This is high capacity cell from a older generation.

The two cells tracks fairly well, but cannot do more than 7A (That us fine for a 5A rated cell).

Conclusion
This was a good high capacity cell some years ago, but it lacks the current ability of modern chemistry.

Vapcell told me that I was missing some cells in my comparator and they would be happy to supply them.
