The cells can handle a lot of current, but there is small differences between the cells.
Being a NiMH cell the capacity differences between the two tested cells is only a minor problem.

Thanks for the test.
Seems like good cells.
Compared to eneloops these have slightly lower voltage under load but overall more capacity and energy…
