A large LiFePO4 cell that can handle very high current.











The two cells tracks nicely. My test only goes to 30A and the cell has no problems with that.





At 30A the cell do not get very warm.













Here I calculate the internal resistance by turning 1A on/off during a full discharge.


Conclusion

The cell looks good, it has the rated capacity, and can deliver a lot of current at a stable voltage, but as always with LiFePO4 the voltage and capacity is lower than regular LiIon.
