Thanks for yours comments.
I recently bought two pieces on the top nearly $ 20. I think it's a fake though made ​​very sharp, smart ... when put in the machine is still registered but currently only 7 number (the same number more on batteries).
The one at the bottom, it is the genuine goods because it's in my new EOS 70D.
But yesterday I've tried shooting it:
SEGD (fake!): 12 minutes, 14% of all batteries.
SJRD (fake!): 12 minutes, 4% of all batteries.
RH11 (genuine): 12 minutes. 12% of all batteries.

Could you please explain what you mean by the parts of your post that I quoted in bold type above? I don't understand what you're trying to say.

Plus one,
Its always best to clearly explain your problem - that is, if you want other people to take the time to help you.

I am so sorry but I don't speak English.
When I put LP-E6 in my Canon Eos 70D it show only 7 digits.

SEGD (fake!?): 12 minutes video, lost 14% battery life.
SJRD (fake!?): 12 minutes video , lost 4% battery life.
RH11 (genuine): 12 minutes video, lost 12% battery life.

They all look genuine to me. What are the individual serial numbers displayed when you register the battery to the camera?

Genuine serial numbers can be both 8 digit and 7 digit. There are some 7 digit serial numbers that are fake but they will often share a common serial number.

bca8a8d is a known fake serial number you might see. mh27866 was reported as fake in a forum post once but it was probably a mistake since "m" and "h" are not hexadecimal numbers.

These are all genuine

With the link I posted from Canon website notices, you will notice the two upper photos of the batteries the OP had posted are quite similar with the counterfeits Canon has advised. You can take a look at the battery terminals, the 3rd battery photo of the OP has a different look at its terminal (which is similar to Canon's genuine post) from the top two photos which he claimed fakes. Did you check the link? Just asking and no other mean words to apply. :)

I thought they looked fake.
When I heard OP say they were $20 , that clinched it for me!

Canon's own "Fake" spotting website leaves much to be desired. The photos are poor and they don't give enough information.

Here is a much better website for spotting fake LP-E6's : http://tazintosh.com …tch-out-for-counterfeits/ (external link)

They could be fakes but I still don't see any definitive proof just by looking at the photos. Slight differences could be caused by photo angles and lighting. If he posted the coded serial numbers it could help.

Even legitimate Canon batteries have different markings on the labels as compared to the photos. I suspect different generations of legitimate Canon batteries have different caution warnings.

There are definitely different labels from Canon, some due to global requirements, and probably some due to just having had LP-E6s out for at least 5 years. I can remember 3 different labels personally.

I agree. Canon's battery photos were posted in too low a resolution and used a poor example for a genuine battery. There is obviously variability in markings world wide and over the years. Batteries for the American market would have the warnings in English, not Japanese. It differs not only from the one that came with my camera new from an authorized dealer, but from almost every one I've ever seen from B&H and from other sources. I would not use it as a determining factor of real vs fake even though it's on Canon's site. I think Canon did their customers a disservice by posting a poor example for the American market.
