Does indeed. I googled the internal battery protection and have been using them "outside" their intended use for several years. 
In the years I've abused them I've only had one cell in a 2 amp battery go bad. The remaining 18650's went to good use in my TTGo T Beams. 

Nice little unit and something I use widely in all the bollox that's necessary to run a race car.

The Ryobi LiIon battery packs have full battery supervisory systems inside the battery, same as laptop batteries.
