What is the difference between the Sub-C and C-cell batteries. Sub-C are the ones used in R/C battery packs, right?. why cant C-cell be used in the packs?

If applicable C size batteries exist, sure they could be used. C cells are larger (46 mm L x 26 mm D) than Sub-C (43 mm L x 23 mm D) and simply won't fit in a lot of RC stuff designed for the Sub-C cells.

Thank you John,

So other than their actual size and weight difference C cells charge and discharge the same?

One cannot make such a broad statement, unfortunately. Every type of cell has different charge and discharge characteristics regardless of the form factor. Just as there are "good" and "bad" sub-C cells on the market there will be "good" and "bad" C cells out there.

A lot of time and money has been put into high performance sub-C cells, I don't know whether or not the same holds true for C cells.
