The above specifications is from the dealers website and there is a few errors in it!
This battery is not made by Panasonic. The cell inside the battery is from Panasonic, the protection cirucit and the assembly work is done by somebody else.
Notice the length of the battery, it is the longest 18650 I have seen to date.
The capacity looks very good as expected for a Panasonic 3400 mAh battery.
The protection at 6.5A makes it very difficult to overload these batteries, but is high enough for any normal use.
This is a very good battery, except for the length. Only buy it if you know you equipment can use a very long battery!
