Low-Cost Sony Battery

Hello forum,

I recently bought a couple of sony np-fm500h batteries on a popular 4-letter website. They were shipped from Hong Kong by a Spanish battery retailer, I think, and the price was quite convenient (not suspiciously low, but much lower that the official Sony Price).

I examined them quite carefully, including box, serial number, etc. and compared them with other genuine batteries, and I wasn't able to find anything that speaks "fake".

I know exactly which batteries are original, because I label all of them, so I picked the ones that came bundled with a camera. However, it's hard to make a visual comparison, because Sony changed the batteries so many times over the years.

Anyway, these new batteries for the moment didn't show any issue.

If it's a fake, what should I expect? Is there any simple test, e.g. shoot 987654 pictures in a row and the battery will melt? 

thanks

MH
