A 20650 cell, this means slightly larger diameter than 18650, but same length. This cell is a high current cell with good capacity.

The discharge curves looks nice, nearly constant capacity at any current.

At high current the cell do get warm, here I had to stop the discharge due to temperature.

Looks like it might be a rewrap of the Sanyo NCR20650A you tested earlier.
