Default Buying Batteries Through Tower?

Any of y'all had experience with buying batteries through Tower? With the $20 off $50 coupon you can get some pretty good prices. The problem though is Tower doesn't list accurate numbers for the cells. Any way to figure what numbers you will get when ordering though Tower?

I have to agree with EddieO. I've bought some bash/practice batteries from Tower and they were ok for the purpose I bought them for, but I wouldn't race them. Support your LHS and buy batteries you can check out first.

I agree with the rest of the guys that have posted. Its hit
or miss with Tower batteries especially matched packs. A
lot of times the numbers in the product description is
either incorrect or outdated. They gave me the run
around when I asked them to check the labels on the cells.
Last year I bought what were claimed 1.185v Orion SP batts
but what I got was 1.176v's. Just be disappointed if you
do get batts from there.

Thanks for the info guys. I wish the big matchers would have specific part numbers for specific battery numbers, then buying through Tower would be easy.
