This is a high capacity and high current cell.

The cells can deliver a lot of current, but 35A is a bit optimistic, there is also a problem with difference between the two cells.

Conclusion

The capacity is fairly high and the cell do deliver a lot of current, but I would have like better matching between the cells.



Notes and links

The batteries was supplied by AWT for a review.
How is the test done and how to read the charts
How is a protected LiIon battery constructed

If you call this battery Samsung 30Q, will I have wrong ?
I do not know if you have a different opinion , but I see it as an image discharge , the 30Q.

Thank you for your help HKJ.

I compared the flat top of a 30Q that I have in front of me , to the photo of the AWT.They both have 3 feet , each of which is about half as wide as the gap between them.The HE2 has 4 feet. The discharge curve shows a strong initial voltage sag,followed by recovery,just like the 25R.
