no way they have a 6 amp-hour 18650. Even the best 21-70 is under that capacity.

Unless that made HUGE leaps in 18650 technology in 12 months I don’t believe they broke the 4000mah barrier, and if they did the discharge rate would be at something like .02C making the data pretty much invalid for any high power application. Even the best 3400-3600 mah were not even delivering 3000mah under load. I would avoid anything without a data sheet also.

Anyone tried these? Looking at building my own packs for an electric car. Good price...free shipping with prime.
I would suspect these are 1000-2000mah cells and would probably suck in an electric car.

I use salvaged Tesla 18650's in my bike builds, great performance, decent price, bit of work to break down the module but not bad once you have the tools and techniques.
