All of the D7 packs that I've seen are made with "2/3 A" battery
cells. Mine had 600 mAh cells in it. I work at a battery store and
the highest capacity we have is 1100 mAh in NiMH.
I've never come across a 2/3 A battery made of Li-Ion, so I'd imagine
it would take some creative redesign to use Li-Ion.
