This is fairly standard alkaline discharge curves, but capacity is a bit on the low side.

Conclusion
These batteries drops slightly faster in voltage than most Alkaline, i.e. they are a bit low in capacity.

Thanks HKJ and also to the donor. Dick Smith is an Australian that has done lots of things with his life.I dont believe he would have anything to do with these batteries.
