I just got a Battery which I bought on eBay and would like to know if it's a fake or not as everything is a bit suspicious. I will post the pics of my original and the new one below. In general they look the same but some numbers on them are different. Also the colors of the stickers are slightly different. I know that can be cause by various reasons but I would like to know if it's a fake or not. If you have the time look up on your original Canon battery NB-2LH. Maybe I'm wrong but at the moment I'm not trusting this ebay shop.

Quoting Dendrobatid (Reply 4): Well done, you have saved yourself a fortune and they are perfectly okay. My ersatz ones all perform better than the genuine Canon ones.
That's what i thought Mick, my trusty clones from Chinese origin always worked flawless with my 10D.
However when i switched to the 20D with a new type of charger it was all over as this charger only accepts genuine Canon batteries.
The truth lives in one’s mind, it doesn’t really exist
