This is a older Sony cell with fairly low capacity by todays standard and moderate current handling.

The cell can deliver about 10A and capacity is fairly constant with load. The two cell has a very good match.

Conclusion
When this cell was new it was probably both high capacity and fairly high current in top quality, today it is not very impressive.
Notes and links
Vapcell told me that I was missing some cells in my comparator and they would be happy to supply them.
How is the test done and how to read the charts
How is a protected LiIon battery constructed
More about button top and flat top batteries
Compare to 18650 and other batteries

By modern standards you could call this “the missing link”. Wink
But you also have shown us how far we have come. Battery-wise. Thanks.

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