battery at the top of the picture is definitely fake.
battery at the bottom seems as genuine.
the middle battery I think is fake, but need other picture of it.

to recognize genuine one please put the battery into the camera and see serial number -Menu - battery info
if serial number has 6-7 signs - fake
8 signs - seems as Canon original

Genuine serial numbers can be both 8 digit and 7 digit.]

it is hard to believe for me that genuine could has 7 signs.

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.

it is a very common mistake.
If you want to evaluate the capacity you have to discharge battery from 100 to 0 in the camera. the reasons - fake battery also don't have good linearity in discharging %%.
Some battery could be better than original in range 60-100% of charge, but!! after 30% drops to 0% in 5 sec

I have 3 of the 5 different label types shown below....

not 3, all 5 stickers from your images are different!
the first battery is very old - without date
one question about this one due to the quality polish of plastmass is questionable.

How old this battery? If it was used a lot it might be genuine.


which one from these five batteries has 7 signs in the serial number?
I have tested more than 200 LP-E6 batteries from different sources and never seen genuine LP-E6 with serial like 1234567 (all genuine from my experience had 12345678)

For what it's worth, my 3 LP-E6 batteries, one that came with my 60D, and two others I purchased from B&H, all have 8 character serial numbers.
