I just received a spare battery for my redmi 1S, it just looks different from the one I got included with the smartphone.... kinda bugs me and I think the new one may be a fake one.

here the differences and the photos:
1) the new one is a lighter shade of orange;
2) the label on the new one is not properly glued to the plastic;
3) the contacts are different;
4) the SN font is different.

Hi,
I ordered the phone and an extra battery from efox-shop.com. It's the same thing you have. There are these differences.
I'm using the extra battery now for 2 weeks. There is no difference in battery live or in charging. I'm satisfied with both!
Try it out.

Hi guys, now it's my turn!
I got a Redmi 1S from ********** and the battery is this BM44 2200mAh.
Since the original battery is a BM41 2000mAh, this should be 100% fake. Is it??

It was inside the Redmi 1s I bought. It has the same dimensions. But I find no trace on the internet about this BM44 battery model, so it is not from another Xiaomi model. (??)
