The two cells matches fairly well on capacity, but there is a voltage difference.

As usual with small cells the discharge is too fast to get high temperatures.

Conclusion
I wonder about the difference in voltage between the two batteries, are they different age?
The capacity matches fine enough.
Notes and links
The batteries was supplied by aw-akku.de for review.
How is the test done and how to read the charts
How is a protected LiIon battery constructed

Thank you for this review. These cells have not the oomph to really fire up a Kronos X5.
But are better than most of the expensive rewraps with the big (flashlight) names on them.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.
