Default High drain NIMH? Reliable?

Im looking for a really reliable but still high drain NIMH. High Capacity is second to these two. Ideally Sub-C size but Im willing to consider C or D if it has to be.

Anyone know where I can still find GP NIMH cells? Or packs?

Might not be exactly what you're looking for, but I've used these with good results:

Yea the tenergies (especially propels) have great ratings, but Ive heard bad things about reliability. I'd be fine with this for RC as I'd probably use it mainly for practice but....cant have my photo lights go out in the middle of a wedding!

edit:

Anyone know where I can find sub-c size gold peak or EP batteries? Seem to be the best. GP 3300 looks especially good

can I ask why u need nimh??? Is this for a rc or other?? If it is for rc all new chassis is coming out with able to run a lipo single cell or 2s.
Unless your running a old chassis I can understand but retro fitting a lipo in there will be far better.
Just wondering is all. Unless u got a charger that doesnt do lipo then I can understand too as u dont want to upgrade.

Yea I have an older charger and two older cars. I also want ot use the same battery type for photography lights ( I do both ). The cars I have both use normal style sub-c stick batteries so I figured I may as well stick to NIMH

Anyone know the discharge rates on the GP 330SCH? They are the high capacity series, not high drain, but I still think they should suffice....I hope

Try cheapbatterypacks.com they have some 4500 and 5000's that are pretty good. I know the rc pullers use them and they pull alot of amps. I have bought quite a bit from them and they are great to deal with and have good prices.

I have used cheapbatterypacks.com lots in the past and have had very good luck in the past. For NiMh packs you can't go wrong and the prices are solid.
