The battery is a slightly short verions of a 18500 battery and because it is IMR it does not have protection.

The rating of 1100mAh does fit very nicely with the measurements and the battery does also handle a 5A discharge current fine.

Conclusion

This cell works well at the currents I have tested.
At the current time I can only rate them acceptable, because Efest is a new company, and the batteries is not from one of the big brands.
