This cell from AW is fairly thin, this means it can usual replace 2xCR123 in size (Voltage will be lower).

AW%2017670%201600mAh%20(Black)%202016-Capacity

The discharge curves looks fairly good, at least up to 3A, but the cell cannot really deliver 5A or 7A. This is perfectly acceptable for a 3.2A rated cell.

AW%2017670%201600mAh%20(Black)%202016-Temp-3.0

The cell warms up at 3A, but nothing problematic.


AW%2017670%201600mAh%20(Black)%202016-Temp-5.0

Conclusion

The battery looks like it is a old design with low capacity and low current handling, but the cell is still good as a replacement for 2xCR123 cells in equipment (flashlights) that can run on the lower voltage.
