Oh crap . . . Were they blue with yellow lettering or were the BS cells blue with white lettering? This is very important.dsmegst wrote:It just happened about 1/2 an hour ago but I will be contacting them tomorrow. These are standard BATTERY STATION units, bought years and years ago. I still have some left so I was using them up instead of going with my usual AW RCR123 batteries.
Those would be their Titanium brand CR123 cells. Matt, owner of Battery Junction, has a great reputation. His cells are Made in China, but apparently Matt gets them produced at a factory with QC standards. On a personal note though, I prefer not to take a chance with any Made in China primary CR123 cells. Matt's cells are highly regarded though by flashlight enthusiasts.bh49 wrote:I am sorry to hear about this.
What are standard Battery Junction units. I cannot find this brand on their website.
Pretty darn pertinent from where I'm sitting. But there also seems to be a bit of overreaction in that thread. I had one incident in 15 years of using the CR123a batteries and with a manufacturer that's been known to have issues. The good thing is Battery Station addressed it by changing makers. I sent them an email also so it'll be interesting to hear what they have to say.Bluntrauma wrote:This isn't the 1st time I have heard about problems with this battery.

This is an old thread so I don't know how pertinent it would be to this discussion but I knew I had seen it somewhere.
Kevin is a stand-up guy. He just honestly didn't know back then that the company in China he had contracted out the work to was cutting such massive corners, in terms of Q.C.Anonymous wrote:Nice, good customer service.
