Low cost but lower capacity – Ultrafire 3.6V 880mAh LC 16340 Protected CR123A Battery 2-Pack Reviews

Pros:
1. Rechargeable 2. Good build quality 3. Low price
Cons:
1. The length of the battery is 2mm longer than the usual CR123A. The extra 2mm space is used for the protection circuit board. Before buying it, test if this length works well in your device by sticking a 2mm thick object on the pole of the CR123A. 2. The capacity is my biggest complaint. It says 880mah on the label. Before buying it, I imagined that it might be as low as 600mah. No, it's wrong. It runs only 15mins in my flash that runs 1 hour with CR123A. So, the actual capacity is around 300-400mah. That's just half of the labeled capacity.
Other:
Bottomline:
it's cheap and has the protection circuit. Then, I just have to charge it too often.
