The unloaded voltage of your pack, and the number of amp-hours used are
consistent with each other, you are about half-way through the usable
amp-hours of the battery, which has a 2.3 amp-hour rated capacity. Not sure
exactly what to expect about the voltage drop under load, but I am not
surprised by it, it would suggest the battery supply has about a 350
milliohm resistance which again is not surprising.
I think all is normal with your battery and rig. I'm sure someone else on
the list with confirm or deny me!
They could have used Panasonic 3.2 amp-hour 18650 cells in the battery pack
with no increase in size for longer operating time, but maybe it was a
