Both cells vented. As is often the case with high current cells they do not disable output when they vent.

The battery discharge curves looks very nice up to 15A, in the 20A curves something goes wrong with my battery holder, probably because the battery vents.

Both cells handles 15A perfectly.

Something goes wrong with one of the cells at 20A.

And the other cell has a problem at 30A.

Conclusion

The cells looks very good up to 15A, but a continuous load at higher current can be problematic.
