Cool Fake battery in retail packaging ?

Ok, ok, its an ebay purchase. However i did look for items that are at least packaged better than cardboard box.
In this case i bought retail packaged fairly genuine looking item.

However peeling off label reveals beaten up, scratched and dented body. Print is black ink, not etching/pressing.

Writing as follows:
LS LP54657SA-V
CT13 AY07

Reverse side is blank with some more scratches and dents.

Weight of the battery is 1-2g less than original (33g vs 31-32).

Googlefu reveals some chinese manufacturer (TIANJIN LISHEN BATTERY JOINT-STOCK CO LTD) and "Li-ion Prismatic" type (whatever that means).
Never i seen it described as samsung product.

Will add photos later.

I am pretty sure its fake, can someone comment on my findings ?

Ok, the weight: that is part of the truth. I've got fake batteries which were considerably lighter than the original. Apart from the label, the black printings are not comparable to anything else.

Quick test: discharge any residual charge from the original battery and from this one. Then turn off the phone and measure the charging time of both batteries. You should have a rough idea of how much "juice" the phone is storing inside the two akkus.
