Surefire stops short of saying that one of its flashlights was involved in a fire resulting from poorly made batteries. However it does say that on March 1st, 2008 an on-duty police officer had his flashlight catch fire while on his belt. The cause of the fire was found to be the battery.
SureFire says that consumers should be very wary of using foreign made lithium 123A batteries, especially those marked PRC or Made in China. Naturally SureFire recommends its own USA made 123A batteries.
