High current cells with moderate capacity.

Discharge curve tracks very nicely and keeps nearly constant capacity up to 20A.
The vertical line at the end of the curve is because I have stopped the discharge, but is still recording, i.e. it shows maximum temperature (gray line) and how much voltage the cell recovered (Red line).
The cell gets warm at 20A discharge, maximum temperature is just below 80°C
At 30A the temperature goes slight above 90°C.
This cell is one of the very good high current cells with decent capacity.

As always, thanks for the review.
So guys, I didn’t compare graphs, but what are we thinking here, maybe HE2s?

Compared ‘em
Almost identical to HE2s it seems. In fact, just a whisker better.

I’m surprised no-one else has commented.
Do we know who is selling these?

Good to hear. HE2s are still great cells.

Anyone compared these to Samsung 25r graph or is the consensus they are LG he2?

One thing I’ve noticed on most websites is that name brand cells are cheaper then the rewrap brands. You would think the rewrap would be cheaper then the name brands. But they are $1-3 more per cell. Only rewrap I have are my 26650 because I’m not aware of any big manufacturer that’s selling them under their name. But one of them has to be making them.

Blf has changed a lot since I've been here. Lots of snow flakes and easily offended over nothing. When the forum use to be great and people joked around and could take a joke. It's a forum it's not that serious. Let's make BLF great again!
