With todays standard this cell is fairly low capacity for a 18650 cell, but that is what Tenergy sells.

The discharge curve looks very good, the tracking is nearly perfect and capacity is nearly constant at any load.
It looks like the over current protection trips at the end of the 5A trace and at the same time for both cells.
