Toyota NiMH Questions

Is anyone out there actually using these cells, reconfigured? I'm thinking, with the availability and price there is little to not like, here. Toyota is a bit close mouthed on actual specs. 7.2v nominal per cell,, any idea where this is at full charge? Safely discharged? Charging appears to be a temperature management issue, any experience with amperage inputs to a 72v pack? Shutoff temps? Thanks up front.
