A 18500 battery, the 1 mm more thickness compared to a 17500, do increase the capacity significantly.

Conclusion

The battery looks very good when stating inside the rating, but it can deliver considerable more current.
A usual this type of battery gets an acceptable rating.

You can get twice the capacity with a cell the same diameter and only 15mm longer. Shocked

My English isn’t perfect but I’m trying to improve it. If you see something that doesn’t sound right or is just plain wrong, please feel free to point it out! Smile

Yes, 18650 are the premium cells, both larger and smaller cells has less capacity for the volume.
