Hey guys I was wondering if these batteries would work in this laser. There is also AW 16340's but those would be my second choice because I have a Nitecore charger. The laser from Survival Laser says it uses 2 RCR123A batteries which I'm assuming I can use the Nitecore ones because in the description it says they are RCR123A batteries?

The Laser: Survival Laser I 445nm Parts Bundle - Laser Components Only

The link isn't working for me, but yes any 16340/rcr123a batteries will work. You can also use some 18350's but be aware that not all of them fit. You can also buy the battery extension tube and use two 18650's.

Yea sorry the sites down. And does the laser only work with batteries that have that little button on them or can they be flat?

Yes you will need the button tops, not flat tops, however you can buy some 1/8"x1/16" neodymium nickel plated magnets and use them to convert flat top batteries back and forth to button tops.
