    CTL1616 , CTL1616F Difference? Newest Model rechargeable battery

    Doing some reading into rechargeable batteries for my Gshock and I see online they list CTL1616 as a replacement. On the net I have found CTL1616, CTL1616 with Japan and 2 mark, and finally CTL1616F.

    Which is the newest model and what is the difference. So far the CTL1616F seems to be the most popular but how knows if those pictures are accurate or not.

    Thanks

    I also noticed some off the CTL616F models are from Japan and others from Indonesia. Anything to worry about where it comes from?

    The newer ones are the CTL-1616F. I have one here from PacParts and it is a Panasonic from Indonesia.

    Any difference between the Japanese and Indonesian units?

    I really do not think it matters where it is made. Just like G-Shocks made in China, Thailand, or Japan, the QC is all the same.

    Panasonic lithium batteries are used by the best suppliers of batteries by whatever name and from where. :)

    Casio only uses Panasonic. For the type number only the battery type (CTL) and size (1616) are most important. If a manufacturer might improve it's performance, they probably add an extra letter.

    I got the CTL1616 (JAPAN 2) replacement with new mark CTL1616F Made In Indonesia (online order). Seem now the new product is Made In Indonesia (IMHO). Strangely authorized sales service may not readily available. So It's work know and hope it can be better than the previous CTL1616
