14500s real or fake?

Can anyone tell if these are real ?

http://www.dinodirect.com/TrustFire-Rechargeable-Li-ion-Battery-900mAh-TF14500.html?cur=USD&AFFID=11&DinoDirect

$6.00 seems like a good price as long as they are the real deal.

They are still cheaper at DX and at least you know you are getting the real ones. Yeah DX is one of the most annoying dealers out of all of them, but I wouldn't trust anything from Dinodirect as being genuine.

Well, do their picture actually shows the exact product they are selling? Might be a "stolen" picture. Hard to know...

All I can say is that they doesn't look the same as the ones I bought from KD about 2 months ago. I would think KD sells the real deal so personally I would not take a chance on these ones.

 

EDIT:

My looks the same as the ones on DX.

Fake....sorry I mean real. 

I lied, I have no idea.  I'm glad I could assist you at 4:30 am.  Time for a coffee very soon.

I've been on "Real vs. Fake" threads before, but they have never involved batteriesCool
