    Bought from eBay. For not much so alarm bells ring. Box has hologram
    and paperwork looks right. Thing is I could understand them going to
    all this trouble if they were undercuttting the cost by a pound or 2
    but 2 of these for 19 quid makes me think they are probably fake but
    why bother. Is it just possible they aren't ????

    well its a good price if they are real canon ones, see how long the charge lasts for that might be a giveaway chris

    There's almost certainly no way for you and I to tell without REALLY looking into it.

    The places that make the fake goods are now just SO good that it's coming down to people saying things like watch for the clarity of the printing in the upper right corner and stuff like that!

    Really the proof is in how good it is in camera! if it works ok and lasts long enough

    Well we shall see , if they are fake someone has gone to an awful lot of effort to make them identical- even the yellow plastic battery cover is identical and I mean ideantical!- the hologram is a canon eos original hologram, it is charging now - if it lasts even 3/4 as long as the original it will be a bargain

    According to google if the top of the packaging is slightly blurred, and the hologram doesn't say 'GENUINE' and doesn't change colour, then it's a fake.

    Well the top isn't blurred and the hologram says genuine and changes colour!

    Thing is it seems too good to be true. So it probably is

    Skywatcher,

    Would you be so kind as to keep us updated? If you're pleased with yours I may ask you to divulge your seller's name so that I can buy one too!
