Lenovo 70+ battery - counterfeit?

2019-02-21, 17:09 PM

Hello everyone! I bought a new battery for my ThinkPad T510 a few days ago and today it arrived in the mail. After observing the battery for a while I found something odd about the battery. There was a black sticker on top of the Lenovo logo. I removed it and under it was the Lenovo logo like usual.


I decided to search from Google about this and a couple of threads from these forums came to my attention. Due to this I decided to post this thread to help me identify my battery.


I attached a picture of my new battery. Any help in identification would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Looks like a used Lenovo battery that may (or may not!) have had the cells replaced.  Looks under power manager>battery to see if it has any cycles registered and for the manufacturing date and date of first use.
