These cells from Keeppower have very good capacity for 18500 cells, but are not for very high load.
Very nice discharge curves with good tracking and constant capacity up to 3A. The 7A trace is cut short due to the protection kicking in.
This is very good batteries for their size for lower current applications, but if you have the size 18650 is better.
Two of these cells has about the same length and voltage as 3xCR123, the diameter is larger and the capacity is higher.
