Need much closer shot and/or dimensions?

Looks like the cells are just under an inch thick by 1-7/8"

2.8ah so it could be a sub C or C size. Even old (1990)sub C cells were 1000 - 3000mah.
Picture isn't enough info to know.

Those batteries appear to be, what one would find in a emergency florescence ballast to provide temporary lighting. C size NICAD 4500 ma. All the ones i have plucked apart are 2S. That one looks like 3S. The box shown on the right of picture suggest that's what it is.

Oh yes they are nicad. The battery just sold on ebay today so I guess I will give up on the project not having it for reference.
