Maximum temperature raise at different discharge currents: 1A:+2,8°C, 2A:+5,8°C, 3A:+9,5°C, 5A:+1,6°C
The black series of AAA from Amazon.
The reason for the low temperature increase at 5A is because the cells cannot deliver 5A

The discharge curves are not very good looking, the cells has different capacity and are not very good at high current.

Conclusion

The performance of these cells are not very impressive, they can be used, but for good performance get some other cells (Like the white Amazon AAA).
