This is one of the lower quality brands, but how good is this cell really?

The discharge curves up to 1A looks good.

Conclusion
This battery is a cheap battery and there is no guarantee that the actual cell will stay the same, but the one I have tested here looks good (The rated capacity is, of course, to high).

Thanks for the test! The battery works ok but I still prefer an IMR cell with same capacity and better performance (and safety?)

It is a bit hard to say what has best safety, both types of cell will be unknown Chinese cells. The IMR usual has a higher ignition point, but this cell has a protection circuit.
