I finished up testing out the 4th cell last night. The capacities are as follows:

1) 18.6 Ah
2) 17.8 Ah
3) 17.8 Ah
4) 18.0 Ah

Cells 2-4 were fully charged at 20A, fully discharged @ 20A, and then recharged again @ 20A. Cell #1 was charged and discharged at least 4 times which may explain its higher capacity. In any case this is what I have. As you can see the batteries are below their 20Ah specification, which is probably why I have them (A123 rejected cells) and they were so inexpensive.

The next step is to throw them together into a pack for the Paseo.
