Re: "Subpar" Nikon EN-EL15b Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Batteries

I've seen numerous fakes with other signs. The most prominent being shallower engraved letters and numbers on the front of the battery. Actually I tell a lie. The most prominent difference is battery lives ranging from 4:30 to 2:10 while doing a timelapse with identical settings until the batteries run dry.

All the batteries, fake or not, have the four slices in the hologram. There is no extra print on the front of the battery.  The weights do seem to vary between units.  I haven't received errors on any of them, but I did notice one battery showing overall photos taken with that battery, and not photos taken since the last charge.
