A new generation high current cell from AW

The two cells matches fairly well on capacity, but there is a voltage difference.

As usual with small cells the discharge is too fast to get high temperatures.


I wonder about the difference in voltage between the two batteries, are they different age?
The capacity matches fine enough.

Thanks for the review!

Thanks for the review!

Thank you for this review. These cells have not the oomph to really fire up a Kronos X5.
But are better than most of the expensive rewraps with the big (flashlight) names on them.
