- MAX Discharge Current: 40A

According to specification they are modern high current cells.
These curves do not looks good, one cell is 2800mAh and the other 2300mAh.
One cell reach 80°C and the other 86°C at 20A.
At 30A they get a bit warmer, but due to thermal delay I do first measure it after I have stopped the discharge.
One of the cells cannot handle 15A, before it is warm and this test do not give it time to warm up.
I do not like these cells, they are very different. The B cell has most capacity, but need to be warm before it can deliver high current.
As 2600mAh high current cells they are bad.
