  • Can you please provide the weight in gm or oz for a meter. Also for a meter of the 60 LED/meter. Herb

  • I have been using the Tenergy Li-Ion RCR123A 3.0V 750mAh LiFePO4 Rechargeable Battery in an application where weight, size and safety were the prime selection criteria. I emphasize safety because ‘normal chemistry’ LiIon batteries misuse can result in some spectacular fireworks. The user of these batteries is a consumer Vs an engineering type. <br />

    I chose these LiFePO4 for their intrinsic safety. I am also using the Tenergy charger recommended. So far everthing is working fine, and I’m not expecting any problems. Another manufactures charger would also work providing it met the RCR123A charge cut off voltage of 3.6V.<br />
