I will also mention I monitored cell temperatures here and there. The cell was simply sitting on a board, no insulation or end plates squishing things together.

At .5C there was almost no noticably increase in temperature. I shall recheck this when I test the other cells.

At 1C dis/charge I saw a pretty constant 4F above ambient in cell temperature. The cell heated up very uniformly. The terminals I thought would heat up as well, but they always remained at a lower temperature than the cell. This may be due to the large aluminum blocks on them.

At 2C there was a good temperature increase. Probably more like 10-12F. I'll also have to verify this because I'm not 100% what ambient was.
