The two cells have different capacity and do not handle high current the same way. It looks like they can handle 10A
I got a fairly high internal resistance, because I measure it at high load.

Conclusion

The performance is fairly average for 18490/18500 high current cells, but the bad matching means they cannot be used in series.
