Older high current cells (Data sheet says 2014) with fairly low capacity.

The two batteries tracks very nicely and has nearly constant capacity at any current.

Conclusion
This cell is a good at high current, but capacity is low by today’s standard.
Performance is very similar to LGs HB4 cell, I wonder if this cell has better lifetime (I do not have a full data sheet on HB4).
Notes and links
Vapcell told me that I was missing some cells in my comparator and they would be happy to supply them.
