These curves do not trace fairly well, especially not at higher current.
Note: I had a glitch on my test station when testing the A cell at 0.1A, that is the reason for the early termination.

On these curves it is a bit easier to see that the A cells is bad at higher current and it cannot even deliver 5A. The B cells performance is more average.

Here it is very obvious that the internal resistance of the two cells are very different.

Conclusion

The B cell in my test has about average performance, but the A cell has rather poor performance.
If the batteries are used in fairly low drain devices this will not be a problem, but the batteries are not good in high current devices (Anything that can run them dry in less than 1-2 hour).
