This is a high current and high capacity cell from Nitecore in the usual 18650 size.
The discharge curves tracks nicely, but the cell get rather hot at 20A, I stopped the discharge. The B cell helped with that, the internal protection tripped and I could not do any more tests.
The cell is good, it can deliver 15A continuous and a lot more for a shorter time.
