The discharge curves looks fine, with good tracking and little capacity drop due to load.

Conclusion

This cell is not the 18350 with highest current capability or highest capacity, but a good compromise.
I will rate this as an acceptable cell.

These look ok cells, similar to the kinoko 18350 in your comparator
