The cells is without any protection circuit. Note that my termination condition is 100 mA not the official 50 mA, this is probably the reason that my result is below 2500 mAh.

Each test does discharge the cell slightly, that is the reason for the seperation between the tracks and because they have no protection the test run all the way up to 15 ampere.

Conclusion

This cell shows good test result, and I will rate it as a very good cell.



Notes and links

The batteries was supplied by cpf user "Candle Lamp" for review.

2600mAH with a termination voltage of 3V sounds good, Do you know where can be purchased?

Not really, but try google and search for "lg icr18650-b3", then you will get some possibilities.
