Inside the rubber the batteries are packed in two layers of shrink wrap.

The pack uses Chinese batteries, not really a surprise with a 4400mAh pack rating.

The protection circuit looks like it is checking both cell pairs, but without balancing.

Capacity is considerable better than rated. The over current protection can trip at 5A load (This is temperature depend).
The pack was up to about 53 during my test (Measured in the pouch).

The pack can easily drive a 10W load, but 30W is a bit much (25W would probably be fine).
