The two cells matches very nicely and can deliver the rated 3C or 12A.
This is a good LiFePO4 battery and as usual for this type it has very stable output voltage and less energy contents than the more common LiIon types, but longer life.
Notes and links
The batteries was supplied by a reader for review.

Around 2/3 the energy density to weight ratio versus a Power Long Battery 26650 NMC cell (LiitoKala Lii-50A, for example). I wonder who makes these, seem very suitable for e-bike or other sort of short range / urban vehicle batteries with high cycle life, for example. They feature a small voltage depression at ≈70% DoD and on, I'd say that is intended to ease the life of battery SoC measurement electronics.

They can be purchased in their genuine wraps here and there (for example):


The human mind, and its programming, is at the forefront of a particular battle of The Light vs evil dark forces. Nearly every human being on this beautiful planet “Earth” has some sort of negative mind programming in its mind. And you better take care of your mind programming, or someone else will in this wicked world.

Please avoid fully quoting lenghty posts, namely with nested quotes. Trim quotes down to the essential. Helps with neatness and legibility. Thanks.

Thank you for the review of these cells.
I have built a 12V (4S) battery pack with these cells, and it works very well.

This is the BMS used for the battery pack: https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/32976068743.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.27...

I use this charger: https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/32866007777.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.27...
