The latest battery scam from China.
I tried 3 cells, there were surprisingly well matches, but below* rated capacity and not able to deliver much current.
They do stay cool.
Also at "high" current.
Any brand name cell is cheap compared to these, when looking at $/mAh. For cheap cells look for brand name 2600mAh cells, never something above 3500mAh.
The rating is, of course, bad
Notes and links
*"Very much below" is probably more correct.
