Inside the rubber the batteries are packed in two layers of shrink wrap.
The cable do not have a real strain relief, but the shrink wrap helps keeping it in.

The pack uses Chinese batteries, not really a surprise with a 4400mAh pack rating.

The protection circuit looks like it is checking both cell pairs, but without balancing.

Capacity is considerable better than rated. The over current protection can trip at 5A load (This is temperature depend).
The pack was up to about 53° during my test (Measured in the pouch).

The pack can easily drive a 10W load, but 30W is a bit much (25W would probably be fine).

The pack works fine, but has a fairly low capacity.

Those crappy packs make me never regret spending some time to assemble a 6x NCR18650B pack myself. At 10200 mAh / 7.4V, my 2x XM-L2 bike lights (one throw, one flood) run for 3+ hours on max brightness Silly
