Fake LG D1s vs genuine ones

After buying 2 sets of fake LG D1s i got pissed of.

Fake LGs: https://www.ebay.com/itm/183450763218?ul_noapp=true
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4PCS-Liitokala-100-new-original-18650-3-...

Differences between genuine and fake LG D1 cells:
- genuine has matte washer, fake has shiny
o source: https://batterybro.com/blogs/18650-wholesale-battery-reviews/104619270-c...
- genuine has smooth wrapper, fake has wrinkled
o from all of the genuine LG cells tested, none had wrinkled wrapper
- genuine has no bottom wrap or at least a narrow one, fake has thick bottom wrap
o source: https://lygte-info.dk/review/batteries2012/LG%2018650%20D1%203000mAh%20(Pink)%20UK.html
- genuine cell charged to 4.20v should have a capacity of 2550mAh and only charged to 4.35v should have a capacity of 2900mAh, fake charged to 4.20v has a capacity of 2960mAh which means it is a 4.20v cell and charging to 4.35v could be dangerous and lead to disasters
o source: https://lygte-info.dk/review/batteries2012/LG%2018650%20D1%203000mAh%20(Pink)%20UK.html

The batteries from ebay are the same with the ones sold as “Liitokala D1”. Same capacity, same wrinkles, same shiny washer, same thick bottom wrap, etc. I think it’s the same cell with Liitokala HG2 also.

Nevertheless i told the ebay seller that i want a full refund for fooling me around with these fakes.

Discharge curve looks similar to ncr18650pf at 5A (2.73ah, 9.3wh, 50c) down to 2.9v:

But not like HKJ’s:

I was able to see them this morning. I wonder if they disappeared from the hosting site?

I’ve uploaded them on Google photos. Maybe those people who have account on Google can see it. I try to fix it.
