Experience with after market D7 batteries?

We bought ten 800 mAH NiMh batteries for all of our D7's here at the office.

None will charge in the D7 drop-in charger without going to BLINK mode
after a charge..

Are they charged?  Or is this ano-charge error condition?
Maybe it just doesnt like the 800 mAH capacity since it expects 600 mAH?

THey do seem to work after a charge, but not sure how long.  Before I
did extensive testing, just thought I woiuld ask of others experience
with the drop-in charger and off-brand batteries.

Also they are nearly impossible to attach to a D7.  The plastic
housing is not well matched to the intricate holding system on the
back of the D7.
