A high current 26650 battery according to specifications, as can be seen below that is not correct.
When the test was finished and I removed the battery from my test station the plastic wrapper was damaged due to heat, as was my test station.
This means that the curves for the second battery may be a little bit off, due to the damaged test station as was my next few battery test, until I discovered the damage and fixed it and has started a retest of the affected batteries.
Some of the differene at high current is probably due to the damaged test station, but the capacity difference in the 0.2A track cannot be from that.
The curves looks like the battery can deliver 30A, but obvious it gets to hot doing it.
The batteries has some capacity difference, this means that they must not be used in series and I would stay well below 30A when using them.
