For C-size applications, there are several actual C-sized LSD cells available that are about 4000mah. Or you can use 3 AAA LSD cells in a 3AAA-1C adapter if you happen to have a lot of AAA LSD cells for other applications (like me).I have used Sanyo Eneloop AAs (and Sony CycleEnergy AAs) for a number of years in some applications, though not Electron Beam launch controllers. They are much better, yes, with respect to relatively low self discharge. But even Eneloops are — or were, I haven't purchased any for awhile — sold as AAs with sleeves to fit them in C-sized battery compartments.
But using any nickel chemistry cell in the PSII controller probably wouldn't be ideal because of the lower nominal voltages. They'd still probably work for in applications where a stock Electron Beam launch controller would work, though. I assume the extra few volts isn't a problem for the typical Estes BP igniter.
