The protection circuit looks like it checks all cells, but it do not have balancing.
There is no strain relief on the cable.

GB%208.4V%206800mAh-Capacity

Capacity varies with load and due to cable/connector resistance (Both pack and my test cable) the over discharge protection kicks in at different voltage (At the battery it will be 6 volt all the time).
I wonder why the 5A trace has as little capacity as it does. The Panasonic NCR18650B cell can handle 5A.

Conclusion

I like the rubber packing and the supplied pouch, this makes it fairly easy to mount on a bicycle and gives some protection for bumps.
The pack can deliver the rated current, but not more than that. The missing strain relief is rather bad.
