This is a protected 18500 battery from Soshine.
The two cells has different capacity, one is about 1400mAh, the other is about 1150mAh, this is not very good.
Overcurrent protections kicks in below 5A, this makes me wonder if the battery can handle rated 4A current for a full discharge.
This size is usual not very impressive in performance and these Soshine end of in the lowest end of 18500 performance.
But they are some of the few protected 18500 batteries, most other brands are without protection.
