The discharge curves looks very fine, they are well matched and the cell works fine at any current.

Conclusion

These batteries looks very good and if the specifications are correct they will be some of the top batteries on the market.
But the “free” charger is nothing to talk about.

Actual warranty or BS marketing?

If former, I am wondering how they’ll measure the recharge cycles if RMA’d.

It do not look like it, these have slightly more capacity.
