Ampsplus%20INR18650%202500mAh%20(Black)-Capacity
The discharge curves has nice tracking and nearly constant capacity up to 20A.

Ampsplus%20INR18650%202500mAh%20(Black)-Temp-20.0
The battery warms up during a 20A discharge, but not too much.

30A discharge is not really for continuous discharge.

Whoa! So this is a 25R? Did Samsung update this cell? It significantly outperforms previous tests and even the VTC5A by a good margin.

EDIT: I don’t know what happened but I see that now. I somehow was comparing the 20A of the 25R and the 30A trace of the VTC5A. Maybe there was an error loading that curve and I didn’t notice it the first time. I was just comparing it to another cell that was inferior to the VTC5A a minute ago and was like wait.. what the??

Just looking at VTC5A and this cell in the HKJ comparator. No, it’s not better, it’s significantly worse except for slightly higher capacity.

@Agro

I realized that I had made a mistake and updated the post. Thanks for pointing that out anyway. I’d hate to have wasted time hunting down something that wasn’t there
