Conclusion

The capacity of this battery is good for a 26500 battery, but it is missing the usual IMR high current capabilities.
Generally the performance of this battery is close to a 3100mAh 18650 battery, except it is worse at high current. This makes the battery best for short designs with a single battery and not much more than 3A current draw.
