Forget nimh....The future is Lipo. 20 bucks more & you have a lipo pack with the same capacity. With a lot less maintenance. Of course you need a lipo charger.

Why don't the just start saling c sized nimh cells from like 3 years ago? I'm sure you could relable some 7kmah d sized nimh cells & call them the new high capacity sub c cell.

Oh my gosh, it's the latest & greatest nimh cell.

I mean, if these cells were staying the same size & still gaining capacity I could understand their pricetag. However, they are increasing in both size & weight to increase their performance. The only round cells I like today are the A123 cells which I will pick over everything else in this hobby.
