A battery that uses same number as a 3400mAh Panasonic cell (NCR18650B), could that be a good cell? But then GIF is always bad cells.

The GIF brand prevails, it has 500mAh capacity and it can deliver up to 2A, but for once the cells is fairly well matched.

There is not enough energy to heat the cell.

I have never seen that type of cell (I have seen the pictures of it). The usual “fake” cell is produced that way: http://lygte-info.dk/info/batteryDisassembly9900mAh%20UK.html
Or it can be a old cell: http://lygte-info.dk/info/batteryDisassemblyUltraFire%20UK.html
