when i spoke to the battery junction people today, the lady advised me that they were uncertain if the description was incorrect or the picture was incorrect.
she said that the indented part on the battery would indicate that it would seem to be protected. the batteries i have have that indention. i'm sending my batteries back tomorrow.
*disclaimer: i know nothing about batteries.
