The battery might be useable up to 24A, but do not expect a long runtime, it is less than 5 minutes at 20A.

With the low capacity they are fast to charge and I could have charged them much faster if I had used the maximal charge rate.



Conclusion

The battery is good battery, but with the low capacity it is mostly for special high current applications.
