is it normal if these batteries goes around 60 degres on charging? :/ is it safe? or all six bateries are bad?

Assuming that's 60C and you're charging at 1A, that's bad and I would discard those cells. I capacity test mine at 1A and they just get normal hand warm, nowhere near 60C. Maybe 25-30C if I had to guess...

A new wrapper style. From a med pack built in 2017.

I'm currently charging 4 of these at 1A (2 hours into the charging, so the temperature should be stable), my IR temperature gun tells me all the cells are between 44 and 46 degrees Celsius.

Got 4 of them from a dead-circuit Lenovo battery.
Will test them soon.

Does anyone have any experience salvaging these cells?  I charged a few up last night at 700ma and they got up to ~45c once they were over 4v (4.01-4.1), I puilled them from the charger as soon as I noticed.  I just started with four different panasonic ncr 18650s, charging them at 300ma, and want to see if there is a difference.
I'm using a LiitoKala li-500 and I'm brand new to this so any advice is appreciated.

Thanks!

I have about 100+ of these cells, they all come from Batavus e-bike batteries. 
I'm currently charging a new batch with 1a, and they get about ~20c at 4.18v. I have had a few who got hot during charging, but they also had a high internal resistance, I would recommend tossing them.

i just started a NORM Test on my LiitoKala li-500 at 1000mA with 4 these. They had a resistance reading at about 34, 31, 46, and 93.

The first 3 cells with the lower resistance reading got hot to the touch when they got to around 4.1v the 93 is warm but no where near the others. I removed the hot cells immediately and about 10 min later they were still hot.

The Littokala does not test at 1000mA. The highest current it tests at is 500mA.
