Certainly a unique idea, good to see some people are thinking outside the box when it comes to technology

There is an LED that indicates a full charge. The downside is the capacity of the cell is only 1300 Mah

Whoever thought of that must be a freakin' millionaire by now. Those would be decent for digi camera batteries. You would need a giant hub for any RC applications though.
