A 26650, i.e. considerable fatter than 18650, but the same length. Capacity is higher than 18650, but not as much as the battery volume increase. Depending on where I check the specifications the maximum discharge current varies.
The battery works well up to 7A, higher current do look strange and 30A do not work (I redid the curves at 10A and above, they looked different, but did not improve).
The battery works fine at "lower" currents, but it cannot deliver the current that is printed on it or anything near that. When using 7A or lower the battery looks good, but capacity is a bit low (but higher than rated).
