Default 1100mah NiMH

Does anyone know where i can buy individual 1100mah NiMH cells? i need to make a reciever pack. i see orion and trinity has packs that already put together, but they don't say which company makes the cells. i've checked the sanyo website and towerhobbies website but they only have up to 800mah NiCAD cells. So if anyone know where i can get the 1100mah cells please post here. Thanks

Go here: http://www.batterystation.com/nicads.htm, the batteries used to make the 1100 packs are actually the:

NT-100AFH GP 2/3A 17 26.7 NiMH Flat Top 1000mah $2.00

I went to my local battery place, he carries all kinds of batteries with an Orion pack, the guy told me that 2/3A NIMH's maximum is 1000MAH but that they actually store more than they are rated, so I tried it out by purchasing 5 cells from him (his price is $4.00 per cell) and built the pack, discharged it with a 2 amp bulb then charged it ....it took 1260MAH!!! , this compared to my Orion pack which takes 1150MAH.

You can buy 1600 mAH NiMH cells at your local Target, Wal-Mart, K-Mart, etc...

That's what I use for my radios.
