I din't have time to post them, yet.

 

Panasonic NCR18650A bare cell 3100mAh

Panasonic NCR18650A with Button top - without protection (wrapped in black PVC)

Panasonic NCR18650A Protected Cut off at 7A  (with 2 types of full button tops), cut off at 2.5V

High drain Panasonic CGR18650CH  10A continuous discharge with button top

 

-------------------------

HKJ - you will get some new "players" in your testing collection.

Learned from AW, and Redilast , and made even better 18650 battery.

 

-------------------------

 

Unfortunately protection circuit on cells that you have is with only one FET, and it will trip on about 3A always.

 

I also understand that seller had very good intentions , but lower price, and manuf. promises made his project not so good on test bench.
