How to distinguish between original and fake eneloops

Good question. But now the most difficult: the answer.

What has to be "carefully seen"? the positive/negative poles? the label? serial numbers?

 

Thanks!

The batch codes on the seam of the clear plastic wrapper round the cell. You'll need to look closely to find them.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

Not that anyone has spotted yet. See this thread. If there are more accurate fakes out there, I've not heard of them.

There may be better NiMH cells, but I've not discovered them yet.
