    How to tell an original battery from a wrap

    Was reading up on batterys and was surprised to find that alot of the batterys out thier r non original wraps. That is a forgery of the original battery. Just wondering if anyone knows how to spot the difference between a original and a wrap.

    The only way to be sure is to test it like battery mooch does. Most people don't have the equipment to do that. You can pull the wrap off and compare the markings and manufacture to an original, but you still need to know what to look for (and you have to re-wrap the battery).

    That leaves you with buying batteries from a legitimate seller like SF said, and avoid batteries that make stupid claims. Battery Mooch has some of the best information about batteries out there.
