A second way was that I used an app to measure my mAh (don't have the app name right now. Not installed now and can't find it, but it's a popular one).
EDIT: The app was Battery Monitor Widget. I used the stock battery first to get a base mAh based on my actual usage over a week. Then used the 3rd party batteries and did the same. The 3rd party batteries came out to be FAR less mAh than stock.
The third way only applies to one of the batteries (EDIT: The Hyperion I had). I removed the label and printed on the actual battery under the label was the true mAh, which was half of what the label said. (The sticker said 2200mAh, but the battery said 1100mAh)
Plus all the labels were cheap stickers. The batteries looked more legit online than they dI'd in person. In person, they look homemade and felt lighter than the stock battery. (MUCH lighter).
EDIT: To be clear, all of this was with my old phone, a Galaxy S2.
Also, that Battery Monitor Widget app didn't seem to work with the OGP, which is why I don't have it installed still.
