The size seems to be very close.

Edit: Has anyone charged a depleted OEM #11 lipo with an external charger to see what the actual capacity is?
Yes... some tests were done when when the external battery packs were being tested. I forget exactly what I measured... slightly less than the advertised capacity, but more than 180 mAh. You can do a search to find the external battery posts if you need more accurate numbers.
