Are you sure about that?
Because CR2s are much smaller than CR123 (CR123A,16340) or RCR123 (RCR123A,17340)
Also, i have no idea what the difference between CR123 and RCR123 is, but i know CR2 is much smaller.

And somehow, they all seem to be available as Lithium and Li-ion.
Thats also how i killed my fathers surefire C2 xenon. I accidently put in li-ions instead of lithiums...
I believe your right. My eyes played tricks on me and I saw the 2 batteries as the same. Cr2's and CR123's are different Sorry



Your other question....CR123 are not rechargeable RCR123's are.

Alright makes sense... and i shouldnt allways listen to the wiki, because there it says CR123 are available as rechargeable and RCR123 isnt. :D

Maybe you are lucky and find a cheap 515 that is only 5mw.
But yea, a car sounds nice, too. :D

Nice review the host is nice but yeah 5mW is a bit low hehe i think everyone should go for 100 atleast then you atleast kinda can see the beam in darkness and dot even at distance is somewhat visible and just fuzzy like u said.

Sweet collection Alex. <5mW collections are great for photography. With a little fog I find the beams show up great. Can set up all kinds of mirror and lenses shots without having to be as worried about where the beams go as with higher powered lasers.

Thanks Ears & Eggs!

Yeah, I really enjoy my pens for that reason. I can shine them around the house, take pictures and just be worry free if I see a dot on my skin :D

The rainbow looks good. Believe it or not I can actually spot a difference (quite a noticeable one) between 594 and 589, yet I really struggle with 635 and 650.

Hey trench,

Thank you! That's pretty strange you can see a diff. Between 589 & 593.5 but not as easily on 650 & 635.

I would like to that picture didn't really show the difference between the reds too well :)

I can always see a difference between reds in your pic. Your camera is good at picking the colours up. I actually prefer 594 to 589 as well.
