Yes, twenty amps. No, not thirty (30) amps. Yes, I know other stores claim these cells are 30A.
Sony's test results:
Mooch's test results:
A good 20A cell that delivers good capacity at an average temperature, but do not exceed 20A.
The Samsung 25R delivers a bit more capacity to 3.2V though and runs slightly cooler.
- Temperature rose to 96°C at 25A. That's way too hot for decent cycle life and significantly increases the chances of the cell venting. This is a 20A cell. Do not run it above 20A.
