GTF%20TR16340%202800mAh%20(White)-Capacity
They are a bit below rated capacity, actual capacity is 250mAh to 300mAh at low load. they do not support moderate or higher loads.

They do not contain energy enough to get warm.

Conclusion
These cells may be cheap, but compare to what you get they are way to expensive. Any decent cell will have about double capacity and handle higher load much better.
I will rate them as bad

Lol, they accidentally added one too many zero's to stated capacity; if intentional then they forgot the letters OH (Outta Here) after GTF. laughing 

 

Thx for the review!

Thx for the review!

That[280mAh!] sounds about right! Maybe the cycles should also have a Zero removed! 100 instead of 1000!! lol!

,,,,Thanks,,HKJ. Cool
