The 18650 cell which came with my PL-680 has listed capacity of 1700mAh. I tested it with B6AC charger, and it was actually 900mAh.
I am using cells from discarded laptop batteries. These may have higher internal resistance than new cells, but at the discharge rate of portable radios this is not important.
Good cells from laptop packs can have measured capacity of  2200 to 2500mAh.
