The two cells match nicely, they cell can just about handle 15A continuous, but they get rather hot at that current.

Conclusion
The battery is not a top capacity rating, but in praxis the difference is not very large, especially when you need more than minimum voltage.
The battery looks good as long as the load is keep below 15A

Thanks HKJ! These do strike a nice balance of current and capacity. Thanks to Vapecell for helping supply these FST cells.
