A 18350 with fairly good capacity from Soshine, the specified capacity and fast charge rate is a bit on the high side.

The curves matches fairly well and the cell can easily handle 3A.

Conclusion
The cell has fairly good capacity and is not a high current cell.
Performance is good, but there are cells with either more capacity or higher current.

Thanks mate for the review! I have a few Soshine 16340s they are good quality but not high drain. Soshine usually makes good cells i wonder why the capacity is so much lower then rated.
