The red 33's were supposed to be a higher voltage cell then the green and orange ones. The color has no bearing on where they are sold. I have both types and live in the US.

Longer in that the positive button sticks out of the cell more I believe.

yea there is no realy difference between the cells. the large companies such as orion and trinity like the red wrap and other companies use the green and gold. but really there is no difference in runtime or voltage. a cell is a cell and they are always different. so realy dont worry about the look of them unless you like the duracell look over the red and buy cells from a company that has them. but there is bassically no difference performance wise, just looks
