This chart is a mess, the two cells has different capacity. At 0.2A A was 2435mAh and B was 2749mAh, neither reach the specified 3000mAh

Both cells can handle 15A without getting too hot.

At 20A the B cell gets too hot and I terminate the test.

Gpower%2018650%203000mAh%20(Yellow-black)-Temp-30.0

The B cell cannot handle 30A, the A cell gets too hot after some time.

Conclusion

I do not like these cells, both are below specifications and they are very different.
As 3000mAh high current cells they are bad.
