Excuse me for sounding like an idiot, but are these Sub-C size? Or are you talking about something else, like Transmitter batteries? Woops, nevermind, I noticed you said 7.2v. Nevermind, my mistake.

I've bought one just for kicks once. I opened the battery pack up and they are unlabeled cells. Just a neon green shrink label with no name. Standard spot welded together. On the charger, they still take a full charge, but on track preformance blows.

I use their NiMh's for my radio, they're 1800 mah, and will last a week or more on a charge.
