The discharge curves tracks perfectly. The battery can handle 10A, but gets too warm at 15A.

The cell will be warm when drawing high current.

At 15A it gets way to hot and I stop the test.

Conclusion
A very good cell, that can handle some current (But it is not a high current cell).

Something is different here ………….

The Panasonic/Sanyo NCR 18650 GA, is LiNiCoAlO2 battery, ie NCA.
Here we see the battery cover to indicate that it is …. LiNi*Mn*CoO2 ……
Not that NCA, but it is made like the Sanyo UR18650NSX.
Ie an INR, that list of Mn, will probably have better performance and security of the NCA.

The Enercig battery is likely to be another instead of Sanyo GA?

Am Ι wrong somewhere?

The Panasonic NCR18650GA, states that it is made as NCA (LiNiMnCoAlO2)

Is there a difference?
We are talking about another battery?
