This is a cell with high capacity for fairly high loads and with good cycle life.

The matching between the two cell is very impressive and capacity do not drop much with load. I looks like the rated current of 10A is very resonable.

Conclusion

There is not much to say about this cell, it looks like a very good cell and is designed for use with standard 4.2 volt chargers.

Thank you for the test very informative. Seems like the MH1 holds a higher voltage and has virtually the same capacity and is cheaper than the panasonic 3400mah!
