You mean LG HG2? I am not sure if LG HQ2 even exists. I have very good experiences with HG2 cell, it is one of the most robust cell in 18650 format. And one of few which is capable of fast charging without affecting cycle life. The standard charge rate for this cell is 0.5C and this gives you in 8p configuration charging current of 12A. I have tested this cell also at 1C charging current (24A in 8p) and it is still possible without significant capacity loss. And finally this cell can do 1.33C continuously (32A in 8p) without heating problem but this high charging current is already affecting its cycle life.
I emailed a few sellers on AliExpress and Alibaba and didn’t get a good feel for the products they were selling. There’s A and B grades, old stock, fakes etc. So I went with Mahbattery in the US. Had to ship to a Kinek in Niagara Falls over the border then picked them up there, no issues. No one wants to ship to Canada as li-ion are considered Haz. Even couriers aren’t too knowledgeable in what a “cell”is and what a “battery” is. Anyway, at $4 and free US shipping I know I got grade A-1 originals. Mfg date in 2017.
