    I get my Surefires for $1.50 from work :)

    But I'm currently using rechargeables.

    I did some research today at work since I don't want to keep spending money on CR123As....the DealExtreme rechargeable (UltraFire) 3.6v RCR123s + charger was the best deal at $22 shipped for the charger and 4 batteries. Also did some research on the runtimes etc and they're right up there with the best.

    Make sure your flashlight can take rechargeable CR123

    That, too. I know my T10C2 will handle the 3.6Vs just fine.

    I use the Titanium brand batteries from Battery Junction, but those Tenergy batteries look good, too.

    if you buy a case from surefire they come out to 1.88 shipped ea. thats probably as cheap as you can get quality 123s
