There is some capacity difference between the cells. They handle up to about 20A without much capacity loss.

At 20A they get hot.

And at 30A I had to termiate the discharge due to temperature.

Hi,
presently am illuminating glass sculpture using 12 EFEST 18650 batteries.
for lighter colours, yellow and orange, these last for well over 6 hours.
For darker colours need to upgrade to 26650, so thanks that review.
Sorry – unable to load pictures.
