I hope you have access to a device for welding solder tabs to these cells. Never solder directly to any kind of battery contact.

Yes, there is. Here is a version with solder tabs. NiMH cells with low self discharge ("ready to use") and solder tabs generally seem hard to get.

Since not everyone seems to be familiar with this term: this stands for NiMH batteries with extremely Low Self Discharge.

That's the essential point. ;-)
