    just about any place that sells batteries. Best Buy, Circuit City, Radio Shack and the likes for sure.

    I buy the Titanium brand. They were recently bought out by battery Junction. They're $1.00 each + shipping.

    Edit:

    I believe the battery station brand from batterystation.com is of reasonably good quality and I've been pleased with them. I still haven't tried rechargable but dealextreme has "trustfire" rechargable for like 2 for $5. Be warned that most are rated for slightly higher voltage output than the regular cells and could toast some lights.

    Out of my mind, brb never.
    :rofl::rofl::rofl: Holy shit @ buying batteries @ $15 a pair. Surefire batteries all the way.

    12 pack of Surefire batteries: $28.99

    12 Energizer/Duracell @ $14.99 x2 = $89.94

    As far as I know, there are only 3-4 manufacturers who make the CR123s, and odds are you are getting the same bettery, if not a better one when you go with Surefire over a reg. mainstream battery.
