forever. My old Streamlight Polytac car flashlight is dieing on me, which caused me to realize, I am out of CR123a's.

    I see these USB rechargeable CR123a's for sale, this is typical:

    Now, I should probably know this, but do ya'll think there's any issue in using these rechargeable batteries in a flashlight application? It's fairly high (steady) current, so aside from lower capacity (the rechargeables seem to have less Ah, generally, than Lithium) I don't see how it would be an issue? But I was curious if anyone else was using the rechargeables for CR123a use. TIA.

    I have limited experience: 2 batteries in one flashlight. No obvious issues other than the lower capacity(reduced run time).
