Default Buying RCR123 rechargeable batteries

Hey guys I need some batteries that I can use in the pocket mini host (jayrobs).. he has suggested i use RCR123 rechargeable batteries.. but looking around on dx I only found these :

http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.998

Are these the right ones?? plus do they come with adapters (not really a problem since i can get them at the local shops).. If these are not the right ones does any one have some for sale??

Thanks

Pro tip: That link is just a charger alone. It does not come with a battery.

eBay always has plenty of batteries, just make sure you check out the seller feedback first as always. They are often sold in packs rather than individually.

Also try and find batteries that have some protection circuit to stop you over/under charging the battery. UltraFire are also a pretty good brand, and often do put in a protection circuit. Note that this protection circuit can add around 50mm to the length of the battery, although usually no issue at all.

This looks like a fair deal:

Finally, what kind of adapter are you referring to?

If you're referring to US/UK/European electrical outlet adapter (aka travel adapter) then you need your own. However, the chargers more often than not take 110V to 240V so you don't need an adapter with a voltage converter. Make sure you check what electrical system the charger is compatible with and get a tiny travel adapter if required (like $2 / 1 probably).
