Conclusion
This is an older high current cell for tools, the last 10 years has improved cells significantly.
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

Thanks for the test I have a bunch of these I’ve pulled new out of tool packs. I use them for vaping when I’m at home and dont need the extra capacity. Ryobi still uses these in there low capacity tool packs along with the 1300mah light green LG batteries

Blf has changed a lot since I've been here. Lots of snow flakes and easily offended over nothing. When the forum use to be great and people joked around and could take a joke. It's a forum it's not that serious. Let's make BLF great again!

They were also the stock batteries in the first generation Milwaukee M18 standard battery packs. I have harvested many from packs that charger said were dead. Usually only the very first cell in series was bad, so you got either 4 or 9 good cells. Yes, I use them for vaping as well.

I’ve found in a lot of tool packs one cell or a couple cells are bad and the rest test near or at full capacity. Or the circuit board went bad. I find a lot of people let them get wet. There will be one or two really rusted cells which are dead and the rest are fine. When your lucky you find the display packs. When they switch out the displays they have to recycle the batteries. I’ve found about 20 20r cells from Milwaukee packs that test at or over 2000mah. I don’t bin scavenge nearly like I use to. Once a month a maybe at my local Lowe’s. I use to go once a week to 3 separate stores. I have so many cells I could never use them all now.
