1. I have recently bought a 9-cells battery (1 week ago) for my thinkpad x230. I use windows 7 64-bit and I have installed Power Manager.
2. I have performed Battery Gauge reset.
3. The FRU number on the battery is "FRU P/N 45N1027". However, on Power Manager it says that is "FRU P/N 45N1029" and 7 cycle count.
4. Condition is Poor and the battery can store 65% of the its original full charge capacity according to Power Manager (56.58Wh out of 86.58Wh).
5. I tried to update battery firmware but I could not because it says that it not need update.
Q1. Is the Battery Genuine (You can check attached)?
Q2. Is the battery damaged and need to return it back?
Q3. Is there anything else I could do for this battery?
Thanks all in advance.

No doubt, the battery is faked. Its both sticker and case surface don't have mandatory parts and symbols Lenovo genuine batteries have. Moreover, even the battery's case itself isn't from Lenovo genuine battery.
Do it well, worse becomes itself
