A 18650 with 3100mAh and fairly high current.
I like the plastic box Efest uses, it is made to protect the battery from impacts.
The discharge curves tracks very fine.
I forgot to put the temperature sensor on one of the batteries.
That means it did run the full discharge curve and got fairly warm
Especially at 20A (It did not work anymore after this test). This also shows that it has proper safety, that disables the battery if it gets way too hot.
This cell has good performance at moderate current, but it is not a super high current cell.
