The "1.20" is the individual cell's voltages.

They higher you can get with this number, the better.

Sanyo HV cells average somewhere in the high 1.14's. It's not uncommon to see 1.15's with HV cells

From what I hear and have seen, GP cells average in the high 1.13's to the low 1.14's. A 1.15 with a GP cell is a little more rare.

The next number you listed, 528, would be runtime in seconds.

Wow, those specs sound awful high, 1.20 V with over 500 sec's of runtime? I'd check and make sure those batts aren't matched at 20 amps instead of 30, the industry standard is now 30A. If they say they are matched at 30A, I'm 99% sure that company is full of crap.....
