This is not the most impressive discharge charts, the cells has different capacity. They have no problem delivering the rated 1.5A

At twice the rated current the cells warms up a bit.

Conclusion
These cells is not the highest capacity in 14500 cells, the current handling is fairly normal for non-IMR cells. The length is fairly short for a protected cell.
I do not like the mismatched capacity.
