Looks like. I didn’t realize that LG changed their cell structure so much. Not only are the labels different, but now they use a ’3-leg’ positive pole like most other manufacturers. This will make discerning re-wraps and fakes a bit more difficult IMO.

Regardless of that, we appreciate the fine review as always HKJ !!

It’s great to talk to a company that has the courage to mention which battery it uses.

Thanks for telling the truth Dennis.

This counts very much …..

We also thank our dear friend HKJ, who once worked for us …

I test batteries for whoever send them to me, only limit is how fast I can test them.

Only Samsung tops come close to that geometric shape, but still is easily discernible:

 

Left: this cell; right: Samsung 25S.
