This is a 21700 cell with build-in USB-C charger, the cell is a protected high capacity cell.
The two cells match just about perfect and can easily deliver the rated 8A.
The USB charging uses a switching regulator to keep the heat down, I measured about 10°C temperature increase at the front of the cell during charge.
The USB-C input do not follow any protocols, except signalling it needs power.
It is a good battery and the USB charging means it can share charger with a mobile phone, this is very practical when traveling or when having only a few LiIon batteries. Only caveat is that the battery is considerable longer than a standard 21700 cell.
