This is a older high current cell (Datasheet says 2011).

Conclusion
In its time it was a good high current cell, but compared to a modern cell it is not very impressive anymore.
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

Why do you test all these old cells?
Even if I wanted to buy one of these, I won’t find them in new condition, so testing them is rather pointless, isn’t it?

I believe it is interesting to see their performance compared to other cell. You might get them in the same condition as I do, it is not like I have saved the review for a couple of years before publishing them.
As you can see in the reviews I got the cells from Vapcell and I am testing them when I have no other cells and I also believe it is better to publish them than not publishing anything Smile

I may reduce my publishing speed on LiIon batteries soon (A few months), usual I get a lot of batteries at this time of the year, but I have not received many yet.
