A 18500 cell with a very high maximum current, the rating is higher than for many 18650 cells. This means the cell has a fairly low capacity.
The curves overlaps fairly well and the capacity is nearly constant. This is very good performance all the way up to 15A.
These battery has very good high current performance, but the size limits the capacity (If you have 15mm more length, you can get more than twice the capacity).
With the performance of these cells, I will call it a good battery.
