This is a very high current battery, but the 35A rating might be a bit optimistic.
These curves shows a very good battery, there is a good tracking between the batteries and not much capacity drop from 0.2A to 20A.
Usual a battery with unspecified cell will not get better rating than acceptable, but there is no doubt this is a very good cell that is used here.
