Fenix%2014500%20800mAh%20ARB-L14%20(Orange-Black)-Capacity

There is a significant capacity difference between the cells, this is not very good. The cells can deliver about 2A. this is fine for a 1.6A rated cell.

Conclusion

Both the cells has very good capacity and can deliver the rated current, but I do not like the difference between them.
