Conclusion

This battery uses a Sanyo cell, this is a good quality cell and as can be see on the curves the two cells does track very nicely. There will be no problem with series applications of this cell. The high voltage can be an advantage in smaller (i.e. 3-4 watt) lights where the battery replaces two CR123 cells.
All in all a very good battery.
