"I saw this battery and thought: \"I don't have one of these,\" and proceded to buy it. I have no idea what I will ever use this for because I don't plan on buying any hot air balloon weather instruments, but it makes a great military display piece. Mine was caked in dirt or something but it washed off with just water. Yes they are unopened, but they've been rattled around a bit and mine had some scratches and a dent, so I would say grade II. But still definitely worth $10. Oh, and they aren't the size of a soup can like I thought, It's more like gigantic coffee can size."

"A great deal for a back-up for a radio or whatever. The last reviewer thought them worth 10, now they are under 2 bucks.. Perfect to store, bulky, yes, but light and stack-able. Store away for just in case."
