are these batteries counterfeit?
11 months ago

is this a counterfeit np-fm500h? i got a few as a gift, but given how much i know genuine sony batteries cost (at least from sony), i'm nearly certainly the person that got me these didn't pay regular price. i don't want to break the news to the giver, however, unless i'm certain or pretty certain these are fake. they look legit to me, but the person gave me four of them. at sony prices that's like $240. a $100 gift wouldn't be out of the ordinary, but that place each battery in the $25 range.

anyway, what do you all think? let me know if more pics woud be helpful. thanks in advance for the help!
